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!

A Tardy Welcome
I have been a little slow in welcoming all my new followers, now there are too many to go through. So happy to see you all here and wish you all good luck if you enter the giveaway draw. The lovely chandelier above is a project I would love to tackle as my metalwork skills improve. Wouldn't it look great in a French rustic mini setting? Electrified too, have to think how I could do it. Perhaps for a 200 followers giveaway?
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!
