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!

    1. Thank you Marisa, best wishes for the New Year also!

  2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  3. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas Margaret and a very happy New Year =0)

    1. Thank you Pepper and the same to you, warm greetings from Australia!

  4. Hi Margaret,
    Thank you for your greetings. My Family - Mother, siblings, cousins are in QLD and Victoria. I must admit that when I am down under it no longer feels like Christmas to me - more like a wonderful midsummer holiday!
    Temperatures today are 3C with low cloud and sleety rain.
    Bruce is in his workshop making an insect hotel for our garden. I'm listening to smooth jazz on the radio. So it is a quiet few days before we look after our Grandchildren as school is out for a couple of weeks. Parents still have to work.
    I imagine it very differently in NSW.
    All the best for a healthy and happy 2016.
    Regards Janine

    1. Your Christmas sounds relaxing, though I don't know if I could survive 3C, we've been shivering in an unusually cool Christmas so far, from around 19-23C with lots of rain, better than bushfires though.
      I spent Christmas in the UK many years ago but didn't get snow, even up in Scotland.
      We've taken the dog to the beach for a swim but too cold for us still. We had a 44.5C day in November, I think the weather has gone crazy.
      I am intrigued by the insect hotel, I assume it is to attract beneficial insects, hehe?
      We have no relatives close, mine are interstate, Tas and WA, so miss the family get-togethers but keep in touch by phone and email.
      Enjoy your time with your grandchildren, they grow up so fast. They say time seems to pass more quickly as you get older, now I know it is true, don't know where the days go sometimes.


Thanks for visiting, I would love to hear what you think ...
