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!

Nothing new - yet!

I have been enjoying working on some new items but they're not quite finished. While looking through my pics I found this group shot that I think is quite nice, showing my settees, one of the little chairs that sort of go with them, a little outdoor table (that I haven't shown before so there is something new), and my made-over cupboard in the background. I quite enjoy styling the photos, but usually miss something (like the plates that should be standing up). I really  feel inspired to create a room with some of these items, we'll see.

I hope everyone is having a good week. The weather here has been just about perfect, sunny days, not too hot, hope it lasts a while longer.
A bientot!

Item descriptions

My beautiful golden-haired boy!

Hi everyone, Just thought I would clarify a query in regard to colour descriptions for my etsy items.

I do use different coloured fabrics in the background  when I take photos, and the last shot of the settee has a deep apricot fabric at the rear, quite different to the pinks shown in some of the other shots.

However I have described the fabric covering the seat as pink and grey, which is correct, and I do everything possible to show each item as it appears in real life. I don't want anyone buying an item and expecting something completely different, as has been the experience of some bloggers lately.

Of course if your computer is not colour calibrated you will not be seeing photos at the right shade anyway but the variation should not be great.

The Hamptons sofa

Just a quick post, thought you might like to see my latest sofa listed on etsy. I love this sofa, or daybed, and this particular one really reminds of 'the Hamptons' style. The kit is no longer being made so I must remember to keep one for myself. I would love one in real life but for now I am happy with the mini version. The little chair is also made from a limited-edition kit and I have two which I will be listing tomorrow, they go beautifully with the sofa.
Hope you are all having a great week.
A bientot!
