MINI DECTECTIVES NEEDED !!!

THIS MINI PICTURE BY TERESA LAYMAN HAS BEEN STOLEN


 
RECENTLY A FELLOW MINIATURIST AND DEALER TERESA LAYMAN HAD THIS PICTURE STOLEN FROM HER TABLE AT THE GUILD SHOW IN NEW YORK.   WHEN I READ ABOUT IT  I IMMEDIATELY FELT HER PAIN.  IN MY  DEALER DAYS  ITEMS CAME UP MISSING AND I KNEW WHO TOOK THEM, BUT THEY ARE PEOPLE WITHOUT A CONSCIOUS.   THE DRIVE TO HAVE SOMETHING OVERSHADOWS  THE BRAIN THINKING PROCESSES AND  THEY JUSTIFY THAT IT IS OK.  NEVER, NEVER, IS IT OK.
 
GRANTED  THIS PICTURE IS SMALL 1"  X 2.5" IN A FRAME.    84CT SILK GAUZE PETIT POINT.  IT ALSO COST $700.00.  HAVE YOU EVER DID PETIT POINT THAT SMALL.  THINK ABOUT ALL THE TIME SHE PUT INTO THAT LITTLE ITEM.  A PART OF YOU ALSO GOES INTO EACH PIECE , WHAT YOUR THINKING ABOUT AT THE TIME, WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE AT THAT  MOMENT.  THE ONLY REWARD AT THE END IS THE FINISHED PIECE , THE ADMIRATION OF FELLOW MINIATURISTS, AND IF POSSIBLE SOMEONE TO COME ALONG AND PURCHASE YOUR TIME AND TALENT.  TO HAVE SOMEONE COME ALONG AND STEAL SOMETHING IS REALLY A VIOLATION OF TRUST IN OUR FELLOW MINIATURISTS.  IT MAKES US NOT KNOW WHO WE CAN TRUST.
 
I PRAY AND TRULY HOPE THAT THE PERSON WHO DID THIS WILL LOOK INTO THEIR HEART AND SEE THE DAMAGE THEY HAVE DONE, NOT ONLY TO THE MAKER OF THIS, BUT TO THE FAITH IN MANKIND IN GENERAL.
 
WHAT CAN WE DO AS MINIATURISTS?  DO NOT PURCHASE THIS IF YOU SEE IT BEING SOLD ONLINE OR AT A SHOW OR SALE UNLESS IT IS TERESA LAYMAN HERSELF. 
 
HUMAN BEINGS DO NOT COME WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON BEHAVIOR, THEY HAVE TO BE TAUGHT.  SOME PEOPLE JUST LOOSE THEIR WAY OR WERE NEVER TAUGHT TO BEGIN WITH.  REACHING OUT IN LOVE IS SOMETIMES ALL WE CAN DO,   PRAY ABOUT IT, AND LET GOD DO THE REST.   THIS IS A SMALL ITEM, BUT IT IS A BIG DEAL, ALSO THE PRICE TAG  MAKES IT A FELONY OFFENSE AS WELL.

  1. Hi Karen! What a shame that all that hard work was lost by theft! Even if it was $ 7 instead of$700, stealing is stealing and wrong is wrong. If people would live by the Golden Rule of Doing unto others what they would like to have done to them" then perhaps they would think seriously about how it would feel if the situation was reversed. If they would not want to have someone steal from them, then don't steal from others.
