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!

Celebration of Spring
It is the first day of Spring here so I thought it fitting I show my beautiful display of flowers the Shop gardener has been tending all through winter. Some of them have bloomed early!! Flowers were part of the garden swap, posted earlier, with Sylvia's jug taking pride of place on the weathered desk, alongside one of my candelabras.
Welcome to all new visitors to the site and thank you all for your comments, I really appreciate them and read them all. Will give an update on the prize deadline soon hopefully!
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!
