Happiness is cross stitching blog

Silk,lace and miniature ribbons at the Dolls House Miniatures craft fair.

Hi everyone, I recently visited a Dolls House Miniature Craft Fair, of course I could not resist buying some pretty miniature ribbons, I also purchased some silk from a fabric shop close by.    

I purchased the miniature ribbons for a specific dolls house miniature project I have in mind as I would like to make a  miniature hat or two and obviously I needed miniature ribbon to decorate the hats with.
There were some gorgeous minis on display, my favourite by far was the miniatures created by Vicky Mellor of Secrets Miniatures. I asked if she did not mind me taking photos for my blog and she agreed, the photos are below.    
If you really love miniatures then check out this lovely site here.
This is the lace trim and silk fabric I purchased.  

These are the other mini trims I got.
I also  purchased these miniature hat stands and a mini bedside table.
The little drawer opens, its so cute!
These are the miniature dolls house creations by Vicky Mellor of Secrets. 

Can you believe this is a dolls house?!!!!
This is part of a dolls house collection displayed at Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire, it is a National Trust property.  

This is my favourite part of the dolls house collection there.
Until next time – happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Fantastic pictures Lynn I cannot believe the detail. I love the pieces inside the glass cabinet and those little shoes on the bed. I think I would have enjoyed looking round myself.
    Thanks for sharing
