Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you like my new look, I needed a change from black. Here you can share my miniature endeavours, perhaps be inspired by some of my photographs taken in France and of 'real world' treasures that can be made in miniature. My love of parterre-style gardens and study of horticulture made my decision for the theme of my little shop an easy one. I just hope I can successfully interpret my ideas in 1/12th scale!

I've been trying to add a google translate gadget to my blog but can't figure it out. Anyone out there who can stear me in the right direction?

I'm thrilled to welcome new followers, Muriel, Victoria, Coby, Chadina and Glenda, I'll be following your posts too. I'll have to think of a giveaway when I reach 50 followers, but don't think my skills in miniatures are at a level where I could inflict them on anyone - except my sister who received some of my first mini fruit!!

Must put the thinking cap on. I've added some more photos from my last trip to France and one from Dusseldorf, hope you like them. The first is a wonderful old church in Dusseldorf; the second is you-know-who's house in Giverny, lovely garden; the third a house in Paris, it looks like it's out in the country and it was all locked up as evidently the Parisians desert the city in summer when all the tourists swarm there; and lastly the vision I got home to, my precious Ollie had torn something to shreds in his excitement at seeing me after three weeks away. He's looking a little older now - aren't we all.
A bientot!


  1. Hi Margaret!

    I added a translate widget to my blog. If I can do it anyone can.

    I am off to have a good look around here. Thank you for stopping by kilmouskiandme and the kind comments!

  2. Hi Margaret,

    Thanks for the welcome and following my post as well. Should be easy to do the google translate, not sure exactly where the problem is but try copy & pasting the code under layout->"add gadget" on the right side bar. Then choose html code/javascript. Hope that helps.

    Also we are always the worst judge of our works. I say just put it out there you never know! I love your fruit.


  3. Thanks to everyone's help I've solved the problem now, it's good to get all your comments.
    xx Margaret
