A Life in Miniature

In which our Finance Manager, Emma, reveals her vision for a mini-Macknade …

I was at a dolls house festival in London recently, as is my wont, and I had my wish list of items to secure for my mini abode.  Pieces for my study, bathroom and kitchen were all on the agenda.

I compiled a cheese board, in a similar fashion to the real world, basing my choices on flavour, texture and colour and finally settled for the following: Stilton, Black Bomber Cheddar, a Gouda, some Red Leicester and a Camembert round. A little limited compared to what we have at Macknade, but it made for a colourful addition to my house all the same.

My Tudor coaching inn reflects my life to date as well as my dreams.  I have a rubber plant in a wicker basket, much like the one I bought for my (now) husband when we started dating 14 years ago and which still adorns our (real life) living room.

The coffee table in the (mini) living room is a 1:12 scale version of the table the doll’s house itself stands on and the weather vane on the apex of the roof was positioned with a compass.  There is even a Geological map of the British Isles in my miniature study as a nod to a teenage road not taken.

Perhaps then I should not have been surprised that I found myself drawn to the lovely selection of fruit and vegetables on offer, on timber stands, much like in our food hall… I have earned my living in a fine food environment for the past nine years, so it probably should have occurred to me sooner that a diminutive delicatessen and fine food establishment would be forming somewhere in my sub conscious.

These items were not on my list for the day, but the seed has definitely been sown for a scaled reflection of my place of employment.  The next challenge is to convince my husband that we do have the space for another of my projects and that I have not completely lost my cauliflower. I wonder if I can also get a scale version of my calculator…

I’ll keep you posted when it starts to progress!
