At the Show - More Animals and Birds

This week's blog brings you more Good Sam artisans who create some 1:12 scale miniatures, with a theme celebrating animals or birds. The focus this week is on nature, wildlife, and household pets.

In addition to original 1:12 scale porcelain dolls, IGMA Fellow Sylvia Mobley sculpts cats, dogs, wildlife figures and more. She has been making miniatures for 34 years, and has been a dealer at Good Sam for the last five years. http://www.sylviamobley.com/, sylviamobley.blogspot.com
