I have been busy again making a Christmas walnut shell cottage. This time one to sell hopefully on eBay. The listing should be up later tonight and I will then post a link here.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310805102137 This one has a Christmas tree inside the big bay window. On the back of the house there are lace curtains in the small windows.
It is too bad the gold star ornaments don't photograph very well, because they are holographic. They sparkle & wink in a rainbow of colors, even in low light. The snow glitter sparkles too but that also doesn't show in pictures. :-(
Yes! This is the same house. It is just a view of the back side.
Of course the house could be hung on a Christmas tree but a better idea would be to hang it in one of those domes for a pocket watch. Those are optically clear and have a hook on the top, inside the glass.
BTW...Later this week you should see what that hand I posted a picture of was all about. Now that it has arrived in it's new home in France. I will post a link to it here.
I love your tiny cottages Catherin!ReplyDelete

Il est magnifique Catherine , je suis ravie de le découvrir . C'est magique . Quel bonheur de s'imaginer les petits habitants . J'aime beaucoup l'arrière avec les petits volets rouges . Les détails sont si fins et si parfaits que l'on a du mal a se rendre compte de l'échelle . C'est un trés beau travail . Bonne chance pour ebay .ReplyDelete
HO , je n'avais pas vu le détail de la petite couronne sur la porte ! Tous les détails sont merveilleux ! J'adore ! Si seulement , on pouvait frapper à la porte ...TOC TOC !! Une petite voix nous répondrait " qui est la ?"ReplyDelete
Hi Catherine! I love the whimsey and the fairy-like story that this little house emits! All you have to do is to Look at it, and echos of Christmas carolers can be heard not very far away and the sound of fresh snow crunching underfoot as someone makes their way towards it. Then they open that lovely red front door which allows us just a moment to peek inside at the cozy warmth before they enter in and gently close the door behind them. ( Sigh) This little winter cottage is absolutely dreamy! :))ReplyDelete
This is so beautiful and detailed yet tiny. I love the glistening snow in contrast to the bright flowers at the entrance. Lovely.ReplyDelete
So beautiful, Catherine!! I LOVE it!!ReplyDelete
Hugs to you,
Es una auténtica maravilla! enhorabuena!ReplyDelete
