This is 'Pumpkin Cottage', a 1/12th scale one room cottage just completed. I had such a lot of fun building this little house. It all started with the window - I bought it ages ago at a fair and when I came across it a couple of weeks ago (down the back of the computer of all places!) the idea of an old dirty cottage came to mind. I kept the cottage small so it could easily be stored away if it was to be used just as a Halloween display piece. I think it would look wonderful with some lights and a flickering stove in the corner and your homeless witch would be very happy to move in here! For sale on ebay right now.

I bought a set of 24th scale windows from Malcolm's Miniatures recently and used them in this little farmhouse cottage - they are very finely detailed and very good to work with. This cottage could just as easily be at the seaside - the choice is yours!

I bought a couple of shop fronts at a fair recently and this is what I have done with the first one. The fronts were made by Tollgate Miniatures so they are built from beautiful quality plywood. I have added a plywood box to create a nice shop space and this is the result. A handy size for putting on a shelf or on a windowsill to display your favourite shabby chic furniture!
