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!

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!


  1. Margaret, the dressing table looks beautiful, I can feel the smooth surface. :))) Whose kit is it, if you don't mind. Mini hugs, Natalia

  2. Your dressing table is very beautiful Margaret.

  3. Natalia, I bought the kits from a local miniaturist, they are no longer being made and not online, sorry.
    Thanks Valentina and Susan, I appreciate you stopping by and leaving feedback.

  4. Je toilettafel is prachtig geworden. Wat een mooie kit.

    Groeten Xandra

  5. Hello Margaret,
    The vanity is beautiful! It looks very well assembled and the paint finish is just wonderful. excellent work.
    Big hug,

  6. Margaret, Google reader has disappeared but not Google dashboard. I realized after I had switched to Bloglovin that I had never used Google reader. So, I am continuing with the dashboard because I prefer it to Bloglovin. Your dresser is breathtaking! I was going through my stash this morning and I came upon this dresser which I had painted white. It's part of the bedroom kit from Greenleaf furniture kits. I love that dresser. To me, it's worth the price of the whole kit. This furniture looks cheap but with a bit of imagination, it can be spruced up.

  7. Great work and a truly beautiful finish on this vanity, Margaret! It looks like it might be Edwardian, is it?


  8. El mueble es precioso!! un abrazo, Arantza.

  9. It's a very interesting design, and the finish is lovely.

  10. Hi Margret,

    I have just been looking through your Etsy site and the work you are doing is just beautiful. So inspirational, I just adore the cradle with the antique lace....exquisite!
