At the Show - Exhibits

This week's exhibit is from the 2007 Good Sam Show. Michael Puff took a workshop from Rik Pierce, Frogmorton Studios, to build the Three Bears Cottage. Michael made the structure into "McTavish Toy Shoppe and Fairy Garden." He also incorporated a Fairy Garden. For landscaping, he bought  florals from fine artisans at the Good Sam Show or used kits. His mother, Martha Puff, furnished the interior with her collection of miniature toys. The structure is now part of the Kaye Browning Miniature Collection at the Kentucky Gateway Museum. To see more of Rik Pierce's designs, go to http://www.frogmorton.comhttp://community.webshots.com/user/rikpierce.
