Pink Collection 2016 now on Etsy! 70 Brand new beautiful miniatures...

We're excited to present this year's "Pink Collection" which is now available in our Etsy store.


As you may know, each September we create a special pink-themed collection of miniatures. It's our small way of saying goodbye to summer before moving on to the oranges, yellows and browns of fall (yes, autumn-lovers, we've already started!).


Over the past few weeks, we've created 70 brand new beautiful pieces with a gorgeous pink theme which we hope you'll love.


What if you don't like pink? Well, this isn't the collection you're looking for...!  We'll be back with autumn/halloween miniatures in October :)


Head over to our ETSY STORE where you can see the Pink Collection now...

Back to School / Work

September is here and that means the end of the long summer holiday.  Eight weeks of school holiday seemed like an eternity at the start of July!

Thankfully the weather is still warm and sunny which means the new school runs are a welcome moment to down tools and expose oneself to the late summer / early autumn sun.  

The blog has been quiet over the summer. We've been on holiday to the UK (Marks & Spencers - yay!), had a summer Christmas (complete with Santa!), celebrated our sons 5th birthday (where did those FIVE YEARS GO?!) and even made a few miniatures, including this chocolate floral cake listed in our Etsy store earlier this week...


So what's next?

Well, we're working on our annual Pink Collection which will be launched later in September, after that we'll be concentrating on Halloween/fall miniatures followed by Christmas miniatures

There will be other pieces between those major collections, but that should take us nicely to the end of the year.  Let us know in the comments of there's anything you'd like to see in any of those collections.

One other exciting piece of news - we're soon about to be published in American Miniaturist! Keep your eyes out for the Fall issue 162... More about that soon :)

It's a VERY Good Friday! New Easter Miniatures in our Etsy Store...

We're thrilled to announce that the final part of our Easter collection for 2016 is now available in our Etsy store!

What's that you say? It's Easter this weekend?! Yeah, well honestly things here didn't quite go to plan. We meant to have everything finished last week, but with Antoine off school for most of it, and a huge amount of orders to catch up on, we just didn't have time to work on the new pieces.

But Paris Miniatures never gives up! So here, at last, are the fruits of a few days of nose-to-the-grindstone, flat out miniaturing, photographing and Etsy-ing!

A sample...

All of these miniatures and more are now in our Etsy store
So apologies for the lateness but we figured most of you would prefer some lovely Easter pieces slightly late this year than wait until next year. We hope...!

So head on over to Etsy to see everything (35 new pieces!).
