My Treasures from Chicago International..........

And what a wonderful show it was.  Meeting up with so many talented people and just having a great time all around.  And now I will show some of the treasures I found there:

Hall Console Table by Ferd Sobol

Shoes by Valeria Bonomi

Settee by Mark Murphy

Chairs by Mark Murphy

A gift from the lovely Mary Grady O'Brien

Smoker's valet with two pipes by Linda Master

Table by Michael Reynolds

Silver Cake Stand by Greg Matusovsky

Baskets by Brandaen Jones


All these pieces are ear-marked to be placed in Indiana Jones' house (a work in progress for the last many, many, many years!  Maybe this year I will get a chance to do some work on it.  Sigh!!

A week after I got home, I was at the Sydney miniatures show and that was another great weekend.  My shopping there was very subdued this year, but I will share my purchases:

Porcelain by Margaret Crosswell of Tasmania

  8. Lovely finds from the show. I suggest in the future that you turn off the macro mode when you take photos. The rectent digital cameras have very high resolution so that means the macro setting enlarges every tiny bit of dirt, dust, fuzz etc. The other disadvantage of macro is you don't get much in the way of depth of field focus. Instead of using macro just stand back from the object enough inches so that the auto focus can work. Then afterwards use a photo editing program to crop the image you caputured so that it shows only the details you want visible. The result will be very natural looking photos with good detail.
