    A Curiosity Cabinet, NEW Mini Hardware and… Gargoyles?

    Filed under Botanical Journal Kit, Miniatures, Teri Calia

    This month’s Botanical Journal Kit got me thinking about Curiosity Cabinets. And today’s new miniature hardware (including drawer pulls) also influenced me remembering this amazing Naturalist’s Curiosity Cabinet by Teri Calia!

    Though cabinets of curiosities were established far before the Victorian age (kind of pre-museum museums for the uber-rich), I think the Victorians were the last (perhaps best) group of humans foolhardy enough to think they could collect and categorize all the wonders of the world. My personal fave is 19th century architect Sir John Soane, for the oddities he collected (and turned his house into). At Soane’s request, his house has been left untouched since his death — almost 180 years ago. Oh, if I could get back to England…

    What am I babbling about? Well, Teri created her own Naturalist’s Curiosity Cabinet, in 1:12 scale using the Millinery Cabinet — and it is wonderful!

    Teri also created a Cabinet of Curiosities Collage Sheet, with tiny little natural history books and Riker boxes (with mounted butterfly specimen) sized for the cubbies in the Millinery Cabinet, but also useful for other 1:12 projects).

    Here’s Teri’s supply list — and they’re all in today’s sale! More info is below.
     

     
    New Miniatures — and Gargoyles!

    Oh my! Those Mini Gargoyles! I so love these little guys! Grey plastic gargoyles that can sit on a tiny shrine or to protect a fortress on your desktop. And those 2 new drawer handles are also included in today’s sale!
