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 the Winners Are ...
Thank you everyone who entered my giveaway, which isn't a trip to Sydney, I just thought I would include a pic of lovely Sydney harbour.
There were 76 entries in all. I chose the most non-technical way of drawing the winners, by writing down the 76 numbers on paper, cutting them out and my partner drew the numbers from a hat (well a bowl really).
First draw is number 20, Narina Napertaa
Second draw is number 74, Genevieve of miniacollection
Third draw is number 4, Elizabeth S of Studio E
Sorry I have left it a little late to do the draw so you will have to wait a little longer to know what the second and third prizes will be. I will post photos tomorrow.
Thank you everyone for your interest and I am sorry I don't have a prize for you all, maybe next time.
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!
