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!

Our Day at the Fair

Well, we had a great day at the Sydney Miniatures fair, met Norma, Linda and her friend Jo, had a lovely chat and a few laughs, it was so good to talk to them in person.
There was much to see and so many gorgeous things, I bought just a few goodies that I will photograph tomorrow and show you.
The first photograph is from a local miniatures group, Alice in Wonderland. Following are a few shots of the trading tables. The roombox is by Adelaide Cann, for display only, not for sale; little dresses made from antique lace by Tasmanian miniaturist Helen Davies of Launceston, my home town; next shot is also from a Launceston miniaturist, I don't seem to have her details at the moment; the Jacobean, or is it Tudor, furniture was really good quality and the gentleman, whose card I cannot locate, also had some great houses that I will post tomorrow; the last trader had some great pot plants etc, but she only sells at fairs and doesn't have a website. I bought some nice muddy gunboots from her for the owner of the Petit Parterre.

  5. Looks like you had some wonderful things to see and buy and so nice that you managed to catch up with some blogging friends.

  6. Oh! I love the Tudor furniture, and the little topiaries -- too cute!

  7. Yes the fair was great and it was fun to meet Norma and Linda and Jo. The Tudor/Jacobean houses and furniture and odds and ends would look really great in a castle or similar too. Think you can just see some of the prices, pretty good I think, especially with the exchange rates for overseas buyers. I can find out the contact details if anyone is interested.

  8. All beautiful. Sigh! I would have wanted to be...

  9. Thank you Margaret for sharing these photos, so many temptations to buy, you must had lots of fun,

  10. Wonderful things :) I love the greenery and the greenhouse in the last picture and the rustic furniture, so fab!

    And the green room is so nice, lovely details.



Thanks for visiting, I would love to hear what you think ...
