back from Chicago
what I bought at the shows part two

what I bought at the shows part one

I came home from the Bishop Show and the Three Blind Mice Show with some wonderful pieces....


All of the above from D-Tales Miniatures.


Squirrel by Leslie Frick, and rabbit by Weazilla.  The unfinished table didn't have a store name on the receipt.


Fishbowl by Miyuki Kobayashi


Look at that little face!  I named him Scruffy.  He was made by Marie W. Evans.


Boxer shorts by Lucy Iducovich....don't remember where I picked up the other items.


Wright Guide Miniatures always has good stuff.


Dome from Grapevine Miniatures, the rest from a store with no name on the receipt.


Bananas by Orsolya Skulteti, pottery by Jane Graber.  The porcelain house was an estate sale piece, I don't know who the artist is.

Update - Blondie solved the mystery, the artist is Sylvia Mobley.

At the Three Blind Mice show there was a grab bag of minis that I picked up, then put down again, which Lynn then picked up and bought.  I met Lynn in the lobby of our hotel and she kindly let me ride over to the show with her.  We hit it off and chatted the whole time. 

Lynn from Cleveland, if you see this, please email me....there were some little porcelain trees in that grab bag that are a match to this house and I'd love to buy them from you.

You always find the best stuff. I'd love to have some of that cat pottery. And one of those fish bowls. Wow.


Scruffy! That face! He stood out among all those adorable animals - I'm so glad you took him home.

Weazilla - yum - her entire table!!
Everything you bought is wonderful. And I "get it" about the fishbowls now. So realistic!
As are those bananas.

I want to go back already!


Already?!? LOL


Well, I can't afford to go back already - I still have to pay off my loan shark.
But yes, already!


The Ann Arbor 3 blind mice show is in 2 weeks. I know it doesn't compare to Chicago, but I am getting excited after seeing everyone's loot!
I love the black squirrel!!


OMG D-Tales miniatures... the detail on that clock and the tiny cathedral radio! Gorgeous!


I have a real black squirrel outside my window as we speak named Black Sparky. :)

OMG fantastic job with your finds!!!!!!!!!!!!! Susan, I'm ready. Pick me up in Iowa. Haha!! It's all divine. :) :) :) :)


Beautiful items! But the d-tales miniatures steal my heart! Holy smokes...the details!
