Yesterday I had the great honor of spending the afternoon with a new blogging friend. Mimi is in town for the NIADA conference and I was thrilled we were able to get together. I met her at her hotel and was greeted by these darling creatures...
Breathtaking!! I have been in awe of Mimi's dolls since I first discovered her site, so seeing them live like this was just amazing for me. Her artistry, creativity and attention to detail astounds me. Then she brought out her postcards.
Beautifully stitched fabric with wonderful details. Mimi shared the history of the fabric she used, much of which came from her mother. Oh decisions, decisions!!
I was finally able to decide on these two postcards.
Just can't wait to get them framed. It was tougher to decide on a doll, but in the end the sweet fairy came home to live with us.
See more pictures of her here.
We went for lunch and visited a few cool shops before the the heat finally got to us and we stopped for ice cream.
Peach for Mimi, coffee (always) for me.
It was so wonderful to talk with this new friend! To share our blogging experiences and to hear tips and details of her work. This was such a great meeting for me and I wish we could have chatted forever but the distractions of a two year old made that a bit of a challenge. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon Mimi! And thanks to this great community that brought two new friends into my life this month that I would never have had the opportunity to know otherwise.
