Little House Nearly Completed.

I haven't had much time to work on my little house. This time of year is mad! But I took a few pictures and thought I would post them. I had a go at making a basket. It's a scruffy one but so is my RL one. My little house is slowly filling up. Just need to work on the garden and outside area and it's nearly done. Don't look at the blue tack holding the rolling pin in place will you. Every time I needed to move the house (it's on an old computer desk of the kids, it has castor's) there would be this horrible noise of all the little things carefully arranged falling. At one stage the kitchen looked like it had been ransacked!! Double sided tape in tiny pieces and blue tack fixed that. The table set with goodies for a yummy afternoon tea. The tea cosy was an Ebay find. The bullion roses are so small and the colours are delicious. Some of Jennifer's mail from Looking glass Miniatures on the sideboard. The letter holder is just a brass finding bent to shape. I had smashed the hurricane lamp part of this light. A pandora bead fits over the top nicely and gives a lovely glow when it is on. I will never recover a wing chair again. EVER!! It was awful to do and I don't like the messyness but the print is now more to scale. I used double sided tape to make the cushions and they are stuffed with glass beads to make them floppy. This is looking through the bay window. The sideboard still needs to be filled with 'stuff'. Plans for the next house are all sketched out and supplies are en route!! How excitement!!!

  2. It's all beautiful Carrie, would so love to see it up close! You have a gift for making things look lived in, loved and so comfy.

    You need some Tacky Wax! Blu Tac stains if left too long.

  10. So when can you move in? Would love a little cottage like this real size, in the English countryside with fairy glens nearby.

    What a warm and welcoming delight these settings are, the wingchair looks wonderful so hopefully you consider the awful work worth it. Love the floppy cushions! The atmoshpere you're created is so lovely.

  18. Carrie, I'm just blog visiting from my favourites for a few minutes and I happened on your blog. I just have to tell you that looking at the photos of your house is like opening a book of fairy tales. The spirit embodied in all the things you have created in this little house is one of wonder and it satisfies any craving I might have for something fanciful to look at. You are a little genius! You have the magic touch!
