- I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

The Lavender Shop : a new project
Sorry I've been away for so long, but I had so much to do outside, like each year, when spring finally arrives, there's a lot to do in the garden and since we had such good warm weather for almost an entire month now, I started to get going
Also, I made a few new elephants, since I'm a big fan of the Elephant Parade. There is a recent post here on my blog about this subject. Feel free to check out my FB page "Dany's Elephant Paradise" and my website www.danyselephantparade.jimdo.com
But for now, let's get back to my miniatures. I had an idea in the back of my head for quite some time now and I finally got to it. I'm a big fan of lavender, I love the smell, but also the bright color and the beauty of it in general. I do have lavender plants all over my garden, in every corner and I always wanted to make something related to it in miniature.
A while back, I discovered "Michaelas Miniaturen" http://michaelas-miniaturen.blogspot.de on the Web (check out her previous blog too : http://www.michaelas-miniaturen.beeplog.de) and she has a Lavender Shop there which I instantly fell in love with of course.
I don't know yet if I'm going to make an entire shop or maybe just a few displays first, we'll see about that in the future.
For now, what I'm trying to do, is designing my own line of products so-to-say, and therefore I started working on the computer in order to make boxes of all sorts for my shop
It's a start, but I'm afraid there's still a lot of fumbling ahead of me :-) :-)
So stay tuned, there's more to come
Happy Easter to all of you, enjoy the time with your loved ones
