Today, I had time to notice that my rose bushes are blooming, my gladiolas are about 12 inches above ground, my day lilies are growing so fast , peonies are days away from blooming and the iris are gorgeous. With geraniums to be planted, sunflower seeds to be sown and dusty miller plans eager to be planted I thought..

Many of you know I am the ' Estate Lady" for NAME along with Cary Yerves "The Estate Man". Yesterday , I realized something, I am a semester away from earning a Bachelor's degree in Miniaturing. After 10 years of reading, researching, putting together a massive library of resource materials, I am entering my last semester! Because of my NAME work with miniatures and estates and vintage, I have created a new blog page " Everything in the World of Miniatures is New Again" and am presently working on a virtual newsletter and in time a virtual magazine. The new blog site can be found at
http://eoinaminiatures.blogspot.com/ . Become a follower , a member, as I am going to need miniaturists help to get me through this last semester. It is my passion as many of you know, to never allow a miniature or a dollhouse or room box end up in the " cemetery" better known as trash/garbage bin/destroyed. I must finds home for those beloved pieces, the need new homes.
