When I have fun building a certain house I tend to want to make another. 'Cobweb Cottage' was such a pleasure to make I just had to build another similar and luckily a friend of mine said she would like the new cottage. So this is 'Rookery Cottage' (I saw the name somewhere on my travels and thought what a good name for a dolls house it was!) I have used the egg box stone again like on Cobweb (such fun cutting out bits of cardboard!) and then 'dirtied' the plaster inside and out with various paint washes.
Oh dear! It's December already and I haven't posted anything on my blog since October. I really don't know where the time goes.... Anyway, here is 'Smuggler's Cottage'. It is a 1/12th scale cottage and instead of plastering on the inside I have used wallpapers which I think makes it feel a bit more cosy. The weatherboarding on the front is very similar in style to cottages on the south coast, especially places like Rye where this is a long history of smuggling.
