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!

Sydney Miniatures Fair here I come!
Cannot wait to go to the fair this weekend, I hope to find some tiny treasures. I will try to take some pics to show you and maybe catch up with some other mini makers.
This photo shows my last dressing table, which has since had ANOTHER, makeover, I will show it soon, with the matching bed. Then I will list it in my etsy shop, with a couple of other new items.
The 'leather' chairs have been quite popular, this is a bunch that were almost ready to go to their new homes around the world. It is wonderful to think that my items have found homes far and wide.
Welcome new followers and visitors, I appreciate all your comments and try to comment on your posts when I can.
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!
