I wanted to share about a new exhibit we saw yesterday at The North Carolina Arboretum. Miniature folk art houses! And churches, ferris wheels, school houses, light houses, covered bridges, and carousels. Everything made between 1890 and 1950. And everything in miniature! Maia was in love. We all were.

The exhibit is called Building Small: American Folk Art Houses and Structures and is being displayed at the Arboretum until January 3rd. If you live in the Asheville area, you need to go!

These folk art houses are from the collection of Steven Burke and Randy Campbell, the largest such collection in the country. According to the exhibit attendant this is the first (and probably only) time this collection will be exhibited. So again, go see it.

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving!
