SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DOLLHOUSE MINIATURES SHOW 2011 and OTHER

We finally made it home after attending Tom Bishop's Southern California Dollhouse Miniatures show in Anaheim. What a great show it was! It was my first show I attended as a dealer and I am very satisfied with the results, and experience, and fun we had. I met so many wonderful and great people among the dealers and customers. The show itself was very professionally organized that I have no doubts: I will attend it as a dealer again.
One of the great people I have met is a very talented young English lady, Caroline by name.
You can find her work on her blog:

and on Facebook:

She also has an Etsy store where she sells her wonderful minis:

It was my pleasure to meet a very friendly, helpful and talented Jackie Caron, a dollmaker
and her dolls
Aren't they beautiful?

I was fascinated with the oil paintings by Gilbert Mena. Unfortunately he doesn't have a website and I didn't take too good picture to see his artwork closer.
I also met Sandra Davis who used to do petit point and she made those little bears that you can see on her palm

back side

I also met a nice lady Debbie from Dragonfly International company for the first time, though I have been her on-line customer for ever.

We arrived to Anaheim 2 days before the show started and spent those 2 days guess where? You are correct, at Disneyland. It was our second time in Disneyland with the difference that this time we had the possibility to visit California Adventure park as well. I still can't believe that I was sold on to try the House of Terror where an elevator drops down and goes up and then goes down again. I am really tooo old for that kind of rides.
but I liked the interior design of that old hotel a lot
The Soundsational Parade in Disneyland park was fabulous as always with all characters, and costumes, and music
