Lots of News from the Big World and the Small

I know that things have been quiet around here lately. Lots of things have been happening. I graduated from Sarah Lawrence College on May 18th. That's my younger brother and I under the tent. I was also introduced to a classmate's grandmother, only to discover that she is an IGMA Fellow who I had seen at a few miniature events but never talked with! It really is a small world!

Mom and I are also planning to have a table at the Sturbridge Miniature show this weekend! We've been pricing and packing like mad women for the last few days. This is only our third show, and it's much bigger than the ones we've done in the past, so it's all a bit nerve wracking. If you happen to be at Sturbridge as well, please come by and say hello!

In the mean time, here's a sneak preview of a few things we're bringing.
Some rustic painted furniture...
and some that isn't rustic...

 a few other things I painted, like this sign...

and watercolour paintings...

lots of  things made from paper, like this account book...

and these valentines...

We're bringing things for attics...

and playrooms...

and dressing tables...

 and a few things I made just for the fun of it...

I'll try to do another quick post  before we leave, but if I don't have time, I'll give you the full scoop on Monday or Tuesday. Hope we see you at Sturbridge!
