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!

First Reincarnation

Had some fun with paint this morning, the birdhouse is suddenly covered in some type of fungal growth from being outside in damp conditions for many years, how time flies. Not to mention bird droppings, well what would you expect!

The desk has simply a light wash of greyish white over it and rubbed off a little but I think I will be doing more to it later. I removed the tiny drawer handles and I may replace them with crystal ones perhaps ...


  1. Me encanta como te ha quedado la pajarera, parece vieja y muy usada.

  2. I just wrote a comment and just write another urgent: if the desk already and Birdhouse were beautiful before, now plendide!

  3. what a change ! I love the bird house with this new look. And the desk is great too.

  4. Thank you all, now that I look again at the birdhouse I am thinking perhaps I went too far. I'll look again tomorrow, might like it better.

  5. I love the bird house

  6. The table is stunning -- soft and lovely. I think the birdhouse is grand, but it's your opinion that matters. One of the great things about seeing our work in photographs is that we can be a little more dispassionate about assessing how effective our work has been :)

  7. I love the finish on the birdhouse and the table looks really nice, I think that chrystal knobs would look really fab :)


  8. la mesa es preciosa, estoy deseando ver como la acabas. La pajarera genial, realmente parece muy usada.
