Featured Blog Friday - Late Victorian English Manor Dollhouse: 1/12 Miniature from Scratch

I know I suck and I fibbed about things being back to normal but my job is killing me, I have been falling asleep in my clothes almost every night when I get home so I am really sorry. Now onto our featured blog...

Late Victorian English Manor Dollhouse: 1/12 Miniature from Scratch 

Yep the owner of this blog Gaic is building this amazing dollhouse from scratch! He started the blog in June 2011 after starting the scratch build of this Miniature Manor in Aug. 2010. Being a miniaturist for a long time he had previously made 3 kit built houses and decided it was time to give the scratch built ago. He put allot of thought into the flow and layout of this dollhouse. It is a large dollhouse which sometimes can tend to seem a little dis-jointed and off as you go from room to room but not this one. You can picture yourself being inside this dollhouse walking from room to room and living there. He shows you the step by step of the rooms and how he is doing things. Now jumping ahead to 2013 he is starting to plan the outside facade so it is a great time to jump over and become a follower if you are not one already. Here is the link to jump on over there - as always why are you still here???

You have a special nose to find the miniature exercises that provide the very best in their field. I can not understand that a human being is able to do what I see on ther blog. It surpasses anything in my imagination, and believe me my imagination or are far-reaching.
I'm always quite speechless when I visited Gaic, it's just before that I must have psychological help to continue working with my own poor little creative miniature blog. Smile ...
It's a shame for you that you are so busy at work, I wish it gets better for you.

Giac is a superb miniaturist, one of the best out there! It's obvious that he loves what he does and he is so very good at explaining his every move which is very helpful to his followers. I have yet to read his blog from the beginning and this is something which I hope to eventually do. Giac is also famous for his marvelous cakes which he dresses with all sorts of sculptures to suit the occasion. I would have to say that Giac is a perfectionist. He is also kind and very caring and this is obvious in how he words his comments. I look forward to seeing his beautiful manor reach the final stage and to able to admire it from start to finish, room by room. Thank you for honouring his blog!
