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!

Shelf unit

This is the bedroom set so far, the shelf unit was originally going to be an armoire, however I didn't like the way the doors were fitting so decided to leave it as it is. I will try another armoire, changing the dimensions slightly to fit the doors. I just need to add a little trim to the bottom shelf to neaten it. I would love to make a small bedroom chair to match too. Sorry to bore you with all this furniture making, but I really enjoy putting it together. I will build myself a bed the same so I can use the set somewhere in the future.
Welcome to all new followers, I will enjoy visiting your sites too, hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
A bientot!


  1. Your furniture looks beautiful! Love the way the shelves turned out.

  2. Your furnitures are really fantastic. Reminds me of Marie Antoinettes boudoir... Wish you a nice weekend.

  3. Margaret, great result!
    In fact, the shelf has a more attractive because you can expose many things...
    I love it :-)

  4. It looks really beautiful Margaret. I'm not normally not so fond of 'sets' but I love the way that all 3 of these pieces seem to enhance each other.

  5. The set is looking fabulous!
    And you're not boring us, I enjoy reading the updates on the set! :D

  8. It's great without doors just as it is Margaret.

  9. Furniture making is by no means boring! I am really enjoying reading your updates and I love your French style. :~)

    Totally unrelated I noticed that you had commented on Catherine's blog about workings for grandfather clocks. James Parker used to sell them (according to an old dollshouse mag acquired recently) but when ever I try go to his site I am denied permission. I was wondering if he could be contacted through Dolls House and Miniature Scene?

  10. Wonderful pieces. Congratulations. Best wishes

  11. Te está quedando un conjunto pecioso.
