Miniaturist Bridge News – January 26, 2020

It’s the last weekend in January – Hallelujah.

Don’t get me wrong – winter in Wisconsin does have its moments. For example yesterday morning I awoke to what was probably the most beautiful snow of the year. It simply frosted the landscape outside of my window, making me feel like I had just stepped into a snowglobe. And there’s nothing better to do on lazy snowy Saturdays than curl up with a good mini project, or spend an hour or two enjoying my Facebook mini groups and Instagram feeds. You know how that goes… you look at one post, which leads to another, and another, and oh! Have to click that profile…what? The artisan has a website? Wow…check out THOSE photos! And before you know it….the morning is gone, leaving a dizzy, creative, awe-inspiring miniature glow in it’s place.

It’s impossible to show you everything, but I will continue to try. And I’d love your help – if you know of any events, destinations, videos, books, or other media that you’d like to share on Miniaturist Bridge, please let me know! In the meantime, here is a brief highlight of some of our postings this week – enjoy!

I am grateful for this community and for the world of miniatures. On the Facebook page World of Dollhouses and Miniatures, a question was posed this week about why we love miniatures. The responses resonated with me, and really touched me.

There are so many deeply personal and wonderful things that we connect to and love about miniatures. I have gotten so much joy, comfort, and connection from this hobby since I was a child. I love this community – it’s an honor to be a part of it.

Sending BIG hugs from my TINY corner of the world!
