The Hill Family Commission

It is indeed a rare occurrence for me to have an entire family of mice on my work table at one time.  But this week I completed a commission for five tiny Dollhouse Dainties, and I am so pleased with how they turned out that I must share them with you. They range in size from 1 ½ to just under 2 ¾ inches tall.

They are the Hill family, now on their way to live in a half scale dollhouse that is being made for them in Colorado.

These are the parents, Leif and Rose.
They have two little girls, Violet
and Baby Holly.
 Grandma Iris resides with them as well.
There may be plans for a son to join the group ~ I'll keep you posted.

I encountered many challenges bringing this group to life.  So many things that work on a 3 inch mouse are just not the same when they shrink down to this size.  I learned quite a bit and am looking forward to the next teeny tiny ones. 
But for now, I think it's time to tackle something bigger.  I'm currently working with some gorgeous white Tissavel fur for my next fashion bear, who will be in memory of an historic event that took place 100 years ago.  Any guesses?

  1. Laura, this tiny mouse family is perfect. My gosh you are good! To be able to create such small creatures and give each his or her own personality is truly a gift. As for the historic even that took place 100 years ago I've no idea so I guess I'll have to wait and see. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo

    1. Thank-you for your interest in my work. A mouse like Violet, the little girl in the pink dress is $69. Please feel free to email me at laura@cobblestonecreations.net if you would like one made for you.
