It’s a small world for Macungie resident

At C. Leslie Smith, Shops of Cedar Point, Allentown, this month’s artist on display creates with neither a brush nor a pencil, but with miniatures, creating doll houses and other decorative displays.

Nadenia Butko, 87, of Macungie, first found her love for creating miniatures in 1990 after needing a hobby following the death of her husband.

The couple had moved to the Lehigh Valley from New Jersey the year before.

“I was in an unfamiliar place with few local friends, and creating miniatures became a new hobby for me, even an obsession,” Butko said.
