Just miles away is Neen! Her blog is Universe in Miniature and you can see it here http://universe-in-miniature.blogspot.com/ We emailed and then she came over to visit my Tynietoy House, and well, me...
The funny thing is in my haste to make my Assistant's due date I forgot to pack Colette, my mini me.
Fortunately Neen brought hers, Ethel Mertz of I love Lucy fame!
Here she is entering the Tynietoy House.
Ethel was served tea by Mrs Kestner and the Grandmother of the Tynietoy house and they marveled over her modern garb.
In fact Ethel got along swimmingly with Mr. Tynietoy much to Grandmother's alarm.
But just then to round out the party a friend of Ethel's appeared to attend to Mrs. Kestner so she didn't mind a bit.
And it just goes to show what fun you can have with new mini friends! I did.
Neen said what I often hear from other mini folks, how nice it is to talk to someone who doesn't roll their eyes when you start talking
"dollhouse", whose eyes don't glaze over when you go into detail about it and who understands their Schoenhut from their Strombecker... She is my new BFF and I invited her to San Francisco sometime to meet the gang out there.
Really I like this "right" coast. And I mean that, Virgina is purple...
in this election year. CM
