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!

Let There Be ...





LIGHT! I got a real kick out of powering up my new lamps, even though I don't have a house or room to place them in I just love the way they liven up the small space around them. This one is shown on a small chest which I like as a lamp table. This lamp is in my etsy shop and I will be adding more styles soon. Hope everyone is having a happy start to the week.

A bientot!

    I agree about how much fun it is to make lamps. When you get to light them, it feels like magic.

  4. WOW Margaret, the lamp is awesome, very stylish! I think that this lamp can also be placed in a modern, or a shabby chic, or in an "old" interior!

    1. I love lamps too Fi and have a few in the house I much prefer their ambience to ceiling lights, unless you have downlights with dimmers or, chandeliers. I will be experimenting with more designs soon.

  8. It looks so pretty.....I think it is a "must" to have lights in a house, I love the process....sometimes it is a bit tricky, but so worth all the effort.

  10. Hi Margaret! The lamp is wonderful and you must feel so proud of yourself!? It casts such a pretty light and is so very versatile. I agree with your comment about preferring table lamps to ceiling fixtures, I do too. I usually have to paint the bulbs with glass paint to cut the light down in most ceiling fixtures. Too much light is almost as bad as not enough!
