What a treat! I’m not sure how long I have known customer and fellow miniature gardener, Dori Allard but, I’ve known her definitely long enough to call her a friend. So, when she posted this cover of April’s American Miniaturist Magazine on the Miniature Garden Society Facebook page, I didn’t immediately see her name on the bottom, right corner. I knew Dori was an avid miniature gardener but I was slow to realize that she was a miniaturist as well, until I studied the photo and I saw “Scene by Dori Allard” at the bottom. It was my turn to squeal with excitement. How awesome is that!?!
You may not believe me when I tell you that a couple of her photos that were inside the magazine looked full-size. I said to myself, “Wow, is that her studio?” and “Oh, look, she’s making another house!” Lol! You KNOW it’s excellent miniature work when you have to do a double-take to figure out if the scene is really a miniature one! Congratulations, Dori! <3
So, in case you missed it, Dori sent me a copy of her magazine and I wanted to share. She scored 5 full pages as well as the cover! Here is a visual recap of the “She-Shed” article.

How can I get this magazine or book?
Hi Renee, First check with your local dollhouse miniature store. A lot of the brick and mortar stores carry the back and current issures of the miniature magazines. If that doesn’t pan-out, you may have to search a bit online. I wonder if the good folks at American Miniaturist Magazine can point you in the right direction or they may have back issues for sale too. Here is their website: http://www.americanminiaturist.com/
This is incredible! I’m speechless! Beautifully done!
