Often, when the idea for a scene is taking shape, a little inspiration may help it come together. Here, you'll find furnishings and accessories that suggest a brilliant spring gardens, summer picnics; a serene, snowy winter scene; or the fun of crunchy, colorful leaves in Autumn.
These accessories and furnishings are ideal for decorating a dollhouse, of course, but don't forget about diorama, room boxes, or small projects that evoke memories of a special time. These are a great way to start small if you are new to miniature dollhouse items. If you already have your container or room box, great! But if not, consider one our "Displays" to provide the structure. Or, miniaturists have used almost anything you can imagine as containers for scenes; teacups, shopping bags, tissue boxes and tin cans have all served as settings, not to mention bleach bottles, candy boxes, Christmas balls and (artificial) pumpkins! You can start with a container that suits the season and the scene, or with a simple wooden room box. Make it fit the theme by decorating the outside, too. Maybe decoupage with seed packets and gardening catalog pages for springtime, or test papers and college catalogs for the graduate. Summer travels suggest maps and postcards, while back-to-school in fall needs notebook pages and brilliant leaves. A box wrapped in snowy white fleece might contain a cozy winter fireplace scene, helping tell a special friend how she always warms your heart. Whatever the occasion, look to us for those little details that help a seasonal scene become a treasured memory.
