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!

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.
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!
