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!

Pretty in Pink



As a diversion from working on my faux wood finishes I put together this cute Chrysnbon chair kit. I originally gave it a very shabby greyish paint finish then on a whim, decided to go for pink. It is still very shabby of course, like a RL farm find perhaps. I felt impelled to surround it with all things pink and even gave my large white candelabra a pink wash, which I like for the moment. It does look large against the chair but I styled in on a tall pair I have which tower above our heads when sitting at the table. I will add some sparkly crystal drops and candles to finish it off properly.
The gorgeous poppies are by Michelle of Little Rabbit Miniatures and I received them in a swap back in 2010. I just love them they are so perfect. You wouldn't believe how long I sweated over tying that silk ribbon around the pot to make it fit the 'pink' theme! Until next time.
A bientot!
