Kelly- there is some great ideas on Pinterest. I would like to build a miniature too, but live on large acreage. I think a big container like someone suggested would be the route to take. Beware Pinterest is addictive.

Kelly,
I found these websites with miniature garden ideas for inspiration.
They also sell miniature furniture etc kind of expensive.

If you decide do go miniature maybe you could make your own miniature furniture.
Bench could be made out of twigs metal wire or even popsicle sticks. Same thing with fencing or arbours and houses. Or even doll house furniture from the thrift store. Small farm animals etc...

Rosemary for trees, moss for grass, sedums would be nice also..
Possibilities are endless...
Now I'm even thinking about it as if I need another project lol...

BTW Blossom I read your post about Pinterest and I'm now hooked thanks for the info...

Your welcome Kelly.

I also think the dry riverbed idea is very nice.
