Something a Little Bit Different - 1/24th Scale 'The Rectory'

I have an old issue of 'Dolls House World' with the most wonderful house featured on the front cover - made by Trigger Pond. I loved the shape of the house so I used that as the basis for this 'stone' lodge. The windows are made from air drying clay, as is the roof. I added a pale wash of colour all over (which hasn't shown up very well in the photo) to add an 'aged' look. Can you see the tiny tiny pot of anenomes on the door step made by the very talented Marianne Cook? She makes the most wonderful plants and flowers (you will have seen her lovely pot of lavender on nearly all the photos of my 1/12th scale cottages).
