The A Frame Price: $4,595 
My fiancé introduced me to the “Nort Woods” of Wisconsin (Wisconsinites drop the “h”) several years ago. He had built an A frame log home about 30 years ago and since relocating to Florida, it is now his summer home. It is set in the Nicolet National Forest on Butternut Lake. This project is a Pam original design from the start. Each log has been sized and cut by hand to fit. Both trees and each fallen leaf are cut and created by hand. The foliage used here was actually taken from the Nicolet and from Butternut. The critters include those I’ve witnessed while vacationing at one time or another. The backdrop is an actual photo of his driveway leading up to the house. A true vacation get away.

Boca Tires, Inc., Goodyear Price: $1,995 
To Dad with love….My father’s business for over 35 years. He brought Goodyear to Boca Raton, Florida in 1971. With four daughters and his wife, you say his work was his hobby. Having no other gift ideas for my Dad, and his closet full of shirts and ties, I made this for him Father’s Day, June 2003. Sadly, my father passed away December 2008. This item is not available for purchase but can be recreated to your specifications.

The Relax Inn (Florida Room) SOLD 
Heaven forbid if Barbara from the Dollhouse Corner here in downtown Delray Beach ever retires. She’s the only miniature shop here in our tri county area. The next nearest one I am familiar with and love to visit is Ron’s Miniatures of Orlando, Florida. You can’t just drop in for one item. You’ll go and spend hours sifting, sorting and playing. Literally, you’re in your own little world (no pun intended). Well, Ron is also famous for his workshops. He teaches several each year not only at his shop, also at shows all over the area. This Florida Room is a Ron project. He teaches techniques while building the shell. Then, we let our imaginations take over for the décor and finishing touches. My favorites are the screened windows, a must in Florida! Come and stay at the Relax Inn.

The Stage Price: $1095 
Front and Center, with love to my son, Christopher. Another Ron project, although mine is quite different from the mass since I built and added the orchestra pit. My oldest son, Christopher is a musician, graduating this spring from FSU with a degree in Music Education. At the age of 12 Chris picked up his grandfather’s saxophone and said “Mom, this is what I want to do”. And, that he’s done ever since. He loves performing and has since middle school. Most recently, he has been performing in the Tallahassee area and has plans to come home this summer, back to Delray, to teach. Items backstage are a reflection of my son as “the performer”. For example; before a performance he will eat a banana and drink a coke, to coat his larynx before playing his horn (who would’ve thought?) This item is not available for purchase but can be recreated to your specifications.

This is the home I decorate for the holidays. It sits on a zero clearance turn table for ease in handling. Someday I will pass this down should one of my sons give me a granddaughter.

Post Office and General Store SOLD 
This is one of my more recent pieces finished September 2008. It all started with two items and a box. The rusty mop bucket and dirty mop which I had found at a show earlier that year. I don’t know the artist’s name that created this, but for the price I paid I couldn’t have made one like it. An honest sale and a steal all in one! Once home, I rummaged through my own collection of minis, realizing every step of the way that anything and everything goes into a General store. I also found the unfinished letter holder which I had bought from a fellow club member. A unique piece, unsure how I would use it, till now! Hence the Post Office and General Store. Countless hours later, I get the inside all buttoned up, but the outside just looks like a box. So, now I’m mounting the whole project on a platform, creating the sidewalk, personalizing the street lamp, creating the stairwell and bus stop…..I even have the barrels and checkers out front. Look real close and you’ll see the old Guy’s stogie, (another Pam original). All I need now are two old guys! So you see the project is never really finished. The imagination won’t allow that.

The Teak Library SOLD 
can be personally recreated
I met this couple at the Delray Affair. Super nice people, very genuine. The husband loves to "find himself" when looking at the miniature scenes. He asked about a teak library, but we only discussed this briefly. A couple of weeks after the Affair, his wife called me as her husband would be celebrating a BIG birthday early June and after several emails and phone conversations I was able to come up with Stu's Teak Library. Thru questioning I learned of places they loved to visit, their habits, pets, favorite everything ... even the 4 pair of reading glasses left around, as Stuart is famous for that. The library is electrified and even has a working time piece on the back wall.

