Dominique’s Maison Garfield on the Humpty Dumpty House website

Dominique’s Humpty Dumpty House

The Humpty Dumpty House is a delightful site owned by the French miniaturist Dominique. Her skill in creating miniature items – I especially like her shoes – is amazing. Dominique’s taste in dollhouses goes from the traditional, the Victorian Maison Garfield to the bizarre Voodoo Boat, with the Harry Potter Asimuthed Dragons in between. The machine translation from French to English may be a bit clunky. The photography is not. And be sure to check out Dominique’s Tips and Miniatures.

A building in Cesar Augusto Fonseca Ospina “small Bethlehem”

Cesar Augusto Fonseca Ospina, Artisan

I was searching for interesting images of large dollhouses on the Internet and spotted this great picture. I thought it to be some sort of multi-story Tudor house. It turned out to be the work of Cesar Augusto Fonseca Ospina, a miniature artisan living in the town of Pacho, Colombia, 55 miles north of Bogota. The town is on the western slope of the Andes Mountains. At 7,008 feet elevation, the air is rarified. So is Cesar’s beautiful work.

A Louis XIV Music Room found on the MontoutMiniMonde blog

Thierry Lompre, Artisan

I saw this wonderful picture on the Facebook Miniaturas /Miniatures group timeline an had to know more about the artisan Thierry Lompre. Besides his work, I love the Khalil Gilbran quote he has under the cover photo on his blog:

“It’s in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”

Following is the English translation of how Thierry Lompre, in his own words, got into dollhouse miniatures:
