This amazing project by Jean Jacques Brisson is all over Pinterest so some of you will have seen it before. It's definitely high on my list of the most intriguing miniature projects I've seen and I'm sure lots of you will love it too so I thought I'd share it as not all of you use Pinterest (and therefore have many more hours in a day to do 'useful' things!).
Click here to see the source page which has a couple of other (very different) creations of his. That page is dated Feb 2010 but I don't know when this was made. Unfortunately Brisson's website (www.rectoversminiatures.com) seems to have disappeared from cyberspace. The URL appears in Google cache but the links don't work.
Thanks Nathalie for the information that a video of M. Brisson can be found here
I'm not sure if I should describe miniatures as a hobby or an obsession, but it's the best escape from the cares of the world that I know - and an opportunity to indulge a love of vintage decor without breaking the bank.
