New Christmas Miniatures in our Etsy store - better late than never!

We've just added some new Christmas miniatures to our Etsy store.  

Thanks to various colds, throat infections, getting ready for Christmas and now school holidays, we've had our hands full during the past couple of weeks.

We know it's late, but the pieces are ready and we're not keeping them here for the next 11 months!

You'll find them in our Etsy store at www.parisminiatures.etsy.com

Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday Savings on New Christmas Miniatures!

To start, we'd like to say a warm "Happy Thanksgiving" to all of our miniature friends, colleagues and customers in the USA.

Today sees the arrival of the first new Christmas miniatures for 2015 in our Etsy store.

And because tomorrow is Black Friday and this weekend sees us at a miniatures show in Paris, we've decided to discount this first series on our Etsy store from now until Monday!

Here are the new miniatures...

All of these new Christmas items are discounted until Monday 30 November in our Etsy store

All of these pieces are discounted by 15% until Monday 30 November. You don't need a coupon code, the discounted prices are those shown on Etsy :)

To help you find them, we've put them together in a section called "BLACK FRIDAY".  You can see them by clicking here.

Have a wonderful day and spare a thought for us if you're enjoying some pumpkin pie! :)

Etsy store temporarily closed

Following the terrible attacks on Friday evening in Paris, our Etsy store will be closed for the next few days as a mark of respect.
Our thoughts go out to the victims, their families and friends.

Suite aux attentats immondes survenus vendredi dernier à Paris, la boutique sera fermée quelques jours en signe de deuil.
Toutes nos pensées vont aux victimes, à leurs familles et à leurs amis et proches.

Happy Halloween! Joyeux Halloween!

C'est bien joli, Halloween, mais il faut bien avouer qu'en France, on est plus près du pétard mouillé que du feu d'artifice...!

Et pourtant, pour avoir fait LITTERALEMENT des centaines de mini citrouilles en Fimo, je devrais me sentir dans l'ambiance....mais non... MAIS SI!!!!!
Car cette année, nous avons reçu, ce matin, de New York, notre dose de "Halloween treats", dans des petits sacs, comme dans les séries américaines, soooo cool!

Un grand merci à Debbie, pour ces kilos de bonbecs étranges, en particulier les candy corn (triangles oranges, jaunes, blanc, c'est marrant, c'est tout mou! J'en fais en Fimo tous les ans, au moins maintenant je sais de quoi je cause!) et les M&Ms au bretzel, mes préférés :)

On vous souhaite à tous un joyeux Halloween, ...ou un excellent week-end, tout simplement, ou encore mieux, un bel automne, et pour ce faire, Pumpkin Pie, ma jolie custom Blythe se joint à nous, 

Happy halloween, les gens!


Halloween is all well and good, but honestly in France it's a bit of a damp squib.  A few carved pumpkins, the occasional tiny display in toy shops and a few discounted candies in the supermarket for the kids.  Not very festive.

After making LITERALLY hundreds of mini Fimo pumpkins this month, I really should be in the mood for it, but I'm not....but wait!!!! This very morning, a large box arrived direct from New York packed with enough Halloween treats for the three of us! Packed into beautiful little bags just like in American TV shows and movies!  Yay, Halloween!

A huge thank you to Debbie for these exotic candies, particularly the candy corns (which I've been making in miniature for years but now know how they taste!) and the pretzel M&Ms, my favourite! :)

We wish you all a Happy Halloween, an excellent weekend and even a beautiful autumn.  We're joined by Pumpkin Pie, my custom Blythe who won't be getting any of the candy!

A demain, les gens!

Nous vous présenterons une jolie petite pâtissière (non, pas notre fils avec des couettes, une custom Blythe, voyons!), avec plein de "gros/petits" gâteaux :)

Et puis, de nouvelles pâtisseries individuelles, de nouveaux moules, un petit gouter, vers 4 heures et même, des pochettes surprises!!!

Happy Valentine's Day - Meet my Blythes! (texte en français aussi)



Last winter, tired of hearing my boy making car noises all day long, I suddenly decided to get myself a doll!

But there were so many and I didn't know what to choose, so after getting a Tangkou and a few J-dolls, still hesitating between a small BJD and a Pullip, browsing Flickr I literally fell in love with Blythe....despite finding them quite ugly and strange only a few months earlier!

So here we are, one year later, it's now official on Valentines day ;)

The small one is a Middie Blythe Lena Elena, the big one is a factory and...I made the dresses!!!
(yes I deserve a medal for that considering my low level of skill at sewing!!!)

Happy Valentines Girls! :)))


L' hiver dernier, lassée d'entendre mon fils imiter des bruits de moteur à longueur de journée, j'ai été prise d une envie subite de poupée...

Mais le choix est vaste, et après une Tangkou et quelques J-dolls, alors que j'hésitais toujours entre une Petite BJD et une Pullip, en trainant sur Flickr, je suis tombée amoureuse, carrément, des Blythe que pourtant j'avais trouvées bien moches et bien bizarres quelques mois plus tôt!

Alors voilà, un an après l'envie de poupée, j'officialise le jour de la saint Valentin ;)

La petite est une Middie Lena Elena, la grande est une factory, et.... j'ai fait les robes!!!!
(si, si, c'est un exploit!)

Bonne Saint Valentin, les filles!!!
