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!

Louis Style Settee Finished





Finally got around to finishing the French settee by adding the tiny armrests and cushion. I love the soft colours of the fabric, just slightly faded looking. I need to finish the two matching chairs. The settee is now in my etsy shop.

It is Spring here in the southern hemisphere, and after lots of rain we finally have had some sunshine the last few days. It is warming up slowly and flowers are blooming, the best time of the year.
Welcome to new followers and thanks to all who have continued to visit my 'quiet' blog. Hope there will be more to show you soon.

Until then,
A bientot!

  2. I know what you mean Catherine, but you could always put some away for a future 'maison'!

  3. Hello Margaret! When you say 'quiet blog' it should be followed by "because I was busy working on this Marvelous Settee!" because when you are quiet is is always for a very good reason.
    Early this morning, there was a heavy dew on the windscreen of my car, which is proof that our Canadian Fall is just around the corner.
    Enjoy your turn for Spring!

    1. Hi Susan, Thank you, I think it is a very flexible style to mix and match with more modern furniture, perhaps a chateau might be on the cards for you?

  12. Hi Margaret, I'm not sure if I my first comment went through or not, but I did want to let you know that I LOVE your French sofa. The seat upholstery is so pretty and the finish on the wood frame allows for a lot of versatility within a setting.
    I honestly don't know how you can ever part with any of your furniture pieces. Each one is so Uniquely Beautiful and if it were me, I would hate to let any of them leave home. :)
