I came back from Miniaturitalia Sunday in the night, as much exhausted as happy! That's a photo of my table I took Saturday, first the start of the fair (the exhibitor was behind the camera ^__^).
I was missing from the fair for two years and the return has been affecting. To see again so much friend and great miniaturists: Marina by La Casetta di Panpepato (with her lovely, sweet christmas-and-not only works), Giovanna by Sotto il Nespolo (great vet and great miniaturist... she cure animals, sculpt animals and draw animals!), Roberta by Le Miniature di Eurosia (sunny friend of flying and many fairs, with her exclusive tuscany ceramic), Patrizia Santi with her wonderful mini shoes, Manuela Michieli with her delightful mini cakes, Elena by Idee da un Mondo di Favola (a dear friend with whom I shared a wonderful edition of Paris Création!), the adorable Mika from Japan and... too much people to mention, but not too much to be all in my heart.
I knew new talented people too, as Andrea Tomaselli, Marina's brother (they had the tables table mine), who create wonderful veenered furnitures. I was very happy to know Kristiina Meiner, with her original dolls! Unfortunately I didn't have helpers, so I can't see the fair as I liked. The point of view of the fair is almost the same of my fairies: from the table! I'd like to see the Silvia Cucchi's beautiful works, and many others, but I missed it even if in the same room!
Many people asked me why I wasn't in the ooak section, in the other room: it's because I'm so attached to Michelangelo's Room! I have been in this room since the first Miniaturitalia edition, in the 2004, there are memories and love... moreover, I'm routine like a cat! ^__^
Before to go to finish to put in order bags and ideas, I would to say a big thanks to Sabrina and her staff, for the incredible work that they always make for Miniaturitalia!
