At the Show - Exhibits

This week's exhibits are by Moonyeen Moller, Foster City, in San Mateo, CA. Photos are courtesy of Connie Sauve.

Mr. Peepers Book Nook was exhibited at the 2008 Good Sam Show. It holds about 2,000 books handmade by Moonyeen. The box is an experiment in "fool the eye" as the box was built about an inch larger in the front than the back. It was designed this way so that all of the book spines would show. The dolls are by Sharon Cariola, Dolls Mine Miniatures, San Diego, CA. http://stores.ebay.com/doll-mine-miniatures.

Sam's Place is a news stand owned by Sam the Man. It was exhibited at the 2007 Good Sam Show. In addition to the newspapers, Moonyeen made the 240 different magazines on display.
