New vendor -- JS Miniatures, maker of Georgian fireplace surrounds
Isn't this lovely? It's a Georgian fireplace surround with faux marble insert from a new supplier, JS Miniatures, in the UK. The proprietor, Jennifer, also writes one of the blogs I follow, A Georgian Dolls House Blog.
These surrounds are available either in kit form, (with wooden structure and one of four colours of faux marble) or ready-made. I really like them -- it's a nice, clean design, and the marble adds a lovely detail!
This blog chronicles the adventures of a group of Canadians building a 1:12 scale medieval or Tudor dolls' house or dolls' castle. We're also working on a William and Mary era dollhouse circa 1700, featuring Jacobean, Carolean and Queen Anne furniture. Dollhouse aficionados, those who enjoy making or sharing doll house miniatures, and people who enjoy sharing crafts with children may enjoy the adventures of this group.
I built the background image of this site using some of the fabulous work from Vintage Retro Grunge. The "Green Man" reproduction medieval tile on the bottom right is by Kate Tiler. The other two, the griffon and the happy little creature (possibly a lion with a bagel?), are both by Pataki Tiles.
