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!

The Clock is ticking ...
Tomorrow is the big miniatures Fair in Sydney and I will meet up with Sydneysider Norma of 'Make Mine Mini' and fellow Tassie girl Linda of 'Une Petit Folie'. Hopefully I will be able to take some nice shots of trading tables.
Also, I am thrilled to welcome so many new followers, now past the 100 and heading for the 200. I'll be working hard on my technique so I can offer the promised chandelier as a prize to my first 200 followers. Stay tuned for some good pics next week and have a lovely weekend everyone.
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!
