About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Maker of 1/12th scale Miniatures
Location New South Wales, Australia
Introduction 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!
Interests Doing something creative, which at the moment revolves around my miniatures, I have a shop on etsy - argusminis.etsy.com - will be adding some new miniatures soon), also a long-term project is furnishing my French garden/flower shop, my pets, decorating, travel, attending antiques auctions, dining out or in, pottering in the garden, seeing a good movie etc, etc...
Favorite Movies Loved Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst, Out of Africa, Melancholia (although it is a little melancholic as the name implies)
Favorite Music Find it hard single anything out, my tastes are varied, from Chopin's Etudes to Verdi to Fleetwood Mac.
Favorite Books Pillars of the Earth, The Fortunes of Richard Mahoney, any of Patricia Cornwell's good murder mysteries, Crime and Punishment
