What's pink this week?
* My Tudor Tea Shoppe uses soft shades of pink. I have a few small photos up on my website's miniature Teapot Shoppe page. (click images for larger photo).
* My Victorian sitting room is pink also. The curtains and ceiling light are hand-beaded. The ceiling (not shown) has small framed art surrounded by strings of "pearls."
* This lovely lady sitting at a table with pink decorations is also from my Teapot Shoppe. Of course, she's reading a replica copy of my real-life kid's mystery, Searching for a Starry Night, A Miniature Art Mystery from Quake.
(** See yesterday's post about the new ebook at Barnes & Noble.com for a great contest!!)
The "real" book, for ages 9+ (adults too!) features friends Sam, and her bff, Lita, who along with a mischievous Dachshund named Petey, face an angry housekeeper, a dog-hating gardener, and an ancient family curse as they search for a missing miniature replica of Van Gogh's famous painting, "Starry Night." (Plus they encounter some fabulous miniatures, many from my own collection! I welcome more readers, so be sure to get your copy!)
The miniature book (which I had made for me, see link to Lee Ann's books below) includes chapter one from the real-life book. (You can read or download the actual chapter of Searching for a Starry Night here. )
* So just a few scenes I hope you've enjoyed! Please stop by my website or come back to the blog anytime. If you read my book, I'd love to hear your comments!
