This pizza establishment probably gets more customers looking to use the restroom than order a pizza. If you have no idea what I am talking about then take a good look at the logo. My Mr. and I had a good laugh over this design--which I'll admit was my poor idea. It seemed all good until I realized the "letter A" in the word Pizza tends to get lost. Outlining the pizza slice probably would have solved the problem, but I decided to leave it like this for my own amusement. I don't take myself too seriously, man.
What I do take seriously is the kinship we have in the community of modern miniature enthusiasts. Over the years, we have grown into a very supportive group of hobbyists who share ideas and resources. I've met so many great people who share this interest. It's a very collaborative community that encourages and inspires.
Unfortunately--and for quite some time, I've been receiving some mean-spirited emails and commentary from a few folks who want to horribly bash my fellow modern dollhouse bloggers or accuse them of stealing ideas or this or that from my blog. I thought these kinds of communications were at the worst when the NY Times article ran last year. And I thought these communications would end with the passing of the NY Times article. Sadly, these kinds of notes are still being sent my way and one was recently sent to a blogger friend. I wanted to make it known that I will not entertain nor respond to communications that take malicious aim at my fellow bloggers, collectors and enthusiasts. Frankly, I don't find it flattering to be complimented by someone who simultaneously insults other people enjoying this hobby. It's amazing the kind of craziness that people will try to bring to the table--no matter what the subject matter. So, in short:
Spiteful few = Stop your insanity.
Modern miniature blogger hommies = Ignore the spiteful few, continue to do your thing and keep pushing this modern hobby into the spotlight.
Hmm...In retrospect, this tangent might have painted modern miniature collectors in cult colors...Well, I promise we aren't shoveling out random dates that predict the end of the world. However, we might be predicting the end of a market inundated with Victorian and Tudor dollhouses...
