So Many Ideas.











I am beginning to understand why people end up having more than one doll house. Once you choose a style you have eliminated everything else.

How cute is this! I would love to have it 1: 1 or 1: 12 scale. Something about the texture of the stone reminds me of barnacles. I love the shape, height and number of chimneys.

Oct 31, 2011 Yes! I have added several more houses lately.

  2. Catherine, I can totally relate to your dilemma! You will need more than one dollhouse! I could move into this one so fast! It is so sweet! Looks like the perfect cozy house to live in!

  3. 1:1! If I couldn't have that I'd settle for 1:12. But definitely 1:1 is preferred :-)!

  10. It looks English and it looks like a type of flint stone...though don't quote me! You can buy the Tudor chimneys at fairs overhere. I've seen a kit similar and if you did a kit bash I'm sure you could create this in 1/12th scale. ;o)

  11. I think it is somewhere in the Cotswold's. I am constantly looking at cottages both in England and France. I have saved them all in a folder for inspiration. I am hoping I will fall in love with a style. Sadly, I don't find many pictures of cottages in England that are detached. It seems like so many of them share walls.

  12. The cottage you posted is the "Double Cottage" and is part of a group on an estate "Blaise Hamlet". They are now owned by the National Trust.

    It is of the "model village", cottage orne, picturesque cottage, era. In the late 1800's many of these type of structures were often built on estates to house the worker tenants. No landowner wanted to walk by and look at hovels.

    My dollhouse business name in the state of Wa. is "Cottage Orne". Might just be because I like them so much. The "Acorn Cottage" you like so much was designed as one.
