Mini Madness

New Piu Piu #123 You only had to wait 24 hours for the "surprise". I had to wait 2 weeks.

For the NEW - WONDERFUL MAISON PIERRE HERME DESSERTS MINI COLLECTION!I spotted on Flickr a wonderful photo by ICY NERD of these sweet little dollhouse Pierre Herme desserts and of course I HAD TO HAVE THEM!

I went madly searching all over the web and ended up in Hong Kong!The new set is made by MegaHouse in Japan.#121 Yellow Bird inspects PH chocolatesI couldn't really be sure what size the miniatures were? Would they go with my dollhouse tea set?Hmm...after careful comparative analysis I have to admit that no, they are much smaller than the dollhouse tea set. This "real" package of Pierre Herme hot chocolate powder is 4 1/4" tall versus the miniature is just 3/4" high.

Oh well..on verra bien as the French say. It will all turn out well hopefully.This is Pierre Herme's Fall catalogue, sized 5 3/4" wide by 8 1/4" tall
The tiny life-like PH sac is 2" x 2" You get the picture?

Christine Ferbier mini-confiture LOOK! Even one teeny, tiny jar of Christine Ferbier jam made for Pierre Herme is included. You tell me what the flavour is. My magnifying glass isn't strong enough. I think I need a microscope here.
Maison Pierre Herme Desserts Mini Collection You can order your set of 8 boxes of heavenly Maison Pierre Herme Desserts Mini Collection from in Hong Kong and you'll get it in about a week.

Plus Herme is having a contest/lottery for 8 free sets if you sign on before January 18.

At least all the desserts fit nicely on my dollhouse silver tray. Look at it this way - What better way to curb your appetite after the Holiday excess with these non-caloric miniatures?


  1. Well, well, well so that's what it was. I LOVE THEM! Only you could manage to find these.

    The paintings of the charming bird I like even more than the miniatures!

  3. Cute paintings. The yellow bird looking into the box looks like he's thinking "They're only that big?". Love them on the silver Tray. Now you can buy faux Macarons & I can't find real ones to taste. What's wrong with this picture??? hmmmm

  4. Why do I have the feeling each of those cute, and inquisitive little birdies...are standing in for
    you today, Carol?

    Those are a riot. I think your paintings are exquisite, but the miniatures wouldn't be very satisfying, I'm afraid! I agree--the little bird looks like he's thinking "is that all there is?" like the Peggy Lee song!! ;))

  6. What fun ! I think the little bird is saying, " Nibbles for me, oh boy.":)
    Love the paintings.
    All best, Jan

  24. They are incredibly cute! Those mini toys such as tea set looks so real but just in miniature size. I wonder how it was made! So detailed!
