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!

Recovering from blog burnout.

After spending over a month familiarising myself with the workings of 'the blog', and losing track of the hours while browsing through blog after blog and seeing so much fantastic 'stuff', I needed to take a break and try to get something done myself.

Having returned to my blog I am thrilled to welcome six new followers: A big hello to Karin, Sonia, My Realitty, Kate, Ana and lastly, The Brocantess. I also have lots of your postings to pour over as I don't want to miss anything.

Well I haven't done a lot of miniaturising this week as work had to take precedence. However I did make my way to a great little miniatures store in Sydney, name Small Pleasures, where I bought a kit and put together a dear little bed. I have a photo of my first creation, and although it was made from really quality wood I couldn't resist painting it. Once I have the look I want I'll post the photos. Unfortunately it looks way too large for the little room upstairs in my petit parterre that I had planned to make into the bedroom. I do have an idea for a small vignette that I would like to create around it though and can't wait to start.

Until next time,

Au revoire (Is that how it's spelled, forgotten my French!)


  1. Hey Margaret, nice to see you back but boy I sure can relate to the hours and hours one can spend 'blog-hopping'!!

    I don't know the store Small Pleasures, where is it??

  2. Hi Norma,
    Just worked out how to reply to comments! Small Pleasures is a small shop at Carlingford, where I lived a few years ago. It's attached to the owner's home and only open on Saturdays. It's nice to see things sometimes before you buy. I think my bed kit was one of the last unfortunately, but there are lots of goodies to be found.


Thanks for visiting, I would love to hear what you think ...
