Miniatures in Italy

It’s been a while since my last Post.  Here are a few updates:  I have not started work on the Denise Cottage Kit. I have only pre-built(no glue) it and tried a few modifications…it’s not going well as I would like. I think I am subconsciously sabotaging my ideas. I don’t know, hopefully things will work out.  I recently went on vacation to Sorrento, Italy. It was just stunningly beautiful. I did all the things I wanted to do except tour Pompeii, so I will have to go back for that.  The food was amazing. I enjoyed every meal. It was a much needed escape from my norm, with rest and relaxation. While touring the Amalfi Coast, driving towards Postiano, there is a miniature version of the town Praiano. A local artist built the miniature clay structures along the cliffs just like in real life.  I can’t tell you how excited I was to see miniatures. Since I started this hobby all things in small scale fascinate me. I guess because I can really appreciate the time, effort, and passion put into making something small. I will share some pictures…Enjoy!


  1. Looks like you had a fabulous holiday. I often find a break gives me the incentive to start something in miniature. Maybe you needed some 'me' time to relax the grey matter =0)

  2. How nice that you've enjoyed your holiday to Italy so much, it's good to relax some time ;O! Yes, Italy seems to be a wonderful country and indeed the food is amazing :D!
    Thanks for sharing the Italian 'miniatures', the houses look wonderful.
