This is absolutely posilutely ADORABLE! I love all the little details and the cottage look is very endearing. I especially love the roof tiles! This is the sort of this my mum might collect. I'd like a set of these myself... like a little village. Beautiful job!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. I really appreciate them. Yes, I'm kinda funny when it comes to the details of things. All the little plant type objects were from a bag of potpourri. The door is made from a piece of stained glass and so is the little window. The house itself started out as a plain unfinished pine house. I added the little rocks with a grouting compound. The roof is actually pieces of pine cones that I took apart and glued on individually. The little flowers are real dried flowers. I tried to keep everything as natural as possible. I'm really glad you all liked it. Thank you for taking the time to comment on it. It means a lot to me.  Grin

Thank you for the compliment. I'm glad you like it. Yeah, I think taking the extra time to pull the pinecones apart and use them really added something to it. Smiley

Really gorgeous work!  I can imagine that took quite some time.  It looks so natural, as if everything belongs exactly where it is.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. I really do appreciate them all. Yes, it did take me a while to make this but it was so much fun. I'm glad that it looks natural because that was exactly what I was going for. I wanted it to look as if everything "grew" there. I would say the longest parts of making this were the roof and the landscape itself. The rest was fairly easy. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Smiley Take care and have a great day. Smiley

Okay, this is seriously one of the CUTEST things I have ever seen! It's so adorable! Do you have little fairy figures that live inside of it?


I might have to attempt to make one of these soon....!

I think you deserve a Huge pat on the shoulder on this. It's just great and must have taken a long time to complete! I just came back to this thread and notice the cute flowers in the entrance to the house. How cool.

Awww, thank you so much. You are so sweet. No, I have been pondering that though. Not sure what direction I would go as far as making some little fairies. My sculpting abilities are not great by a long shot. LOL.. If you do make one, please post pics so I can see it... Thank you again for the compliments.  Grin

Awww, thank you.. You are a sweetheart.  Grin Yes, it did take some time to complete. I don't remember exactly how long but it was a while. LOL.. I love flowers so anywhere I can stick them is a good thing.
