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!

Time for a Giveaway - almost 500!
I would like to thank all my followers with a small giveaway to show my appreciation for your comments and encouragement. I have been absent a lot from my blog while keeping busy with my etsy store but keep up with what you are all doing.
This rustic wooden chair could suit a number of situations, in a shabby chic kitchen setting or hallway, perhaps you have a rustic verandahf or porch. The giveaway includes the chair, pretty cushion and the large satchel that could hold sticks or wood for the fire, or perhaps wildflowers.
Everyone is welcome to enter, if you are a follower, just leave a comment and you will be in the draw, which finishes on 1 September 2013, our first day of Spring here. Place the link in your sidebar if you wish, that would be great.
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!
