You can now also see the first inhabitants of the Tudor Tavern, created in 2017. In making them, I drew on my "Words" life in the theatre...
So come and meet Mistress Quickly, Sir John Falstaff and Doll Tearsheet, from Shakespeare's Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 and enjoy some Pastime With Good Company.
Some more recent views of Small Worlds...
There's also this post from way back in 2012 (before the museum opened) when we were preparing one of the houses - an 17th century Dutch coffee shop - to go into the town museum as a 3D advertisement for the delights to come in Small Worlds.
And I was also having fun with my (at the time) new photo editing programme!
You might also like to see the Dollshouse Book I created to be the museum visitors' book...
This really is the tip of the iceberg - there's so much more to see in the posts themselves. I hope you enjoy them.
“It might interest you to know," Tully says, "that there's a reason people build miniatures. Doesn't matter if it's guys laying out model railroads or women decorating dollhouses. It's about control. It's about reinventing reality." [...] "Some people get a lot of satisfaction in creating a little world they can escape to. In making things turn out the way they want, at least in their dreams.”
