It has been a long time since I have written a post...and for this I apologize. Life gets so busy sometimes and one forgets how meaningful life's little pleasures are when they are put aside for the time being. Many things have happened in the months since I had last posted. I do not like to write about my personal life too much, and so I shy away from posting sometimes.
In November I was given the wonderful opportunity to spend 10 days in Spain; 3 days in Madrid at the Tom Bishop Miniature Show where I met many of the wonderful miniature artisans who I have admired for so long and many who I am fortunate to call my friends. I then went on to spend 5 days in Barcelona, 2 of those days spent touring Barcelona with Eva Perendreu and meeting a few wonderful miniature artisans from the Barcelona area over coffee (including Ivana Paez and Jorgelina Ferreyra from Argentina).

In the months following Christmas the pipes froze out at my childhood home and my sister and I spent many weeks there repairing damages. I typically spend every Monday afternoon there year round with my 2 dogs; this is the place that my store is named for - Windy Point. There was much snow there this winter.
I have been designing new pieces to add to many of my Luxury Flatware lines and creating new miniatures for Spring. I hope to have these listed soon, but things keep getting in the way it seems.
Finally, as many of you know, many of my miniatures are modeled after the things that were in both of my grandmother's kitchens. I have been working on my maternal grandmother's summer kitchen over the past year...I have included a few photos so that you can see the progress. The farmhouse photo is the actual farmstead that my grandparents had and where I spent weeks during my childhood summers.
