A Fond Farewell from the Keeper of the Blog

On New Year's Eve 2011, we introduced the Good Sam Show Blog. My son Michael Puff, the show photographer, designed the Blog. And, I have had the pleasure of maintaining it with weekly posts almost continuously since its inception.

At this time, I am retiring as the keeper of the Blog. At age 83, my goal is to spend more time in my garden.

It has been an amazing four years--working with so many talented and supportive miniature artists. Many thanks to all of you--our devoted Blog followers--for making it such a joyous adventure.

And remember--find your passion, and live it!
Martha Puff, Keeper of the Good Sam Blog

McTavish Toy Shoppe & Fairy Garden created by Martha Puff and son Michael Puff.

The Blog will remain here for your enjoyment. Please join us on Facebook.
