Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:It’s A Small World

Very Small Worlds

Naturally I chose to use two of my favourite things for this challenge, dolls and trains. I think miniaturists are so clever to be able to recreate everyday objects in such a small scale. Look at this miniature barrow with all the produce in 1:12 scale.

These things that are loved by children and adults alike bring a smile to my face whenever I see them.

I enjoy the scenery and buildings on model railway layouts maybe even more than the trains.

This is a tiny German made doll probably from about the 1930s.

Of course there had to be Barbie dolls.

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.
