Dollhouse Guild Award
Welcome to Life in Miniature!

This web site was last on: October 11, 2002


My name is Jill Lynne Ness. My goal is to create miniature items for your dollhouse or room scene which you cannot or have not been able to find anywhere else; namely, LIFE IN MINIATURE (or as close as we can come!). Most of my miniatures are handcrafted; however, you will also find minis from other dealers (particularly boxed, "name brand" kinds) that I feel are incredibly realistic and have added to my listings. Looking for unique or unusually detailed miniatures? You'll find them here! All miniatures are in 1/12, or 1"=1'scale.

If you are familiar with the Dollhouse Guild Listserv, you may also know me as "Agent Ness" OR the Dollhouse Guild CATalog Coordinator. To obtain archives of the CATalogs of the Week, please see the links at the bottom of this page. Please also see the first link at the bottom of this page for our ORDER FORM!
