Texas Tiny specializes in unique Texas-themed 1:12 scale miniatures. Cowboy and Cowgirl miniatures, American-Indian, Hispanic Mexican and general Western categories are continually being added to with new items such as miniature cowhide chairs and rugs, Texas landscape paintings, Talavera style tile fireplaces, ponds, and tabletops miniature dollhouse piñatas, and more. Although the culture of the Southwest is broad, Texas Tiny celebrates the vibrancy and myth particularly associated with the state of Texas in its miniature scenes.
I will be attending the Society of American Miniaturists Weekend Workshop in Temple, Texas the weekend of September 17-20. Orders will be filled as placed when I return next week. If you live in Texas I highly recommend the SAM organization. More information can be found at minisam.org
Cowboy & Cowgirl Western Miniatures:
Texas' cattle and oil baron mystique is represented in unique "Cattle Baron" cowhide miniature chairs and hand-skived cowhide rugs. Acrylic Texas landscape paintings or limited edition prints complement Bespaq furnishings. Mounted longhorns, miniature horseshoe furnishings and bronze Western accents finish the scene. Saddles, saddle bags, guns & holsters, chaps, vests and cowboy & cowgirl hats are available in a variety of styles and finishes. Ranchware plates and serving utensils are essential to the well-stocked bunkhouse. Cowboy campy and western cinema items include John Wayne plates and vintage miniature Cowboy movie posters.
San Antonio Hispanic Mexican Miniatures:
Hand-drawn Talavera-style tiles adorn miniature fireplaces, ponds and table sets. From the Texas Tiny studios come miniature crosses, retablos (folk-style religious paintings), Oaxacan-style sculptures, processional Ojo de Dios, Dias de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) miniatures, Mexican paper flowers, miniature pinatas and polos which are complemented by Mexican and Guatemalan imports including blankets, ollas (pots), and wall founts.
American Indian Miniatures:
Drums and hide paintings, miniature deerskin dresses, warrior breastplates, bows and arrows, ceremonial pipes and hatchets are selections in this category. Affordable American Indian blankets will be joined by artisan-made blankets in traditional patterns. Contemporary American Indian images decorate plates and other dollhouse accessories.
Plated Tex-Mex food and Mexican imports are supplemented with new creations including Dulces (sweets) and Pan Dulces and are available on trays, in baskets and individually. An ever-expanding inventory of miniature Texas produce crates are in stock and can be custom ordered to feature your favorite Texas locale. These produce crates can be filled with traditional Texas (southern) produce and work with typical Texas pantry staples.
Potted cactus creations, orchids and typical Mexican flowers compliment exterior and interior settings. Faux bois (Fake Wood) garden creations typically seen in the San Antonio area are interesting focal points as are the Talavera-style garden constructions.