Reading Room w/ Red Chair SOLD 
This is a custom piece. I met a woman locally who fell in love with the red easy chair, originally set in the Relax Inn. After chatting awhile I learned she was an avid reader and she wanted a Reading Room or Library where she could fall into her red easy chair with a good murder mystery. Pieces like the red easy chair are sometimes hard to find, thereby, I recreated her Library from the Relax Inn, customizing every detail to my customer's desire.

Ernest Hemingway's Writing Studio from his Key West Home  
The famous writer Ernest Hemingway, was also a cat-lover. He admired their spirit and independence. As the story has been told, a sea faring captain had given a special six toed (polydactyl) cat to Ernest Hemingway, and from that cat, the legends of Hemingway's cats have grown.

Today, approximately 60 cats make their home in and around the HEMINGWAY HOME & WRITING STUDIO MUSEUM. These cats are so well known that the nick name "Hemingway Cats” has been given to describe polydactyls. They wander throughout the museum house and grounds and are taken care of by the staff and a full time vet. They ignore the tourists and pretty much prefer to just cat nap where ever they can find a cool quiet spot to sleep.

How many cats can you find?

Teacup #1 SOLD
While my work was on exhibit at the Cornell, I met several people...one of many who LOVED our miniatures. In speaking with her at greater length, her space to display such an item was limited. The following exhibit was "Stuff II", which encompassed peoples' collections. She happens to collect antique teacups. I mentioned a scene could be set inside one of her teacups. Again, learning much about her and her Mum...with their Birthdays right around the corner....these were made. Just about any scene can be set inside a teacup, be it one you cherish or one I supply.

Teacup #2 SOLD
This teacup was created as a birthday gift to my friend's mother. The scene emerged in two ways. The teacup itself was floral and dainty in nature. Her mother also loves the beauty and serenity of nature. Just about any scene can be set inside a teacup. Indoor settings, outdoor settings or a complete homefront. I can utilize a cherished teacup you own or supply one of mine, making this a most cherished gift.

I build to scale as you will see. I favor one inch, which means one inch in miniature equals one foot in reality, it’s the most popular. Then there’s half inch, which is more portable as one half inch in miniature equals one foot in reality. And finally, I can say I’ve also done quarter inch, which can be quite frustrating as one quarter inch in miniature equals one foot in reality. But, the finished product of any scale is always very satisfying. I truly love creating and building something out of nothing. For example, the drink holders you get at McDonald’s can make great stepping stones. All you need is a scissor, a little dry brush paint and your imagination.

I have built from kits, from plans and from my own design. I enjoy making each scene look real. I have built privately for families either replicating a home they grew up in or renewing that old dollhouse in the attic for their young niece or granddaughter. For the holidays I have also built new and decorated to spec for families. I would love to build something for you. Please feel free to contact me.


I wanted a dollhouse since I was a little girl. I love all forms of art and truly enjoy working with my hands. My mom called me her “dabbler” as I would flit from one project to the next without a second thought. In college, I studied business and finance but used art and architecture as my electives. On my 32nd birthday my mom took me into the Dollhouse Corner here in downtown Delray Beach. We met and talked with Dick and Barbara Fales, picked out my first dollhouse “kit”…and the rest is history!

Dick and Barbara Fales have owned and operated the Dollhouse Corner here in Delray Beach for probably 30 years. My first house was called a Queen Anne’s Farmhouse (a kit), a nine room two story house with a wrap around porch. I was so excited to get started! So excited, I built it backwards (It was a right handed instruction and I am left handed). So…before moving forward I was already building the “addition” to correct my artistic error. On the upside, I’m glad I learned this early on, as it is most always a costly fix. This nine room house was only the beginning. I love every facet of building which includes designing, creating, and even electrifying in some cases. I also love learning and teaching new techniques. I thoroughly enjoy making each scene look “real”. I hope you enjoy my website and my pieces as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
