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!

Summer Fruit

Not much work to do today so I decided to make something. I'd been looking at the packet of Sculpy I bought at a doll show a couple of years ago. A lump of it has been sitting on the coffee table for longer than I care to admit to. I sculpted a couple of odd faces a while back then left the blob sitting there. Then I thought of something I could try – fruit!

This is my first attempt so they aren't perfect. When my partner came home from work I told him I'd made a nice platter of fruit – cruel aren't I. But he thought they were quite good. They will be good for a mini kitchen I might have in the future.

What do you think? You can be honest.


  1. Honestly, it looks pretty darn good to me!

  2. Hi will find that bloggers are always honest, some times unfortunately!

    I adore your fruit and am so surprised to read that this is a 'first attempt'! They look fantast!!!!

    Regards, Linda

  3. Thanks girls for your kind words. Linda I enjoyed working with bread dough a number of years ago. In fact I sold some of my items at markets, including Salamanca - maybe we crossed paths. I'm talking 20 years though!

  4. I think you did a great job, very much like the real thing, some look like marzipan.

  5. Whaow Margaret, This fruit looks wonderful. I can imagine it piled into a beautiful platter in the centre of a kitchen table. Super job!! Carol :) x

  6. The fruits are looking delicious,can't believe that it is your first attempt.So keep up the good work ;-)!Jeannette

  7. It's so hard to believe that it is your first attempt at making fruit - you have done a wonderful job of these and they look truly realistic. Well done! Sandie
