Back to Work.... first a tiny cottage.....

During the Christmas and New Year break - having filled up on chocolate and abandoned the T.V. as mostly not for me - I had fun catching up on my mini cottage building.  There never seems much time for this sadly so I classify them  as 'me time' projects.

You probably won't be too surprised to see that it's another little 1/48th scale round house inspired by the Trist houses in Veryan in Cornwall, which I love. It's probably the most 'authentic' of the ones I have made as it features a cross on the roof just like originals when they were built.  Rev. Trist the Vicar who organised their building was  making a statement to anyone tempted to stray from his church as well as having them contructed in the round form so the devil  had no corners to hide in! the legend goes.

St. Issey - 1/48th scale cottage

The cottage has a lift-off thatched roof for ease of access and the two rooms measure approximately 5ins. high - the roof adds about 3 ins.  Please email me if you'd like further details. I'm afraid as this one does incorporate some natural dried plant material it is only for sale in U.K. and will be on our stand at The Thame Fair in February unless it is sold before.

St. Issey - Interior

It's chilly and wet outside in the garden so it's cheery to see my orchids opening in the conseratory. This one is very glamorous I think. Now it's back to the 'day job' and I'm working on dolls again.

Thank you for looking

Your cottage is gorgeous - if only for more hours and more 'me' time!
