I'm still getting the base done for this house. Today, I put in the chimney on the side of the house.
I used cardboard. This is just to give me a shape. It will all be concrete.
On the other side, I already framed the window inside and outside and painted it gray.
You can still see the glue not yet dry on there.
I also worked on the front door. It's also gray with a Melissa Frances embellishment.
I put a little rust running down from the door knob.
This is the window box that will go under the attic window in the front. I used a flower embelishment that I painted white. Then I used a brown ink pad to highlight the whole thing.
I'm going to try putting lights in the turrets with some stained glass windows. We'll see how that comes out.
This is inside so far. Nothing exciting yet.


  1. The flower embellishments are fun, plus all of the antiquing you've done. Can't wait for the next installment, Caroline! :-)

  2. I have followed your blog for a while and have always enjoyed your work. I think the window box is a brilliant idea and I can't wait to see the progress of this enchanting My Prince Will Come Cottage :)

    Thank you for your interest in my blog.

  3. I really like to follow this whole process ... ;)
    The window box is beautiful!

  4. I love castles as much now as I did when I was a girl. I have a few books on castles (for children LOL!) They are pop up books full of details of castle life. I love the flower embellishment on the front door. The princess doll has good taste. Looking forward to what comes next!

  5. I like the window box, so beautiful. Hugs Kati

  6. La maceta para las flores es secillamente preciosa, me encanta al igual que el adorno.
    Genial el trabajo.

  11. Hi Caroline, It is always so much fun to watch your houses come alive. I can't wait to see this one finished to see how close my vision is to yours. I have enjoyed your previous post, Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend

  12. You wrote for your last sentence: "Nothing exciting yet." Are you kidding me? You are the FONT OF CREATIVITY! You make ME, who is totally uncreative, imagine exciting, magical things to come! :)

  13. Sometimes I just use mount card for the windows!
