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!

Coaches, Saddles & Brass Beds
I thought you might enjoy shots from they Sydney Miniatures Fair, of this stand by Robert & Linda Prentice. Their work is simply amazing. Fabulous old coaches and wagons were on display, the oh-so-realistic saddle caught my eye and I would love to have bought it, even though I don't have a mini horse for it, but my budget was fairly restricted so a photo had to suffice.
They also made beautiful brass beds, mattresses etc.Great work.
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!
