The World In Miniature

I want to share something special with you. The below photos were taken at my local library. They have a display with a rotating theme. At the moment the theme is miniatures.

For those not in the know, making miniatures is a hobby to be enjoyed by both the young, the old and anyone in between. For those with the space, will build and fill actual doll houses. Or for those with limited space, or simply want to create rooms with special themes simply make room sets, such as those shown below.

I happened to speak to the lady, Jacki Mitchell, who set up this display. She had made each of these miniature room sets herself. These miniatures are a tribute to a friend who had passed away. Jacki mentioned that the book The Red Hat Club was also an inspiration point for her, hence it's inclusion in the display.
