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!

Mini Wreath etc ...


Well I had to try a mini version of the paper wreath, the first was rather gigantic, the second more in scale. The paper was not so good so it isn't perfect but I can live with it. I found these old mirrors in a Brocante, don't you just love old mirrors. What images may they have reflected, what faces might have peered into them. Well only mine so far, they are quite age-worn but I think they have some real character.
A bientot!

  2. I wondered whether or not you'd be able to resist trying a mini version of the paper wreath - hope your fingers faired better this time!

    The mirrors are great - are you going to shabby them?

  7. Thank you everyone for your comments, I still have the remains of one huge blister on the side of my middle finger, from the hot wax. If you decide to make one, be extra careful!

  8. Oh, Norma, no I won't shabby these, will leave them in their original 'state of disrepair' I think. May fit into some scene in the future.

  9. I can see better now 'in the light of day', and wide awake, that the frames are elegantly aged as they are, and I see too that you've done the distressing on the mirror itself again. I really like that effect.
