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!

Turning to the Dark Side
But not in 'that' way, I have been experimenting with some darker pieces of furniture and I really like the look, what do you think? At least they would suit some rooms. I have almost finished this dresser, another of the kits I have. It is a dark, midnight blue with some distressing. I haven't put anything in the doors yet - glass or wire - I cannot decide. And I think it needs metal handles, antique style, to lift it a little. I just placed a few bits and pieces on the shelves to see what it would look like filled. I would love your opinions.
A big welcome to all new followers and visitors, I certainly enjoy seeing what everyone is doing, even if I don't always comment.
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!
