1/24th Scale 'Anchor Cottage'

This is 'Anchor Cottage' which was completed just last night. Another little 24th scale property - ideal for those collectors who are running out of space!

1/24th Scale French Style Shop

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.

1/24th Scale 'Sea View'

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.

1/12th Scale 'Rose Cottage'

'Rose Cottage' started life like Mead Cottage as a two sided diorama/room box bought on ebay. I added walls, the upper floor, roof and front and then had fun decorating the little house it became.

1/12th Scale 'The Laurels'

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.

1/12th Scale 'October 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!

Two 1/12th Scale Seaside Cottages

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.

1/12th Scale 'November Cottage'

This is another little 'tatty' cottage like Pumpkin. Great for a witch to call home. Or for a fisherman needing a little place to store and repair his fishing nets. Won't take up too much space and full of character!
