I have been busy making another nutshell cottage. Cutting the braces for the roof (over the front door) was a bit tricky. They are about 6 mm long and had to have a 45 degree angle cut on both ends.
This house will have a furnished bedroom on the second floor. Visible through the octagon 360 degree surround windows. Just one problem... I am totally out of acorn caps in all sizes.
While I wait for supplies to fall, I thought I would make some stick pins using the front entrance of this cottage design. They will be just over one inch tall. I thought it would be fun to wear on the lapel of a wool jacket with jeans.
I want to thank all of you who entered the Nutshell cottage Give Away. It was great fun to read all the fabulous names you thought of for it. I was really surprised at the number of entries since the piece is not a 1: 12 dollhouse miniature. ;-)
This morning I used the random number generator to select a winner from my 594 eligible followers who named the house and left a comment.
Congratulations Debora!!! http://petitpunt.blogspot.com/ Who named the house Nutty's Observatory. I will email you through your blog for your address details.
Welcome to my blog!
I am artist and a metalsmith. I have always loved miniatures and dollhouses. My interest in making miniatures is not restricted to the metal work I do. This year I plan to design and build a dollhouse.
I do not sell the miniatures I am making right now while I am trying to build my own collection.
Who is Kilmouski? ... He's my cat. And he sits right next to me no matter how many hours I work.
