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!

I Warned You ...
As promised here is another of my trays, similar to the earlier three but with the addition of the sweetest little crucifix that really looks like a relic. I found it on a jewellery finding but there was only one.
I made this lamp, based on the pair I have beside the bed. They are fairly tall as is this mini version, would probably look best on a lamp table or bedside. I haven't lit it as yet as I must find all my electricals which are stashed away in boxes somewhere. Electricals are not my strong point :)
All are listed in my etsy store if you want to see more pics. I am thinking up more styles to add to the range.
Hope everyone is having a great start to the week. Summer has really come early here with record temperatures for September, several days in the low 30deg celsius.
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!
