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!

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.
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!
