I'm wanting to do a variety on tiny gardens, but to start, I'd like to do a faery garden scene tucked in an old wood section I have under shade trees.
I have seen many different scale sizes, but don't know what is the most ideal for finding things & accessories. Would it be the 'tiny' scale?

I find my gnomes or fairies first and go accordingly. What I need for the gnomes is larger than what buy for fairies.

most dollhouse stuff is 12:1 or 12 inches equals one foot. There are other scales, but this is sort of the standard, and it goes larger and smaller, from there..

1:24 is very tiny...

Most of the fairy and gnome stuff I've seen for sale is larger than the 12:1 size, so if I buy dollhouse stuff, they are too big for it...

I stick with 12:1 because there is the most variety of stuff available in that size, but that is just me
