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!

Happy New Year 2013!

I would like to wish everyone the very best for the year ahead. 
These are some of the things I have been doing over the last couple of months, in between moving and settling in to the new place. It is my first attempt at re-upholstery and I need lots more practice! I haven't finished with the chair yet but thought I would show it. I have enjoyed making over the armoires. And as you can see I have been playing with effects in Photoshop. 

The first of February will mark three years of blogging and I think it calls for another giveaway. I will give some thought as to what I might offer, over the next few days. See you all in the New Year!

A bientot!

    I love how you have upholstered the chair, the fabric is lovely and the effect you have used just adds to the look. The amouires are lovely too, the grey is a very nice choice.
