The messages below came through the blog site recently, so I thought I’d post them separately so you wouldn’t miss them.

2. has back issues of Nutshell News to donate.

Please contact the above people, as I have no further information.

Yes, soon I will have another posting about our houses–the summer is running away with me.



About smallhousepress

In 1974, my husband Noel and I began building aged miniature houses for collectors and museums. We were 70's dropouts. We quit our careers in advertising--art director and writer, respectively--and escaped Los Angeles in a VW camper and a Bug for a simpler life on the coast of Washington State. From a tiny studio in our home, we built 64 houses and buildings. Our specialty was aging--making a structure that reflected the scars and wrinkles of time, the elements, and human habitation. In the 80s we began teaching our techniques in workshops around the country, and I began to write our how-to's in Nutshell News and Miniature Collector. In 2000 we migrated across the Columbia to Astoria, OR, where , in 2011, we retired from miniatures. We are Fellows of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans and taught at their annual school in Castine, ME. By avocation I am a writer and poet. The blog is my way of working back into a writing routine, as well as recording what we did, and what we learned along the way.

  1. Hey Pat, somehow I fell off your site, and didn’t know it. Hopefully now will again receive news of your postings, because I love them. So, just saying howdy from in here. c

  2. The other reason may be because I haven’t posted anything recently–it’s been a busy time. I do need to set a better schedule for writing, but those intentions get blocked by the cacaphonous weeds.
