"Southern Lights" - Lexington Exhibit

The Lexington Horse Park "Southern Lights" holiday event begins this weekend and I had the opportunity to help the members of the Bluegrass Miniature Society set up their exhibit. The one 1:12 inch miniature which I found fascinating was this beautiful Chocolate Fantasy Table. I am going to find out more about this project as is amazing.
The event includes over 150 light displays - a driving tour thru this beautiful park. Once one finishes driving- the main museums are open to visitors may view the " toy trains"- I have never seen such a large toy train exhibit-the dollhouse/miniature exhibit, visit with Santa, a petting zoo, food, gift shoppe and much more.
I am still busy completing the last of the Santas for my upcoming Virginia events and it is time to get prepared for our holiday visitors.

Night Before Christmas Book Box

I tried to keep it simple as this "Book Box" is going to a show in Virginia in a few weeks.

Rain and more rain- but it has been so needed here in this part of Kentucky..
I attended my Bluegrass Miniature Society meeting Sunday and we are getting ready to set up an exhibit of miniatures at the Southern Lights event to be held over the holiday season at the famous Kentucky Horse Park.
Recently, I attended the steering committee for the national convention to be held next year ( NAME) in Indianapolis. I just found out that one of the ladies I met- her grandfather was the founder of the "Cracker Jacks" company, can you imagine owning every cracker jack prize ( especially when they were really toys), no wonder she is a miniaturist!

So my Christmas is just limited to my studio, deliveries to stores begin in 2 weeks and I am off to Virginia for a show or maybe two...

Noah tomorrow

This is the last Santa for a few days as I want to begin on my "Noah". I finished up a series of St. Nicholas pins to add to the line for the Virginia show.
One of my santas on Etsy is a featured item in the "Nick of Time" series.
