Sandy's studio in spring, and a NY Times interview

In February I posted this Christmas time photo of this gorgeous little place in the Catskills, NY, USA that is the feature of Sandy Foster's blog My Shabby Streamside Studio - a 1:1 dollhouse if ever I saw one :)

The New York Times has just published a feature on Sandy and the studio at

There are great photos of how the studio looks in the spring, as well as an inspiring interview with Sandy, a woman committed to following her heart no matter the obstacles that I admire greatly on every level. Take a few moments to check out the article and her blog, I guarantee you'll be inspired too :)

Oh yeah, and the challenge is still out there - which miniaturist is going to be the first to mini Sandy's studio?????

That is totally charming. What a great little get away spot.
I love up state NY. I spent all my summers there growing up. It is still the only place I feel that I am home when I am there.

I've been following Sandy's blog for some time, having fallen in love with her little place.
The only place I'd want to miniaturize it is in my backyard to use as a potting shed cum ???.

I saw that! Isn't that tiny little place remarkable?

Carol said...

Wow, what a fantastic project to do in miniature! Of course, I wouldn't mind having it in real life too. Thank you for sharing!

Norma said...

Glad to know you all love Sandy's studio as much as I do :) I would sure like to have one in my yard too - minus the winter snows and freezing temperature tho!

Rosanna - it's on my to-do list but I fear I shall grow too old before I get to it ;)
