Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Tiny Buildings

Very Tiny Houses

We have no shortage of tiny buildings around here, there are half a dozen dolls houses downstairs. However, today I thought I’d share some even tinier houses. This one belongs in Naomi’s bathroom. Can you guess what it is for?

A butterfly house Naomi bought recently and attached to a tree in our garden. No butterflies have moved in as yet.

I have three little buildings on a shelf in my bedroom. This little wooden chalet is a money box. It was given to me by an elderly relative in England.

This one is a music box that plays “Greensleeves”.

A shop in Oatlands used to sell these cottages which are made of papier mache I think.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our 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. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
