Has it really been a year???

I can scarcely believe it's been a year since my last blog post. I have been doing some miniature work from time to time but have obviously been very poor at sharing here. Anyway here I am again at last 😊

In the last couple of weeks I've been working on some pieces that I hope I'll take to offer for sale at the French Country Market which is held in a town north of Sydney in November. I haven't booked my trading space yet so hopefully I'll get in okay. It's not a miniatures fair but my thinking is that the people who visit the fair love all things French. As well as French music and food there are several regular traders who sell (1:1) upcycled French style furniture and Brocante. Not everyone has room in their home for the full size pieces but maybe some will have a little space on a table or shelf for my mini version. Time will tell! 

I've done three Brocante theme vignette settings so far, each is 'one of a kind', and lots of fun to put together. This one is the perhaps the most 'glamorous'.  

The second is much more shabby/rustic ... 

Photos of the third one to come soon - I promise! 😊

They'll be snapped up in a trice!
Your craftsmanship and unerring eye for colour and composition, have produced 2 GORGEOUS vignettes, Norma.
And like a Fine French Wine, a year enhances your many skills and makes them even Better!

Gorgeous Norma! Good to see you back with a blog post and working on some beautiful minis. The first one is my favourite. Very elegant but comfortable.
