Dear Miniature Enthusiast,
We're having a wonderful time here at the Gazette preparing for Halloween and making some pretty fall accent pieces to brighten up the exterior of any dollhouse. The best time we're having is a way of marking time! Charlene joins us this month with a tutorial for a working hourglass that is sure to be the pride of any witch, wizard or sorcerer. And yes, you read that sentence correctly. This hourglass really works!! I can't wait to give this a try and make my own. It's perfect for any witchy Halloween scene, but this fascinating piece would be just as delightful in almost any mini home.
We also have some fun autumn fashions for the exterior of your dollhouse. Wait till you see the secret component of this picket fence window box! Not only will it enhance any dollhouse exterior but I'll bet that it will get you to thinking about other ways you can use this mystery mini. To finish things off, we have a tutorial for a coordinating picket fence in pretty autumn colors.
Oh, did I forget to mention that Charlene is also our Member of the Month? Not only will you learn how to make one of the coolest minis I've seen in a long time, but you'll also get to know Charlene and see a little more of her miniature art.
Have a happy and safe Halloween! And don't forget to treat yourself this year with a special dollhouse just for fun.
