The Miniaturist

I am reading  "The Miniaturist" by Jessie Burton. The story takes place in the 1600's in Amsterdam. Our heroine, Nella, recieves a "Baby House". Adventures, griefs, and severe church rulings against dolls, mimicing Popery beset her. I recommend it to anyone especially if you have a penchant for things small.

The RijksMusum, Amsterdam
                   Contains the Baby House of Petronella Oortman this book is developed from.


                                                   Here are three rooms from her baby House

                     You can see more by googling: Images Petronella Oortman's dollhouse.

  I love Historical Fiction. The story this house created is marvelous. And let me add how glad I am to be a woman in this century... we have so much more power, Even if they try to remove our choice in anything, once you have been freed, you never go back.


This is a painting of Sara Rothe and Family who has several baby houses in Dutch Musuems
one Museum in Holland that holds one called "Sara Rothe's Display" is at the Frans Hals Musem in Haalem, the Netherlands.

New Mexico, United States

Naomi Kamiya's The Doll's House Gallery Opening

Gallery Opening

 Naomi Kamiya surrounded by art and patrons today in Berkeley.
 
 
This showed you were at the right place
 
 
Even Dudes and their skateboards liked it.
Immediate installation upon entering.
 


                  Work on the wall from Cal Berkeley Students

 Well attended. Wine, strawberries, lemonade and brownies were offered. Yum.

 


              Naomi is so much fun to talk to and has so many ideas.
 
And  out on Solano Avenue just a little exhibit to show you where the gallery entrance is. There are many more events planned on Solano Avenue. It's a really cool place to hang out. See http://Leftcoastmini.blogspot.com/ for more details. Don't you agree galleries and dollhouses are a great match? CM
