A diary of my intrepid first steps into the world of miniatures.

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
I bought this gorgeous shop, photo below, at a Sydney miniatures fair about six years ago and want to personalise it. Have decided on a flower/plant shop with a French theme, hence the name, Petit Parterre. Am currently experimenting with flooring and wallpaper but haven't come up with anything very pleasing so far. I might be in for the long haul with this. Always looking for inspiration though!
