Fairytale Storybook Cottage Dollhouse: So Whimsical!

Straight out of a storybook, this fairytale cottage started out as the Buttercup Dollhouse Kit. I customized it into a totally unique, one of a kind house.

Everything is handmade. First, I cut out more windows. I added a plaster and concrete interior and exterior. I changed the roof lines into whimsical ones. The main roof is thatched with coconut fibers and decorated with mosses. The little roof on the side are shingles I made by cutting and painting thick cardboard. This part of the house has crooked bricks and crooked shingles, just like the storybook ones!

Everything is hand carved, hand painted, and handmade. Signed, one of a kind, original.
