The loving couple have enshrined many of their favourite memories in their miniaturized art work. Lin was once reported saying "In our travels around the world we've discovered that almost all miniatures are done by couples working together. They just chip away at them bit by bit, as if they were working on their own homes."
There were 3 exhibits (A Street Scene, The Butcher's Shop, and Christmas in Norway) that are especially near and dear to the founders for the two of them personally designed and assembled these works from scratch. These exhibits are infused with realism and warmth, and boasting of such fine detail with a clever concept that they are as good as the ones made by great artisans. Here's one of them:
This is a really long street. Probably the longest in the whole exhibition so I took pictures shop by shop. The sequence of the shops featured are as in the exhibition.
I am afraid the other pictures for the cake shop came up blurred.
Rosanna, you should enjoy this one as well.The Clock Shop- Mercedes and her love of clocks
The Cheese Shop-Minikat and her rats
Gazebo- for all of us who love to shop
The Bridal Shop
This one is for Debbie whom we hope will work on her "Belle and Beau" soon.
This is my favourite shop of the whole street. It is obviously also the creators' because this is the biggest shop and because it is the end shop, the side window is also exposed to show more bridal gowns.

The End of The Street
I took these trees for their proportion in 1:12 scale.
Winter Garden (probably 1:48) -specially for Jayne
This part of the post is for mini plant enthusiasts or artisans. I took many close ups for Jayne as we all know she is very particular about getting it as real as possible. I hope you enjoy the pictures, Jayne. I think Mercedes who is doing up her garden for an exhibition, Sylvia, Eva and Katie who once made a plant for her skate shop may be interested in these too.
I love this palm tree!
