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!

  6. Thanks everyone, it gives me a buzz to have little things arriving in the mail,as they say, good things come in small packages.

  7. Hello Margaret,
    What wonderful purchases. they are all lovely, but I must say the basket just blows me away. Wonderful.
    Big hug,

  8. Estos muebles maravillosos me encantan, y los accesorios preciosos, sin palabras, tienen algo especial.

  9. Hi Margret,

    Some beautiful additions to your collection, the basket with the pears is divine and all those pretty shopping bags makes me want to get started on the master bedroom at AP.
    It really does make life busy trying to make time for miniatures and blogging, its so much fun though.

  10. My dear Margaret, first of all I take this opportunity to congratulate for the success of your store: you have a really refined style, which I love :-)
    It 's normal that at the beginning, it does bsorb all the creative energies, but I can tell you from experience that, in the long run, you feel a little empty, there arises the need to return to create only for themselves, for the pleasure of doing something pleasant, and not for gain.
    Since last April, I can not publish a post on my blog! is really disheartening.
    Anyway, I love your purchases and I hope you come back soon to indulge a little to your petite parterre :-)
    Lovely hugs from Italy

  11. Thank you everyone again for taking time to comment, and Flora, yes I think you are right there is a need to create just for the sake of it. Although I do enjoy trying to come up with something different for my etsy shop, I have some things I have been fiddling with for some time before I will be happy to show them.

  12. Beautiful furniture, Margaret!


Thanks for visiting, I would love to hear what you think ...
