Today we are crossing the Atlantic, all the way to the UK, to admire all the pretty dollhouse accessories by “Lennie’s Tiny World” 🙂
As mentioned in a previous blog post, I have been reaching out to some more fantastic miniature artists worldwide, because I thought it was time to also have some more small miniature sellers out there in the spotlights.
Let’s just dive straight into Lennie’s tiny world today, are you with me?
But First, Who Is Lennie from Lennie’s Tiny World?
To know a little bit more about Lennie and her wonderful dollhouse accessories, we first got in touch through my Facebook group, I think it was. 🙂
She is from Norwich, the United Kingdom, and is on Etsy since 2020.
So here’s her little story, in her own words:
” Lennie has always wanted to build dolls’ houses when she was a little girl but only got the opportunity now that she’s an adult.
She loves creating tiny things. When she was a little girl, she would cut out boxes and turn them into tiny houses and furniture. ( recognizable to me haha )
She did not have her own doll house in her childhood so when her husband gave her a 12th scale dolls house in 2020 as Valentine’s present, she was ecstatic.
She has been assembling 24th-scale kits since 2015.
Lennie was welcomed by a warm, caring community on Instagram and she began sharing her handmade creations with friends.
Most of what she makes in her shop are similar minis she also has in her own dolls’ houses for her miniature scenes.
A registered nurse by profession, Lennie makes minis in her spare time.
She now has a few dolls’ houses, both 12th and 24th scale which she regularly gives new decorations and ‘facelifts‘.
She also has a dollhouse accessories and miniature bag shop, a jewelry shop and a miniature replica of her son’s bedroom, and a number of room boxes. “
Lennies Miniature Influences
Lennie is influenced by real-life influencers, her followers (have you seen my blog post on Instagram influencers yet?), and her childhood memories.
She has been imagining tiny things ever since she could remember. The most talented artists out there inspire her very much.
Which are the crafting materials that she uses and more.
Lennie is a self-taught miniature artist who does research, gets the books that she needs, and experiments with materials, while sometimes waisting some materials on trial and error sessions 🙂 (again, recognizable Lennie! haha)
She mainly uses wood, cardstock, fabric, faux leather, and clay, whatever works. This can be air-dry paper clay or porcelain clay.
Over time, Lennie has built wonderful friendships in the miniature world and some very special ones have led her to suppliers or people that have helped or assisted her in one way or another. ( I love that! )
If something is beyond her skills, she purchases the basic products, so it saves her time to finish an item that she has been wanting to make.
( I do exactly the same Lennie, with my fairy houses! )
When she thinks of something to make, she cannot stop thinking about it until she starts trying.
She has a Cricut machine and now learning to use cardstock for her tiny houses.
If she has a nagging urge to create, she gives some of her minis away to allow room in the crafting area lol ?. (again, so recognizable haha!)

Lennie has created lots of beautiful miniature jewelry and displays for the jewelry.
All 8 of them (so far), are on a scale of 1:12, are handmade
The materials used are resin, lace, filigrees, beads, glue, satin ribbon, acrylic paint, egg carton, micro beads, micro gems, and even natural sea shells.

3. Cute little Easter miniatures
Holiday-themed miniatures are amongst my favorites and Lennie has a few pretty ones as well.
Take a look at the cute little bunny slippers on a scale of 1:12, made from satin fabric, faux leather, cardstock, microbeads, and glue.
The adorable miniature plush bunny is suitable on both a 1:6th scale and a 1:12th scale.
4. Bathroom and nursery miniatures
Get your little miniature bathroom accessories at Lennie’s, that rhymes 😉
She creates miniature collectibles which include: A folded towel with a bow,
a rolled towel, a seashell, a soap bar, and soap bottles fixed on a tray that are not removable.
Also, the little diapers are so cute!
5. Beautiful miniature scenes.
These complete miniature scenes from Lennie are amongst my personal favorites.
Take a look for example at this “miniature garden potting work table” and all of its details.
Or how about this gorgeous “Craft Table Display / Miniaturist’s Work Table Display“? Isn’t it just what you need in your dollhouse?
And last, but surely not least are the little miniature scenes that include miniature sewing-related things and haberdashery.
I am lacking vocabulary now, other than “beautiful” and “cute” over and over again haha!
I will just let the pictures speak for themselves 😉 (there’s more, check out the link below!)
A few customer reviews and a star-review.
Lennie’s store has received a 5-star general review on Etsy:
A few things to consider:
- The main scale of her dollhouse accessories is 1/12th scale, from time to time she makes 6th or 24th-scale minis.
- Everything is handcrafted with great craftsmanship
- You can order custom-made miniatures, but allow her 2-3 weeks to give her enough time to prepare. To finish an item will depend on its complexity.
- Lennie has great communication, so if you have any questions, feel free to contact her!
- The items are mostly one-of-a-kind.
They are handmade so they are delicate and need a lot of care so returns are not effective or feasible in real circumstances.
They are handcrafted and not mass-produced so exchanges are not possible.
Lennie values customer service and will always work together with her buyers. Please get in touch with her about any issues or concerns.
