Hi, Iam Norma. I'm not sure if I should describe miniatures as a hobby or an obsession, but it's the best escape from the cares of the world that I know - and an opportunity to indulge a love of vintage decor without breaking the bank.
Thanks very much for your encouraging feedback on the first two vignettes, as promised here's the third and last for the moment. I think the poster needs a bit of aging with some tea though, it's looking a bit pristine. I particularly enjoyed doing the multiple pink/grey paint layers on the back wall, and the corset was fun to do but I don't think I'll be going into serious mini lingerie production any time soon.
I've started work on a French farmhouse kitchen dresser, that'll be the last project for a while. As soon as I've finished it I'll be tidying my worktable and then starting to pack for Paris, can't wait!! I'm not sure if I'll be able to post from overseas, I'm having trouble with the Blogger mobile app but we'll see.
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! 😊
