Miniatures in Italy

It’s been a while since my last Post.  Here are a few updates:  I have not started work on the Denise Cottage Kit. I have only pre-built(no glue) it and tried a few modifications…it’s not going well as I would like. I think I am subconsciously sabotaging my ideas. I don’t know, hopefully things will work out.  I recently went on vacation to Sorrento, Italy. It was just stunningly beautiful. I did all the things I wanted to do except tour Pompeii, so I will have to go back for that.  The food was amazing. I enjoyed every meal. It was a much needed escape from my norm, with rest and relaxation. While touring the Amalfi Coast, driving towards Postiano, there is a miniature version of the town Praiano. A local artist built the miniature clay structures along the cliffs just like in real life.  I can’t tell you how excited I was to see miniatures. Since I started this hobby all things in small scale fascinate me. I guess because I can really appreciate the time, effort, and passion put into making something small. I will share some pictures…Enjoy!
