I always say (to myself) I could easily live in your miniature creations. Now you did it! :)

You have great taste, in miniature and life size!

Hi, Brae,

It’s probably no surprise to you that I like the vintage farmhouse, after all, it is the look that we aimed for in our full-sized house. I really want to see you build the Jasper Inlet Light, but, in my opinion, this one gives it serious competition!

Thanks for sharing this,

Bill

What a fabulous addition to your ‘Small’ property empire and hooray for eBay!
The ‘Honeychurch Victorian Corner Shop’ was one of my first projects and I parted with it after receiving one of those offers that are difficult to refuse and I quickly regretted it’s departure. Ha! As a new kit was beyond my budget, I was beyond thrilled when I was able to buy another one through eBay at a fabulous price and with lots of wonderful extras!
I look forward to following your creative journey with this miniature country estate…
Best wishes,
Tee

Hi Brae! I love the double porches and I am very excited to read that it will have a less fancy interior that the Heritage. I want to add that it’s so nice to have you back!

Hi there Brae, Love the new kit. I see “ghosts” of the Haunted Heritage in this one. That is a good thing! I really love the double porches. Excited to see what you will do with it!

Hi Brae! Me again! I just wanted to say I LOVE the “Vintage” wall phone in the Kitchen too! With the extra long coil cord so you can reach across the whole room while talking!!! :)
I remember when that was the newest kind of phone you could get!!!

Hello Brae,

What serenity you have created! Very, very homey. What struck me most about this post was that if you hadn’t followed your earlier posts, you would assume these were all real life photos! Your miniatures are so realistic and in scale that they play like the real thing.

Enjoy your new home!

Hi Brae! I love your new place. It’s spacious and airy! I love your choice of paint and your floors are lovely. I also love your rugs. I think you did a great job of fixing it up and I’m sure you will be very happy in your new space. Did you perhaps forget to show us your craft room? Surely, you must have one. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to see it. Take care and enjoy your new home!

This all just goes to prove that our Mini builds are our Fantasies being worked out in advance….. if we can get to the Real One that is! (My castle is just a Dream….!) Your new place looks Wonderful!
Keep up the Great work…. in both scales!

I must say, I am quite envious. It looks amazing. It’s going to be another year or two before we’ll be able to afford to purchase, and my minis aren’t set up yet (and have just suffered another delay in getting set up), so I have to live vicariously through various miniature and interior design blogs…

Great work, and just as exquisite as your miniatures. Your personal style definitely shines through :)

Wow–unbelievable! I just finished my first “haunted” dollhouse and, although I am pleased with it, it doesn’t hold a candle to this one. Your details are amazing. Mine is also scarier on the outside than it is is on the inside. Thanks for posting this!

Neen [Visitor]

I think the cat tree looks incredible, and it does fit in well with your decor. I think Jasper will eventually love it, especially since the top of the tree is higher than the couch. (My male cat insists on sitting above everyone in a room.)

Hello Brae - I also think the cardboard box is more fun:)))) Luzi is shredding every box and she loves it. Maurice loved shoe boxes. He was much larger than the box, but he didn’t mind:)
But nevertheless I hope Jasper will use his new refuge. Is he playfull? Than you could add some playthings on cords. And of course a really itsy bitsy teeny weeny bit of catmint alsways works.
By the way - your curtains…… I don’t hemm my curtains since years. I aöways think the room looks cosier and warmer with long curtains that flow a little bit like a brides veil onto the floor.:)
Best wishes and purrrry regards to Jasper

Of course he hates it. Cats are the most contrary creatures ever. Good thing they’re so adorable. I never bought anything for mine that they ever used. Did it come in a box? Bet he’d like that.
