I am drawn like a moth to a flame to certain miniaturists and here are but a few. The fabulous little folding...(yes, folding!!..) French bistro chair is made by French miniaturist Catherine Soubzmaigne. Most of you may recognize the beautiful white pottery by Elisabeth Causeret (it is so fine and delicate), she also made the blue cup & saucer, while the box of French sweets is from 'Paris Miniatures'.
I bought the lovely hat from Lea Frisoni, it is so sweet and even features a hat pin. The gorgeous (fixed) display that you see on the seat was a gift from Lea, I was so excited when she handed it to me....a beautiful little souvenir of my time in Paris.
Peiwen made the amazing 'open tins' of food.....I soooo love these, plus I also bought her book, what a delight that it!! I might never make anything from the book, but I enjoy seeing the process that goes into make such delights.
Lastly, a selection of pots. I'm not sure of the maker of the round pots but the embossed planters are from 'Le miniature de Eurosia'. I hope to fill several of these with 'ariculas' (kits) that I also bought from Pascale Garnier.
.....sorry it took so long to do 'show & tell'....! I have only one regret and that is that I won't be at SIMP next year!!!!
