1/12th Scale 'Ferry Cottage'

This is 'Ferry Cottage', my latest 1/12th scale dolls house just completed and photographed in the garden this afternoon between downpours. My idea was to make a couple of small garden areas where outdoor items could be displayed without always having to be moved when the front of the house is opened. I wanted to be able to show off Marianne Cook's wonderful potted plants - her lavenders are always gorgeous but her latest are more beautiful than ever and the iris (just visible in the right of the picture is so real it's amazing. I think Bill our resident window cleaner has taken a fancy to this little house and seems to be doing more nosying through the window than cleaning!! Bill was made by the very talented Susan Emstell of Suecraft Dolls and it's shame he has his back to the camera because her people have the most lovely faces. Ferry Cottage is on ebay right now if you would like to take look.
