More on the Dutch Canal house display at Museum
I was Googling around this evening and found this on the Newsletter from the NAME club, Mt. Vernon Miniatures Club...how wonderful of you to include this in your very informative and interesting newsletter. Thank you to Laurie Sisson!

The Mt. Vernon Miniatures Club had a lovely out to visit Cookie Ziemba in April at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC where her Dutch Canal House was being exhibited. We met Cookie at her exhibit in the museum and spent the morning with her asking questions about her house, then touring the Dutch exhibit at the museum, including a lovely musical presentation and a hands-on stamping project. Cookie's house was reproduced as one of the stamps and she was presented with a set of them as a gift from the museum. The house had its own guard while the museum was open! Impressive.
I included a photo from Cookie of the crated house. The museum went down to Florida and crated the house. Cookie came to DC to set it back up for display. What our museums do for us. Gotta love 'em.
