 Hello to you and to 2018! I hope you all and a happy and safe Christmas. I haven't been able to do too much but hope to have this house finished soon. I will put it up in my Etsy shop when it's done. Thinking of adding a climbing rose and a still working on what colour to do the door. Some more aging all over as well I think.

Also please visit the super friendly Amanda's blog. She also has a shop. You can find it here, 

Be well and take care!


  1. Hello Carrie,
    This house is lovely. I really love the paneling in the rooms. Each space is beautiful and realistic.
    Big hug

  2. Hi Carrie, Hope you are not having any of the hot weather that Sydney has experienced. It certainly made the news here in Vancouver, Canada.
    I vote for apricot roses as it compliments the exterior wall colour and a climbing rose is so appealing.
    A very sweet house.
    All the best. Happy to see your post come up on my reading list.
    Regards Janine

  3. Una casa preciosa y muy real. La idea del rosal esta muy bien.
    Besujis y feliz año!!

  4. Beautiful! Molto bella! ❤️

  5. Hi Carrie! This house looks so beautiful! It has a very "Gustavian" look to it! I think the door would look great in a Sweedish red! You have such an amazing design sense for gracious antique spaces! It looks beautiful!
    Happy New Year!

  6. Utterly Charming! I love the soft mottled finish on the exterior and the worn but refined interior which is move in ready.
    You have infused this little house with loads of atmosphere and it is still empty! Quite an extraordinary achievement and I'm pea green with envy!
    But DO add climbing roses because this house is made for them. :D

  7. Hello, Carrie - I love the front of this house - the elegance of the door and the symmetry of the window placement lend such a gracious ambiance - and you've carried that throughout the rooms of the house. I concur in regard to the climbing roses - they'll be the perfect finishing touch to the exterior of the house.

  8. Hi Carrie
    I love your colour choices, inside and out. And climbing roses, definitely! I agree with Elizabeth that this little house already has atmosphere.

  9. So happy to see a new post and the progression of what you are working on! Amazing, as always.

  10. Hi Carrie! The house is lovely! The door could be of contrasting strong shiny colour or neutral soft one like it's now?
