1976. My first doll house, made from a grocery box and the figures made from clothes pins and the furniture made from found objects and cardboard.

country kitchen made from a wooden wine box, my collection of miniatures has grown over the years. I find tiny objects irresistible!

The study of an early 20th century explorer. Each tiny diorama tells a story as I have let my imagination go .

Christmas Eve afternoon tea. I love the tiny tea-set!

 

The scale of all of these room boxes is 1″ in 12″ some of the contents are charms from Christmas crackers,  some are from junk shops. For the trophy heads I bought a packet of plastic animals, cut off the heads and stuck them to wooden discs. Such fun! I don’t think I have really grown up!

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!
