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.
It’s almost ready for the grand unveiling! Here’s a look at the exterior:

Soon you’ll get to see the other side! See which of my handmade items, eBay finds, splurges, and repurposed household objects made the final cut. But first, there are a few more pieces of trim to install, a couple of places where the paint needs to be touched up, and a some final decorating decisions to be made.
I have plenty more photos from the Chicago show to share! These little shops from Wright Guide Miniatures amazed my mom and me! I especially loved the little autobody shop, with its tiny fan belts and cans of oil. All photos link to the Wright Guide Minis website.
