Romantic Dollhouse Gazebo: Angel Fountain

I've added more roses. It's a slow process since I make them each by hand.

I also added moss between the stones. That made a huge difference!

These are some little fallen petals I made.


And this is what arrived in the mail today. I wasn't sure how it would look. But when I took it out of the box I was pleasantly surprised a the amount of detail on this little guy. I'm going to try adding "water" .  First, I'll do a little bit of aging on the fountain. I was going to do verdigris. But I love the cream color. So I'll just add a tiny bit of green and rust.
I think this is the right spot for the fountain. See what I mean about the cream color? It just fits in so well.

I want to thank all of you for all those sweet comments you leave. You really put a smile on my face! Thank you!

  6. You have really outdone yourself, with this one. It is utterly superb! Just an incredible eye for detail! So very pretty and romantic. Are you going to add any table and chairs or seating?? I would love to be able to fit inside this charming little Gazebo, on an ornate garden seat, and soak up the ambience...*wistful sigh*
