This is Barnacle Cottage, a new 1/12th scale property just gone on ebay. I had great fun building this particular house. I knew what I wanted it to look like right from the start so it seemed much easier than those houses where I sort of design as I go along. As you can see I have a prospective new occupant viewing the place. My lovely sailor was made by Robin Britton of Coombe Crafts. Have a look at her website and blog (if only I could do the link thing I could direct you to the right place!!) Her dolls are so full of character. My sailor has been homeless for a while and I think he is tempted to move in to Barnacle Cottage right away.
