What are your miniatures related secrets?

Recommended Posts

Okay, Etsy has this rule where if you have two Etsy shops, you can't have one of them being secret. You must link them to each other, so it'll be like Living in the Past miniatures: My other shop is adults only, here's a link to it.

And the other will be Adults Only Miniatures-here's my G rated shop [link to it]. Or I can get banned from Etsy.

LOL, it's not a secret, but I notice that in the Netherlands we are more open for nudes or other adult things. Ones I made a granddad naughty box in miniature. A shoebox with vintage nudes postcards, I think you know them the really old ones made about 1900.

Perhaps it's an idea when you won't have that little children see these kind of things. 'Hide' them and people be free to leave the box open or close it when they have children at home and they will keep this stuff away for children.

But this kind of stuff in mini is so small that you need a looking glass to see what is really on to it.

You might want to look at plastic wall anchors--I found an orange one with nubbies that looked ....interesting and later found it under the dollhouse lady's pillow. :p

There was a artist at one of the mini shows here in Chicago that had nude dolls in various poses with smiley stickers over the naughty bits - which I thought was even more hilarious. People weren't really congregating at that table like they were at others, but there were plenty of roving eyes, including myself. :p And, the business cards were flying off the table - so I think they probably do more online business. Everyone has their interests...there should be a market to cater to it.

I just thought of another secret...

I feel really sad for my dolls sometimes because I set my dollhouse in 1895. All those little children will have to experience the first world war. :p

As they live in the magical world of Miniature, you can control how much (or how little) they actually experience of the war. They are protected in a way that the RL children never could have been. :p

I was thinking along lines similar to Rosalind's; mini of my wee folk that emerge from the clay live in pre-WWI times, although the farmhouse yelling at me from the Washington' 2.0's box wants a pre-WWII family; and even if I send any of them off to war, because they live in MY "little" world, none of them will get killed.

mmm true, though I have given my poorer family a recently dead husband/father and a couple of child deaths already (there's a significant gap in their children before the baby. I'm thinking someone died). I guess I can be like "Well, oldest son became a doctor like his father so was kept behind lines, middle son had flat feet, and youngest son was wounded first day out but survived and wasn't too traumatised"

There you go! Or maybe her first husband ran off with the barmaid at the pub and left his wife to raise all those children alone, and she took in laundry and boarders, and one of her boarders was actually a recent widower who had gone into seclusion and wound up falling in love with her.

No, she's definitely a widow, that's half of the point of my 'story' of my dollhouse. :) She's still in black, and she had to move back in with her Dad (and her unmarried baby sister who is a school teacher and perhaps not quite over the hill as she's 24, there's still hope). She's got 6 kids ranging from 14 to 18 months old, and there's 3 adults in the house and they're all cramped in there. :D She can get out of her black but she's following the example of the Queen (though she recently chose to start wearing mauve). So yeah, I really liked that she was a widow and had perhaps lost a child or two along the way and now they've had a large fall in circumstance. I don't mind being cruel like that to my doll's stories. :p Makes it much more interesting!

And now I have planned out that the boys are all safe in the war, huzzah.
