SIMP....2012



 Wow!!! Firstly, where to begin??? It was such a wonderful exciting day, meeting so many extraordinary miniaturists.....seeing (and buying) lots of lovely miniatures....I had a great day!!!!
The above photos are of the work of Mylene Martin  (click name to visit website)....her work is beyond belief. I had no ideas of taking any photos, but I just had to take these. I have Mylene's very kind permission to show these on my blog....the photos (which are always a challenge to take at a show) do not do justice to Mylene's wonderful and totally captivating work....visit her web-site and be prepared to be amazed!!
I met many from blogland and recieved such lovely reviews regarding my blog....thank you so very much. I met Peiwen (she is so sweet), Pascale, Genevieve & Lea (all of whom I had met on precious occassions), I saw the lovely art work of Catherine and chatted with Marie-Laure, plus a very quick last minute chance meeting with Marlies...(thanks to her husband). It was a thrill to be at SIMP again....it was a wonderful day!
This is a photo I snapped at Pascale's stall....yes, I bought the kits so that I can make these....who could resist!
p.s....had a fabulous 2 days in Paris with Rosanna and her lovely cousin Alessia, I was hoping to have today as a rest day but the "sales" started here in Paris today....I can always rest another day...lol!!!

Wow!
What a divine little cafe and superbly detailed work. You have done a wonderful job of capturing the details and the Pascal's flower pots are gorgeous.

It sounds like you have had a wonderful time meeting up with friends and I hope you have a ball at the sales, I'm very envious!

Sounds like a dream holiday Linda, great photos, and meeting up with all those talented mini buddies. You may need to buy extra suitcases to bring all your goodies home!
