So this is what happens when you go to a conference for work…you spend the next week trying to catch up on everything you missed while you were gone. Which means I’ve been neglecting the house for the past two weeks.

On the other hand, I did go last weekend to the Philadelphia Miniaturia, which is the largest dollhouse miniatures show on the east coast…and what an amazing set of vendors there. Artisans of the finest quality abounded. I even got to meet several I had bought from online. What fun.

I got a good supply of tiny-patterned cloth and lace for the curtains downstairs, some old sheet music, a couple of laser-cut doilies, and a frame for the picture in the nursery.

Also a little basket for the pantry, and a glazed, fired pot from the woman who made the tiny butter churn in my kitchen.

And the most fabulous little metal-cast giraffe for the nursery. And a tiny Spode plate depicting the Castel Sant’Angello in Rome.

Funny thing about this plate is that I own a life-sized copy as well.

So I had to get it.

Finally was able to put the nursery print in a frame…

…and place a tiny piece of wood in back so it will hang at a slight angle.

And here you go.  I’ll get back to work on the pantry later.

For now, good night.
