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!

Part of my Giveaway!

I know it has been ages since I announced my 200 followers giveaway and asked everyone to be patient while I honed my technique for the electrified chandelier and hinted at a second choice. Well the photo I showed was an antique doll's bed that I wanted to try and make as a mini. Finally I am near to finishing that part of the giveaway. Naturally I have given it an aged look, that's what I love. It took a while to work out how I could do it and I just made it up as I went along.
Some steps along the way below.

It still isn't finished, I will put some feet on it and make a couple of little cushions, maybe think of something else to finish it off. But I wanted to show that I am true to my word and at least part of the giveaway is almost ready. Still waiting on some parts for the other half so I"ll have to ask you to be patient a little longer before the draw.
New followers are still free to enter, as I mentioned the first drawn of the first 200 followers will have first choice of which prize they prefer, the next drawn of all followers will receive the other prize. Will keep you posted. I think this will be a combined 200 and 300 followers giveaway!
A bientot!
