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!

That's me, I have been spending so much time making things (or probably mostly thinking about making things) for my etsy store I have been neglecting my blog. Although I do manage to 'lose' an inordinate amount of time somewhere (reading all your blog posts).
This is my latest item, a rather pretty, shabby dresser. I am having quite a time coming up with different little pieces that hopefully others will like too.
I welcome all new followers and visitors to my blog and invite you to visit my store to see some of my other 'stuff'. Hope your are all having a lovely autumn (here, downunder) or spring (up there).
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!
