Celebrate in miniature with St George

April 17th, 2014

We all know the tale of George and the Dragon but he’s a widely travelled saint, as many counties around the world lay claim to him.

Will your dolls celebrate with a miniature scene specially geared up for the big day?

April 23rd is the celebration day in England, but other countries that celebrate include Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania and Serbia.

In England it has always been marked with at least a pint of beer, although St George’s Day was a major feast and national holiday on a par with Christmas in mediaeval times. Perhaps we should start a campaign for a new holiday!

Take some inspiration for your next display from the items from our catalogue shown here. There are many more online, so why not log on, sign in and browse?

A dolls’ house in disguise

April 14th, 2014

Have you ever used an unusual setting for your diorama or miniature dolls’ house scene?

Lorraine Robinson of Fairy Meadow Miniatures transformed an old guitar into an elaborately detailed dolls’ house.

You may have seen this one before, but it’s well-worth a reminder because it’s so perfectly done!

Lorraine has her own blog and explains in it how she created it. She fills it with miniatures from The Dolls House Emporium – and if you browse our offers pages you might be able to do the same – and much more cheaply than you think.

After initially “ruining” her guitar, you can see that it was obviously never intended to be a musical instrument and was really a dolls’ house in disguise!

Lorraine is the Dolls House Emporium’s official supplier and contact in Australia and runs her own showroom, shop and collectors’ clubs there. Check out her website for all the details.
