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!

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.


  1. Good luck with your Etsy sales. I think the pieces you made are wonderful!

    Your dog is beautiful what a sweet look he has.

    1. Thanks Catherine, and yes he is a beautiful boy, getting old now, 12 years, and he is quite spoilt, he knows how to get what he wants.

  2. Margaret, as I came back to explain to you, I realized that the colour described was pink and not peach. As you explained, it's probably my computer. I think your work is exquisite! You have already sold one couch and I'm sure this one will go quickly as it is gorgeous! All your pieces are quite lovely!

    1. Hi Lucille, That's OK, just thought people might think the background fabric was the same in different photos but showing up as a totally different colour, thought I should clarify that.:D

  3. The leather chair has just arrived - it's going to be so perfect for Eduard Culat but until he gets his own premises it'll have to go into the Brocante. The cushions are lovely, the fabric is so fine on the little one, feels like silk, and of course I'm totally in love with the mirror! Thank you so much!!!!

  4. What a lovely, cute dog you have! And thanks for being so considerate about the colours in the pictures on your etsyshop.


Thanks for visiting, I would love to hear what you think ...
