Light fixtures, seasonal decorations like Christmas trees, pumpkins, Easter stuff, little people, pets...sounds like a fun project.

Dollhouse miniatures are my first love. I started building 1/12th scale dollhouses when I was 14. Definitely not a lucrative profession, but it would be fun to make stuff for doll houses again. When Emma was born I was so excited that I would be able to make a dollhouse for/with her when she gets older. :^)

I do 1/12th scale miniatures, too.

Almost any kind of bead can be a lamp base; use a large mandrel so you can wire it. Transparent beads--especially hollows--make great hanging lamps. Add a 12v bulb and it looks great.

I've made vases and pitchers--the tough part is keeping the edges thin enough so it works in scale. Blown looks better than wound.

Food sounds excellent, would never have enough. I never thought of bathrooms, good point! What fun.

This got me thinking, you could even make tiles for kitchen countertops and or backsplashes!

Please show your progress! It looks really fun!

Anybody have pix of their dollhouse glassware? I've been doing chianti bottles, mid-century modern artwork, and supplies for a witch's pantry.

If you show me yours, I'll show you mine!
