Can you believe...?







Can you believe that my mother has never seen my doll house....yes, it is true! She has of course seen many photos of it, but has never seen it in the flesh...so to speak. My mother is elderly and lives many hours drive from me, but I finally convinced her to visit us this Christmas. We had a lovely time, she spent a week here with us and we occupied most of one afternoon looking at the "Petite Maison" and my miniature collection. She was amazed at the many wonderful items I have collected from all around the world and I loved telling her about the lovely miniaturists that I have had the pleasure to meet and those that I still long to meet. She could not believe how clever you all are!!! There are far too many favorite items that she loved to mention each artist, but rest assured I told her all about each of you.
She loved my house and was totally blown away when I turned on the lights.....she kept saying, "I don't know where you get your patience from Linda".....looking back I wonder the same thing!
I have included a few photos of some new purchases...isn't the detail on the little night dress so sweet and the adorable little bowl of cherries was made by the wonderfully talented Teresa Martinez. Enjoy x

How exciting to see a new post from you about miniatures. If someone had just shown me the pictures of all your beautiful new pieces, I would have known exactly who they belonged to. You have your own style that is unmistakable. No one could ever copy it!

I can only imagine how much your mother loved seeing your beautiful house and everything you have collected inside it. :-)) What fun you must have had showing it to her.
