Small log cabin on the stone

Hi everyone! I am proud to share my latest piece finished just today. It was a challenge for me because of it's size, but I am happy with the result. But let me tell you a short story first.

I was waiting for a train on a station two weeks ago. It was snowing and wet and I had 10 more minutes before the train. I looked at my feet: there were all kinds of stones there - you know, the usual ones that are everywhere you go. And I thought - hmmm, interesting, why noone is doing micro-minis on such stones? They are easy to find and provide great surface... The train came but I still managed to grab one stone and toss it in my pocked. (It was pretty dirty and I had to clean my hands all the way to the next station :) )

At home I washed it with soap and was happy with it's look:
 It was pretty heavy, but I didn't pay attention to it. I went to and found some inspirational photos for a small log cabin. Like this one:
I was eager to get started! I have drawn the plan of the house, sit at my desk... And found out that if I make this cabin in 1:144 it'll be so big that it'll cover the whole stone! But I wanted to make a garden too... I was close to ditching the project, but curiosity won: Can I make it again smaller? I've sketched another plan and started working:

Formed tiny house, made curtains and hung paintings:

... I didn't do any more in process photos, so let's imagine a little magic here...

Last, but not least - the size :) I suppose it is circa 1:288, the house itself measures 15mm x 10mm x 14 mm

And this is how I work. At night. In a huuuuuge mess! :)
Thx for stepping by! 
I hope I've inspired someone for seeing tiny treasures where you have never expect to find them :)

Opening of the shop

Wow! I am so excited!!
Today I've put my works into online shop on a Russian handmade website and already sold my first work! That's really fascinating:))
The first work that I've sold is the smallest Christmas roombox, the one with the "stone" fireplace. I've sold it for about 55$. I know it's not much, but I am only taking my first steps in this, and really happy with the result!
That's the 1st time I sell something that I have made myself!
Thanks for listening to this scream of joy :)
Love you :)

AND... done!

Less words more photos :)) (And my special thx to Hannah, who was the only one to tell what she sees on the fireplace. indeed, it was a doll for dollhouse for dollhouse. Hannah, thank you so much! I'm glad to have readers like you :)
 On the coin to see the scale.

 cups and dishes are hand painted. There's a candle on the shelf of a fireplace, though you can't really see the wick
 dollhouse on the shelf. again :)
 That's this thing where one stores frewood for the fireplace. I hope it's more or less unterstandable :)
And the whole set:

Furnished roomboxes

My roomboxes are fully furnished and ready for filling with tiny details. Here they are:

 Can you tell what is it on the fireplace? Or is it no use to go in such tiny details? :)

a sneak peek into work in progress

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments, I appreciate them so much :)   Here's where I'm at with my Xmas roomboxes. Their base is 20x20 mm, height of the one with stone fireplace is 18 mm, the other's - 20mm
My husband ordered me some wood (I believe it's called veneer?) from ebay and I'm so happy with it - it offers much more genuine look of the furniture and flooring. 
Today I've painted some watercolors that you can see on the walls. They make them look much more cozy:)

1st Xmas roombox

Hi there!
It has been a month since my last post here.. wow, time flies fast!
There's not much going on in my life lately: my elder daughter started to attend pre-school so we are head to tails busy with that. My baby-girl is growing very well, the clothes for 6 month-old is already too small, and she's only three :)
I have finished my 1st christmas roombox! It came out just fine. I didn't make any in-process photos to save some time, so please do check the final result:
 The roombox measures 25 x 25 x 40 mm.
 the christmas tree. there's wood in the basket near the fireplace, three candles, cup with hot chocolate (may be :)) and cane-candys
 tea-table with the bottle in ice and piece of cake on the plate. I didn't succeed in making a spoon though :) the basis of the armchairs is 4x4 mm, so that you could imagine the size of everything else.
 1st floor: mirror on the wall, coat on the hanger, umbrella and phone on the side-table. On the table above there is PC: the flatscreen, keyboard and mouse (with wires!)
 overall view once again. And below is a bookshelf with books, boxes, paper and pencils, folded blanket, and a tiny dollhouse as a sign of respect to our hobby :)))

Also I wanted to share a photo of us from our friend's wedding in July. It turned out surprisingly well, with my handsome husband and Eseniya's tiny legs. She's almost 1 month old here:
Best  wishes to all my readers! I love to see your comments :)

the outside of the 1st micro is finished!

Hi everyone!
I've managed to finish all my "hanging" projects by now! Finally! I plan to start the set of New Year micro-roomboxes, because I think of trying to sell them here, in Russia, as a first step ;)
By the way, I would greatly appreciate your help: I'm quite confused with what price shall I ask for these houses... Here, on russian auctions I haven't seen 144th scale at all... And I can't evaluate my creations properly. Yes, they are OOAK, but I'm only a beginner and i use the simplest materials... If you, dear followers, would tell me which price appears suitable to you for this finished project, I'd be just happy :)
And now the photos, so that you could see it in details (remember, the size of the house is approx. 35x32x23mm):
