1/12th Scale 'The Lodge'

Just listed on ebay 'The Lodge' is a 1/12th scale cottage complete with furniture - an ideal Christmas present! Mrs. Smith is doing her bit as a good neighbour and making sure that everything is tidy for when the new occupants move in. This is such a cosy cottage when the lights are on and the fire is lit - ideal for dark winter days. Mrs. Smith was made by Susan Emsell and the flowers are by Marianne Cook.

1/12th Scale L'Atelier - Two Storey Shop/Studio

After adding the upper storey to my Christmas shop I thought I would make another two storey shop/studio. As the interior is only 6 inches deep I thought this would be great for people who don't have enough space for a full size house. This would make a lovely gift shop or a cupcake bakery - the choice is yours!

1/24th Scale 'Cranberry and Walnut Cottages'

I've been forced to take these photos indoors today - the weather is just too wet and miserable to venture outside. Here we have two new 1/24th scale houses - 'Cranberry Cottage' and 'Walnut Cottage'. I enjoyed making Holly and Ivy Cottages so much I had to make another pair of semis. There's Joe having a quick look round before the houses go on the market. This bad weather means he can't go out to sea so much so he would love a nice warm cottage for the winter.

Extended 1/12th Scale Christmas Shop

I decided to add an extra floor to my little Christmas shop - extra space for Santa to build toys or to have a sit down with a cup of tea. The building is still small enough to sit on a shelf or even be wall mounted if needed.

1/12th Scale French Style Shop

This is another 1/12th scale property which has recently come back to me and is now looking for a new home. I have repainted the exterior walls and have changed the colour of the big shop window from dark to light blue - it looks much better now I think. This would make a great shop for shabby chic accessories or flowers.

1/24th Scale Beach Hut

I know it's the wrong time of year and certainly the wrong kind of weather to be thinking about the seaside and beach huts but here's a new 1/24th scale hut looking for a new home. I was asked to make one for a customer and made a spare as well. It's on ebay right now and would make a lovely gift!!!
Before I go I must mention a wonderful blog I've just found Go and have a look at Karon's lovely photographs of her houses. Not that I'm biased at all (!!??!!) but check out her French house and see what she is doing with the interior. It's hard to tell whether the hallway is in a dolls house or a full size house!

1/12th Scale 'Spinney Brook Cottage'

Here's Sam looking round the latest cottage to come up for sale in the village. This is 'Spinney Brook', a 1/12th scale house I made some time ago which has recently been returned to me to be rehomed. I've given it a lick of paint and changed the colour of the window frames and door and now it's as good as new. Sam was made by Robin Britton and the lovely flowers are from Marianne Cook.

1/12th Scale 'The Little Flower Shop'

This is another little shop in 1/12th scale and designed to sit on a shelf or a bookcase out of the way. I thought it would make a nice flower shop (to show off all Marianne Cook's wonderful potted plants!) but it could be used for anything - the choice is yours. Listed on ebay last night so please go and take a look.

1/12th Scale 'The Lavender Barn'

Here's a new little building just completed and listed on ebay yesterday. It's called 'The Lavender Barn' and it is in 1/12th scale. It can be used as a stand alone structure or could be a useful addition to an existing cottage. Possibilities for use are endless - a pottery studio, an artist's studio, a writer's retreat, a shabby chic gift shop - the choice is yours! Marianne Cook made the gorgeous flowers.

1/24th Scale 'Holly Cottage' and 'Ivy Cottage' Semidetached Houses

Here's Joe looking round two new properties on the market today - Holly Cottage and Ivy Cottage. Two little semidetached houses - great for a seaside village! Joe was made by Susan Emsell of Suecraft Dolls.
