The idea for Booklover Cottage came about when the bookcase in my living room broke. After unloading the shelves, I glanced around the room. All my books were strewn about, occupying every available flat surface - the coffee table, the end tables, the couch and, even, the top of the piano. Wouldn’t it be great if I could just shrink all these books down? It would certainly be easier to store them!  It wasn’t long before my thoughts turned towards a miniature storybook-style cottage, where I could escape to with a good book tucked under my arm. A cozy haven with a comfy sofa and a toasty fire where I could warm my cold feet and let my imagination get lost in an exciting adventure.
