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!

It has been a long absence and I notice many other bloggers have gone quiet, where have you all gone. Thought I would post the first of my miniatures in over a year! After a big move back to my home state Tasmania, into an old house in much need of repair, I finally found the inspiration to start creating again. While my life-size house is still a bit of a mess, I find respite in creating something beautiful (at least I hope you agree, lol).
I love beautiful beds and have tried to give them character in 1/12th scale. Let me know what you think. As usual they are listed in my etsy shop which has also been quiet for a loooong time.
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!
