A World of Storybook Charm • Robt Charles Heitmann

ROBERT CHARLES HEITMANN……. creator of dioramas…….based on fairy tales.  30 of his creations were donated to HOUSING WORKS thrift shop.  I purchased 4 of them and displayed them in my apartment  for Christmas.  All of my guests [me too] have been mesmerized by their charm.
