After a fair bit of ho-ing and hum-ing I managed to complete the task and the winner picked up her wee 'house' today. So, I can now safely show off what I've been working on :)
The inside is hollow and made a pefect (albeit small) space. Here you can see the roof top terrace where a someone has enjoyed a spot of tea.
Here's an overview of the inside. It's quite tight in there, but filled with nice little things.
A detail shot of a little table with a bowl of a rose petals and a clothes peg bench.
A fireplace with a gorgeous little cast iron cauldron and metal button she supplied.
Upstairs there's a match stick ladder leading to a sleeping loft.
You can see a stack of handmade miniature books and a birthday candle at the end of the bed.
Pretty things at the bottom of the ladder.
A matchbox bed with blankets made with vintage lacy bits. AND check out the size of that dolly. Believe it or not the limbs actually move! Plus, look at the mico-embroidery provided by the client.
It was such a pleasure creating this little space and a great honor to use little heirlooms to make it even more special.
