Yesterday was my birthday and I decided I wanted to go to the miniature and quilt shows that were in town this weekend.
The miniature show turned out to be rather small but there was still plenty to see and wish one could come home with!
My mom and I shared a love of dollhouses and miniatures (as well as so many other things!) and we used to go together to shows many years ago. It was such fun to see two names I remember from long ago on the program.
But the most fun of all was I found a third miniature artist, Jane Graber, whose work my mom had bought some for each of us about 25 years ago! She turned out to be so darling and sweet, so delightful.
The redware and the doggie shelf above were all made by this same artist and then her friend, who accompanied her to the show, made the one basket on the left and another friend of theirs made the trug on the right. She also had wonderful cabinets and hutches made by other artisans and I am kicking myself for not buying one in particular. WAH!
You may see more of Jane Graber's charming work here, on her family's website.
I was so thrilled to come home with these little charmers, which are my new favorite things and I can't wait until next years show!
