Miniatures rooms















We had friends over from America who bought us this wonderful book!! On the way to Finland they stopped by Chicago and visited the Art Institute of Chicago. Each year thousands of visitors come to see the sixty-eight magnificent lighted boxes.

Here are some pictures of the beautiful rooms:





























I wish I had taken more pictures of the book but my fingers were so shaking that I just had to start reading!! :)

Hi Laura, we loved visiting you all last week. Here is the website to the museum collection:

I want to remind you that the book has stories about how a lot of things in the room were made, and some of the techniques you could learn to do for yourself.

Let's meet there some time, I'll take you to see them.

Love, David and Marley
