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!

Be My Valentine . . .

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have been making lots of cushions lately, some of the antique aubusson print ones are on the Australian miner's couch I made from a kit, then today I got in the mood for making some little heart cushions and a swag.

The corner cupboard on the right at the rear is a secondhand piece I bought really cheaply and painted and I just love it. I will show more of my cushions in another post.

Welcome to all new and 'old' followers, hope you all aren't eating too many chockies.D


  1. Happy Valentines Day Margaret! OXOXOX

  5. Dear Margaret, Happy Valentine's Day to you too.
    I love all your new things, and especially the look of the armchair of the previous post: you have finished it in the meantime? I find it beautiful, and since I'm exercising to make sofas and armchairs, I am very curious to see the work of others :-)
    I embrace you with love, it is always a pleasure to come in Petite Parterre.
