Greenleaf Contest DollHouse 2009 kit Shabby Chick

This item is for sell on eBay right now Item # 190505340955

 Birds,Butterflies, Bunny Rabbit and a cat are little creatures you'll see peeping around this cute little cottage! Sometimes, I get excited about a project when it begins to look like what I saw in my minds eye and this house did not disappoint me. 

This house has been electrified so all of the lights and the outlets work and come on when plugged in (Transformer and lead in wire not included in this auction). I made the statue of the little boy holding a bird. I sculpted him from creative paperclay. The roof tiles, stones and brick and even the grassy base are all created using creative paperclay. I hand sculpted and then hand painted each and every shingle, stone & brick several colors of paint to create the realistic fantastical dream cottage you see pictured.  I made the rose bush with delicate rose flowers and petals. The vine next to the front door of the house has 2 birds perched and waiting to see who comes by for a visit.  I also hand made the bird house that is on the side of the house. The rose door knocker was also a creation of mine. The windows were upgraded to give a brand new flavor to this house. The herringbone brick walkway also add the extra eye candy & charm to this cozy cottage.

Moving on to the insides of this cottage, there has been things added to customize and add a touch "charm". The wood floors were painted white and the lower level floors has pink stenciled leaves are surrounding the border. The Couch, chair and stool is included in this auction. The wallpaper has gorgeous shades of pink, green and cream. The room upstairs has "drawers" (non opening) on the one wall and  storage below them. The handcrafted & created bed was made by me. 
This was a fun house to build. It is 1" scale and the measurements are 18" W x 17"H x 14 1/2" D (including the base).  This house is 1" scale (1" = 1' scale)

  1. This is gorgeous! if I wasn't waiting on a Garfield so my blog can get rolling I would have loved to splurge on this. The stone work is brilliant, and the roof shingles...
    I'm not crazy about how flat the standard ones seem but I wouldn't have the patience to sculpt my own! :P
