On the wall in Elaine's kitchen there is a cabinet which houses a wonderful miniature dollhouse. The cabinet was built years ago by her husband Alan, and carefully furnished by Elaine. Since the first time I saw this house I have felt like a small child, peering into a little world, every time I visit. Many items in the house were purchased and many details made by Elaine herself.
Here's a view of the entire interior.
And, of course, there must be a sewing room...
and an artist's studio!
Every wall in Elaine's home showcases the varied artworks of the talented members of her family - paintings, serigraphs, pastels, art quilts... too many to name. We shared our recent work, talked about common interests in paper and fabric art, laughed and ate out!
All in all, a creative visit with a dear friend!
