This is my second year making dollhouse sized miniatures. (Or "fairy" sized as I like to call them.) This one has been themed with a holiday kind of style like something you might see in Santa's workshop. The hutch is hand painted in three colors; a beautiful green, a bright red and a pearl white interior. Additionally, the knobs are painted gold. After painting, I go to town creating all sorts of unique items to fill the shelves. It's very particular, precise work and it takes many, many hours to complete a single hutch.

This is the second festive, seasonal holiday hutch I've made and I call it an "Elf Hutch" for fun.




The top shelf features a Santa hat wearing Teddy Bear, potion bottles, and a bear driving a miniature train. The second shelf has some books (perhaps one of them is a telling of "The Night Before Christmas?"), some potion bottles, some brightly foil-wrapped presents and there's even a candy cane hiding away on top of the books.


The bottom shelf has a rocking horse reindeer toy and some more bottles in beautiful tones of blue, silver and white.


For size comparison, the Elf Hutch is shown next to a standard 12oz. can of soda.


I've been making my Faerie Hutches - and well, Elf Hutches too! - for a couple years now. I just love them. They take an absurd amount of time and attention but they're just so darn cute when they're done, I can't help but keep doing them. Grin

Very cute! I have a love (obsession?) for all things tiny...even better if it's tiny and magical!
