After disappearing into my studio for a month, I have new things to show. First is that storybook style cottage I mentioned in my last post. I'm calling it "Charming Cottage":
It's a somewhat smaller version of the Glencairn Cottage I made a couple of years ago.The chimney was inspired in part by the Hugh Comstock "Hansel" cottage in Carmel, CA. I loved the niche for the flowerpot in the chimney, so I just has to include it in my version.
It was a bit of a challenge putting the curve in the roof, but I managed it by bending 1/64" plywood with the grain.
The interior is a bit dark - just like the full size houses. There's a sitting room on the ground floor and a bedroom upstairs. The fireplace is the same asymmetrical shape as the chimney. On the right side of the bedroom is a tiny porcelain cat on a hassock by Sylvia Mobley, which unfortunately only partly shows in the picture.
If you blow up the photos, you'll see that I really should have been sure to blow all the landscaping foam out of the house before I took the pictures!
