Hidden habitats.
These, if you can find them, are dwellings where mice, rabbits, and other small friendly creatures are sometimes thought to live.
Beatrix Potter and Kenneth Graham knew all about them, and so did Toronto writer Phoebe Gilman (who, sadly, died in 2002).

MORE TO COME!
Items that I've made recently have sold before I had time to photograph them.  One was a treetrunk (a real log of wood about 4 inches high), with 'caves' carved out of its side.  In each cave a quarter of a walnut was fitted, to take a tiny scene.  I used wooden teddy bears aas inhabitants (well, why not?) and there were  some chatting together, two child bears asleep in bunk beds, an so on.  It was avavilable as a whole or with one or more scenes included, or you could buy the walnut scenes on their own.  The bears are about 3/8 inch high.

In the meantime, here are some pictures of a slightly larger scale scene from a Brambly Hedge book.  The mice who live here have very short arms and legs, so chairs have to be low but beds comparatively wide.  The mice themselves are just over 1/4 inch in diameter (they are very round).

These pictures show parts of a single scene, which is not for sale, but if you'd like to order individual rooms or groups of rooms, please contact me.

My interpretation of the entrance to the home of the Two Bad Mice in Beatrix Potter's story.  Not for sale.  This picture is an enlargement of the one at the top of the page, which is approximately actual size.
