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!

New Goodies

Oh for a macro lense, unfortunately I cannot properly show these tiny delights to best advantage.
Bought from fellow etsy sellers, the first to arrive was the gorgeous basket of pears, shown on the washstand above. They are unbelievable, some of the pears are sliced in half to show the seeds; plus the teeny box of Turkish delight on the sideboard at the top, along with a pretty gjftbox, all from Rita at Petite Pantry.

And the darling shoes, shown in front of the sideboard in the first photo, together with the prettiest box, are from Silvia at SilviaSanz. They are so beautifully finished, now I just need a mini bedroom to place them in.

I have noticed some new followers, a warm welcome. I am afraid I have been spending much of my spare time working on items for my etsy store and haven't been present here a lot, although I do keep up with all your posts. I cannot imagine how I ever managed before blogging!
Hope everyone is having fun,
A bientot!

And Back to the Light

I am still exploring kit-making and this is my latest. It was quite complicated to put together but I really like it now, painted, or rather white-washed so the wood still shows through a little. After lots of rubbing with extra fine sandpaper it feels sooo smooth.
It's now listed in my etsy shop, go and have a look, there are more photos posted.
Whew, I was worried about what would happen when Google Reader disappeared, but nothing has changed for me so far, fingers crossed!
Back to orders.
A bientot!
