A diary of my intrepid first steps into the world of miniatures.

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!

And the Winners are:
I managed to print out all the followers who left a comment on my Giveaway post to be in the draw. All the entries were cut out and folded, then the first draw would be for the candelabra which was the most popular choice, the second draw was for the fruit. My little doll that I made several years ago (still wearing a crochet dress that is way to big for her, but she doesn't know it) was excited about the whole thing.
I'm please to announce the winner of the candelabra is Karin at: http://minitutesfromorrlake.blogspot.com
The winner of the fruit display is Daisy at: http://antiquedaisy.blogspot.com
Please contact me with your postal details and Karin, let me know if you'd like me to remove the spikes and put mini candles on the candelabra (though I have yet to make some, hope they work).
Thanks to everyone who left their comment, if you didn't win, perhaps the 200th follower giveaway won't be too far off.
I bought this gorgeous shop, photo below, at a Sydney miniatures fair about six years ago and want to personalise it. Have decided on a flower/plant shop with a French theme, hence the name, Petit Parterre. Am currently experimenting with flooring and wallpaper but haven't come up with anything very pleasing so far. I might be in for the long haul with this. Always looking for inspiration though!
