About me

Location Bellingen, New South Wales, Australia
Introduction Miniatures are a very forgiving afternoon filler. Letting me walk away and forget about it till I have some time again. Now it has become a way of life and a way of doing my life with what I sell in my Etsy shop. I have always loved the old worn homes and the character of their contents. The remnants of yesteryear have so much more character than today's modern clinical stiffness. Houses were made to be homes and to be well lived in. I love the ones that have been loved and show how they have been loved. They tell a story and the story is so much easier to tell when it fits on the kitchen table. I also have a fancy for the European style of things. So much history and diversity. Miniatures allow me to explore these worlds. So this blog is just about the miniatures of my life. How they inspire me, allow me to be inspired and how I go about doing them.
Interests Miniatures, gardens, antiquities, European architecture, art, designing and creating, roses, bargain finds.
