Painting and Pastries

We're on a bit of a roll at the moment - it's amazing what a bit of self-discipline and organisation will do!

Today's new pieces include some pretty little pâtisserie selections and a firescreen with some fine painting.  It's been a while since I've painted anything with as much detail as the firescreen piece and it made a relaxing change from polymer clay for a while.

I hope you enjoy seeing it along with the other new pieces, all of which have been listed in our Etsy store today.

The Painting...

This firescreen is handpainted in black and pink - available here 

You don't even need a fireplace!  It makes a lovely decorative piece anywhere.

...and the pastries...

A strawberry and pistachio entremet - available here

Pink pastries assortment - available here

Parisian Shabby Chic Chocolate Hutch

The last couple of days have been pretty hectic as we set ourselves a stupidly ambitious deadline - finish 40 miniatures, get them photographed and listed on Etsy. By this Saturday. Better make that Friday - we're out on Saturday...

But we did it!  It's now 6:30pm on Friday evening but everything is now ready in our Etsy store. There are cakes, pastries (what else did you expect?!) but also a few non-food pieces.

You'll also find this gorgeous chocolate-themed hutch which we're particularly happy with :)

So with our bellies rumbling (we skipped lunch!), we're about to wind things up for this week by telling you that those 40 brand new minis have just appeared in our Etsy store! Phew!

Have a lovely weekend!

Paris Miniatures in new blog post shocker!

Right, enough!  I'm tired of seeing "Merry Christmas" each time I visit our blog!  One and a half months might be our longest period without posting anything here, but what did you want to read - "Oh it's cold!" every day?  Probably not...

Many thanks to everybody who has been in touch over the last couple of months enquiring about where we were.  We took a break from miniatures to enjoy life for a bit over Christmas and the New Year, but now we're back with tons of ideas for miniatures bursting from our brains!

So although it'll be a little while before we have anything ready to show in full, here's a glimpse of some of the new pieces that'll be first to arrive once we finally open the shutters of our Etsy store...

Seriously, it really has been very cold, hasn't it...?! ;-)
