The Old Country House

As usual I'm super busy working on tons of projects! One is my new dollhouse "The Old Country House.
The downstairs is coming together perfectly. I usually write down all the details and finishes before I start.
Then I second guess myself. But I decided to stick with what was written down. And I like it!

I'm also writing the 1:6 scale book. 

And I got some gifts I won too!  

This is from Alisha at Minifanaticus. I loved this potting bench as soon as I saw it on her blog.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I read she was giving it away.
It's so shabby chic perfect!
Alisha asked me what else I would love to have. That was easy! I love the drippy candles! 
I don't play with that kind of clay/sculpy. So to have Alisha give some candles to me was heaven!
Aren't they the most perfect things!
Thank you so much Alisha! I love your creations so much! They look so incredible! Don't forget to visit her at http://minifanaticus.blogspot.com/ if you have not yet seen her work.
Alright, back to work for me! Thanks so much for checking in! Have a wonderful day!

  7. Oh Caroline, that potting bench is adorable! You are so lucky. I love all the little pots & plants too. I've actually made several mini birdhouses. They're a lot of fun to make. I've made some on poles & some without. The candles are really cool too. I can't wait to see the finished country house. I'm a country girl through & through. Yee-haw! Lol. Keep the updates coming.

  8. Your little house is darling, as always! How awesome that you won the potting bench, it's adorable:) Love the drippy candles too. You've really got me hooked on all this mini stuff, I'm starting my 5th mini today:)

    All the best

  10. Talosta tulee upea!!
    Oi, mitä ihania lahjoja☺

  11. Alicia does amazing work. The potting bench is perfect. I like the tipped over pot. I have the dollhouse on hold for the moment as I work on photo albums for the last grand daughter. I have 5 grans and am on the last scrapbook. I am, however, going to make a mason jar type light as I you did in your Apothologie (did I get it right?) house. I loved the light. Mine will be in the attic and will be one jar. I can't believe how easy they are to make. I am thankful for your inspiration.

  12. Esa casita de campo ya tiene un aspecto maravilloso... me encanta ese estilo. Y qué diré de tus regalos? Son una maravilla! Encajan tan bien, además, en los ambientes que tú creas! Felicidades por el libro, un gran proyecto! :)

  13. Congratulations on your fantastic win. Alicia's work is gorgeous she is a very talented lady. I love your new house having said that I love ALL your houses :-D I love seeing your houses develop and come to life.
    Hugs Maria
