Daily Prompt – Miniature

via Daily Prompt: Miniature

As a child I was taken to a display of model railways and dolls houses and I remember being absolutely enchanted by it. That was over fifty years ago but I still love miniature things just as much now.

As an adult I appreciate the time and patience that goes into creating tiny but realistic looking items. Every year I visit the model railway show and I probably spend more time admiring the buildings and scenery than the trains. I’m amazed at dollhouse and miniature shows to see people knitting tiny little garments for dolls that are sometimes less than an inch long.

The child in me just wants to shrink down to miniature  scale and move and move in to one of the houses or walk the tiny streets of a model railway scene.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
