I am starting a new venture of making little houses. I will have these for sale at my shows and will also list them on Etsy when available.
I am going to post several photos on this page and I will organize my website in the coming days.
The price range is $195-$250 for the little cottages. These are made from mixed media and are about 3/4 scale to fit the Fairy House furniture or items that you make. I had a dollhouse and miniature shop back in the 80's and I used to make the large and heavy wooden houses in 1/12 scale. I was making my cloth dolls at the same time and when the doll business became too large for both houses and dolls, I sold my miniature shop and made dolls for the next 30 years! I finally made the dolls that I wanted to make and decided that it was time to try some new things. I made little fairies and elves out of polymer clay. I repainted Monster High dolls. And I started making Fairy Houses out of paper clay last winter. I loved making the little woodland dwellings and then one day I saw a wonderful tiny miniature house online and something clicked! So I went up into the attic and brought down dozens of boxes of parts, furniture and just miscellaneous items from 35 years ago when I had packed them up. I went into the basement and hunted up all of my tools and supplies and I set up a workroom to make some little houses. I ordered some of the dollhouse kits and made up two of these and then I just started making the little houses out of cardboard, foamboard, glue, paper and whatever worked to complete the construction. And here is my first one! I sold the second one that I made and I am working on 2 more, 1 is almost finished, 2nd is halfway done and I just started the 3rd one tonight! The size is 7" X 7" for the basic house. The base is 7 1/2" X 10"
