New Project - The Woodcutter's Cottage

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are enjoying your weekend and are all set for Christmas. Sorry for not posting before but just like most of us Christmas time keeps me busy.  One week to go and it will be Christmas Day..... I can't believe how time flies. Before I start I wanted to welcome a new follower to my blog; Welcome Zulueta E!

Hope that you are all enjoying this year's Advent Calendar.

The Queen Mary's Bedroom Diorama is still not complete as I still need to add some more details but I am pleased and all set to start my new Dolls House Project The Woodcutter's Cottage


The Woodcutter's Cottage is another discontinued Dolls House Emporium kit which I had for quite some time. 

It is a cute little cottage with four rooms and a nice staircase. The picture of above and below are old pictures from a DHE Catalog.


To add on to the little cottage just like the 1st picture I will be adding the Old English Garden which is another discontinued Dolls House Emporium Kit. I believe that the 2 kits were meant for each other. 

So my Woodcutter's cottage has been out of the box for the past four years just before my little Leah was born. I remember that I was all set to start it off after settling down with the new arrival. How wrong was I! I can't believe that I have prolonged this project for four years and built and completed so many projects before  it. For some reason I always have put it aside and started something else. Now I have put my foot down and will start working on this one.

I like it's layout. It's not big but I do have smaller dolls houses than this one. The pieces are very easy to put together and I have some great ideas for it.

So far I have dry built the building to see what I will be needing.



I am thinking of using a stencil to brick the outer walls for it.I always loved these staircases by DHE. They are so compact and look lovely in place.

There are quite a few windows and pieces to add to it.


I have started by painting the windows and doors and what I liked about them is that the door and the circular window on top have stained glass sticker effect.





So far this is what I have done as I am still waiting for some supplies. During the Christmas Rush post can be quite frustrating but I don't mind. In the mean time I will be painting some walls and start working  on the outside of the house.


This is all for today. I am quite excited to really start working on this dolls house. 

Hopefully I will be posting a post before Christmas and hopefully I will be updating you with some works of this house so keep tuned.

Take Care and see you soon.

Hugs,

Rebecca xxxx
