Fantasy Houses

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 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"
  ........AND I HAVE BEEN SO
BUSY MAKING LITTLE HOUSES THAT
I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO KEEP UP
MY WEB-SITE!

SHOP.
