FEATURED MINIATURIST: Madeline Thoman of La Vie Mini

Blogs and websites that inspire, Uncategorized

One of my favorite things about Flip This (Mini) House is that it helps me connect with other miniaturists. Madeline Thoman of La Vie Mini recently got in touch with me. I just had a chance to check out her website and it’s AMAZING. If you love all things mini, like I do, you’ll adore her curated ensemble of interesting stories and tiny treasures.

One of the more fascinating posts is this one about a father who created a dollhouse grave for his daughter.

There’s a definite dark, beautiful quirkiness associated with dollhouses and miniatures, and La Vie Mini captures it perfectly.

In that spirit, I’ll leave you with a little information about one of my favorite miniaturists, Frances Glessner Lee, as highlighted in this Slate article from 2014.

Merry Christmas! Here’s an old favorite!

I’ve gotten questions over the years about where I source my miniatures and where to find good resources for those starting out in miniature photography. I’ve begun to compile a list of stores, websites, artists and articles that I hope will be helpful to some of you. If you have question, always feel free to ask.
