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!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
From the little house down under, where a gust of wind just blew through the door and knocked down the tree and all the Christmas greeting cards, sending everyone the happiest of Christmas wishes and good fortune for the New Year.
Work is underway making little mince tarts as you can see, but a little straightening up is in order.
After temperatures in the high 30s (celsius) earlier in the week, we are all glad of some respite from the heat and a little rain so we can enjoy a traditional celebratory lunch of turkey and pork etc.
Thank you all for stopping by and I hope to have some more interesting things to show you in the coming year.
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!
