Closing the Curtains to The Woodcutter's Cottage.

Hello everyone,

How are you all? Hope you are all doing well. I have been working hard while being under the weather. The change of  the weather always effects me. Got myself one hell of a cold. I am assuming that it is the aftermath after such a tough few weeks. My darling husband is back on his feet and working hard like always. He has been trying to make up for the lost time on the new premises but I don't want him to over do it even if it will take longer than planned. 

Now I am looking forward for the Summer days. As we are approaching June, I have to admit it is the toughest month. Getting the kids to study for their final exams, just before their long summer break. Can't wait to have them at home and enjoying our hot warm Summer together.

Before I start I wanted to welcome four new followers of my blog. Mashu Tres, Jadis Wolf, Missy or Nona and Ella. A BIG Welcome!

Today I will be sharing with you the end of The Woodcutter's Cottage. I can't even believe that finally I got it all done. After the big move I am hoping to add to it a garden and maybe even some sort of barn or tool shed Only time will tell, but for now it will be standing on it's own.

The Woodcutter's Cottage
To continue were I left off, I finally finished the darn roof slates. They say patience is a virtue. While tiling the roof slates usually I try to relax and just use the time to think on my next step or project. I have painted the roof grey and gave it some more detail by shading some ares in a darker color. 



When the roof was all done I wanted to finish off the front garden of the cottage. So I started by building the low boundary wall and painted the floor in grey.


Then I got some card stock and shaded it with dark browns, lighter browns and green and cut the card into small tiles.



I have tiled the flooring and sealed it.




The cottage didn't come with the front gate so I decided to add one that fitted the space perfectly. I also trimmed the boundary wall with some wood to match the gate.





When that was complete I fixed the front to the dolls house which my hubby hinged. For some reason after all these years he still doesn't allow me to use the power tool. I don't mind it at all. I wall papered the inside of the front to match the rooms and also made myself the curtains.




I also added the last bits and accessories to the dolls house. All lights have been fixed and lit. I love the little cottage. It is decorated very simple but warm at the same time. Here are the rooms.


The Bedroom



The Bathroom


The living / dining



The Kitchen


I also decorated the outside of the dolls house to add a few more details.




And so once again I have completed another dolls house. I am sure that there will be more added to the house especially if I have plans to add a garden to it. But I have to admit this is a wrap. I hope you like how it has turn out to be. 

A few might ask what's next on the line? At this point in time, I would say I don't have a clue. We are getting close to the move of my dolls houses in their new home and starting a new dolls house at this stage would be unwise. So for the time being I am hoping to finish of the Queen Mary's Bedroom Diorama and if it will be finished before the move I have a small room box which I might decorate. 

Next in line will definitely be a new property in Regent Street. I can't wait to start it off.

So this is all for today. Keep tuned for some more of my miniature work updated.

Take Care and see you soon.

Hugs,

Rebecca xxxx

  4. Me encanta tu cabaña! He disfrutado mucho viendo cómo se formaba desde le principio y me gusta mucho el resultado. Como dices, ha quedado muy acogedora. Y me encanta que esté habitada; nunca me han gustado las casitas que no tienen sus moradores :) felicidades!
