This is a little 24th scale French style shop completed just before Christmas. It is all handmade - the only bought item was the doorknob on the shop door and the hinges for the opening front! I chose pretty wallpapers for the inside. It would make a lovely flower shop and being such a nice size it will fit anywhere.
This is 'Sea View', a 24th scale cottage built a few weeks ago. I decided to wallpaper this one rather than plastering and painting the internal walls. I like the effect of using two papers of a similar pattern but different colours.
I have been a little bit lazy recently and haven't been updating my blog as often as I should. This is 'The Laurels', a small 1/12th scale house I built a few weeks ago. The windows were handmade by John at J&A Supplies and they are so pretty - very fitting for a country cottage.

I've just realised that I haven't shown you 'October Cottage'. I built this ages ago and it is now in its new home in Northern Ireland. A simple one up and one down cottage ideal for a seaside hideaway - we can still think about the seaside and holidays even in the middle of winter!
I was asked to build two 1/12th scale cottages to stand alongside each other. They were going to join two more of my cottages in Northern Ireland and this pair were designed to fit on a table of a certain size. I like the soft green and lavender together - very restful.
