Treasures from Chicago

Back from www.theminiatureshow in Chicago.
 We had a wonderful time meeting up with other Miniature Artists and Miniature enthusiasts.  I wanted to show the wonderful miniature treasures that I acquired in Chicago.
 This is a wonderful paper folder from Leger. I love the detail that my new camera can pick up. There work is unsurpassed in quality. I consider myself lucky to have some of there pieces. They are lovely people and such a pleasure to deal with.

 2 blue vases, I think I will put these in my Jane Austen inspired room.
 Valerie Casson 
I always love meeting up with Valerie at the show. She is the sweetest person and such a talented artist. I am astounded at the work Valerie makes. The ceramics are so lovely and detailed. 
 I love this french duck pitcher
 The teapot books are so whimsical, I felt drawn to this little piece. The lovely planter is a gift from Valerie, she is so sweet.
 The lovely flower display is by Christina O'Neill.  Cea's Garden Miniatures. I have been next to Christina each year at the show. She is such a fantastic artist and person. She gifted this too me and I feel very blessed to have such lovely friends in all parts of the world. 
 Always fantastic is Art of Mini. 
I love there kits and look forward to putting them together. Janny and her husband are so nice, what a talented artist she is.
Love this little doll, it is the first one I have purchased for my collection. Made by Ethel Hicks. She was not at the show and was thus represented by Swan House Miniatures.

Though I did not get very much this year, I am very pleased with my little treasures. 

Have a fantastic day!
