part 3.......CAROL HARDY items





Well, I am continuing to share some of the wonderful items that I bought at an Estate sale. I found a plastic tub in the back room with all of the miniatures and this is what was inside of it. Seven sleighs made by Carol Hardy(IGMA).(one was giifted to my friend Annemarie Kiwikkel for her exquisite dolls) They are signed and dated. Her work is stunning!!! She made these in the early 80's. There was also a popcorn machine and a older male vendor who was made by Sylvia Lyons. There are two small sleighs for children in the group. I hope I am not boring you with all of these postings about the dream sale that I was lucky enough to go to!! I still can't believe what was sold there!!  I could continue posting photos for about 4 months....LOL

  11. Carol did lovely work and what a great teacher she was, she inspired many women and men to pick up their tools and make things. I still find myself reading her published projects whenever I come across them in old magazines.

    Now you shall need a little carriage house in a snowy setting for your sleigh collection!
