As you may remmber, I have been kind of snowbound with the weather in my area of Pennsylvania.  So since I was inside, I worked on the inside of the cottage.  I have mostly completed it.  I have to get some kind of threshold for the slate entryway, get the light on the side table plugged in, put in the baseboard, fix the chandelier, and of course add some kick kacks.  But for the most part it is done.  I really like the light, airy feel that the place presents.  If I had a cottage in lifesize I think I just might decorate it this way. 

I can't wait until I get the grass for the garden and the resin for the pond.  I made my own fish, a little bigger than the one my son made, and have that in the pond.  I have to get some pastels to shade them as they are too yellow, but for my first attempt I think they work.  I also made a little birdhouse and a shepard's hook that it hangs on, which you can see to the left of the picture.  I found the house at PrintMini and glued that onto balsa wood and then constructed it with an eye pin from my bead collection and it looks kind of cute. 

So now I am completely dug out and will have to go to work tomorrow.  Oh well, a holiday is coming on Monday and there's the weekend, so maybe I'll get some other things done.  I have to wait until some more supplies arrive, though.


  1. The cottage is looking really pretty and peaceful, I love it.

  2. It looks so pretty- your fish looks great! I love the little birdhouse- what a perfect touch for the yard!
