Turkopp/cup for hiking

A friend of mine made me these wonderful hiking cups. I have never seen them in miniatures before. One of his hobbies are woodworking, but not miniatures. I gave him a challenge, asking him if he could make hikingcups in 1:12. He did good, don`t you think? They are so cute! Thank you very much Roy.

I don`t know if hiking cups made of wood is common in other countries, in Norway they have been used for many many many years. Norwegian go hiking a lot in the mountains and woods, the cup is just hanging on the backpack and if you come to a pure stream or river, the cup is there ready to use. And of course you can use it for your coffee, soup etc.
They were probably used more in the past than nowadays, but a lot of Norwegian have them at home.


As you can see, in our house there are three hiking cups :)

 Do you have hiking cups made of wood in your country?

In real life our hiking cups hang on the kitchen wall, and here is one in my dollhouse kitchen.




If you want to see more hiking cups, take a look at these cups - not miniatures: /http://eagleproducts.no/treartikler/kopper_krus_i_tre/

 

Thank you so much Roy!

Shopping in Denmark

It is very few places here in Norway where you can buy dollhouses and miniatures, therefore, it is especially nice when visiting a country with dollhouse shops. This is what I bought in Denmark:

The garden

So far we have had a lovely warm summer. I have not played / worked with my dollhouse at all because we've spent a lot of time outdoors, which is lovely after a cold winter. We have planted a lot of new plants, it starts to look good. Here are some picture, some of the flowers in the garden are old and some are new:
