Miniature Misty Forest Fairy House update 5-14-12

Getting closer to done, just finishing up the yard before I can start the final thing-the roof.  I thought I'd show some shots of it in progress like usual for those people who are interested in the building process and like to try their own similar projects.  I see we need to have another give away because of reaching another 50 followers, so I'll have to think about what to do there.  I'm really busy right now so I'm not sure what exactly I'll have time for but there will be something.  Stay tuned to details on that.  Welcome everyone new!  Good to have you on board :)  And thanks so much for all of your nice comments guys and girls!  I love 'em and read them all.  I just wish I had time to respond to everyone of them.  School's getting out in 2 days and I think my current madness around here will just get worse!  Summer here means lots of extra kids and feeding and taking care of everyone and everything!  And we have quite a lot of ground here to take care of as well, nearly a city block to maintain-yikes.  Mowing the grass takes two of us a full day.  And one of us is on a tractor!  So bear with me if my posts here get a little behind schedule.  I work when I can on minis but there never seems to be enough time in my day.  And I'm back to work on my house again as well, working on my kitchen ceiling right now.  Anyways, explanations aside, here's what I've got done on my fairy house:

A sweet little picture of a frog couple buried in the moss in front of the antique key.

I ordered this lovely antique skeleton key from England.  It's gorgeous!  I thought it would look great laying in the greenery as though it was a lost key the fairies had taken to their home.  Perhaps the key to the secret garden like in the book :)

As you can see, the roof is still removable which was nice for pictures so it wasn't so dark inside.  And when it's on you can't tell it can be removed which is good.  It doesn't ruin the look of the house.  Hopefully the next time I post here this will be done.  It's larger than what I usually ship so I'll have to go to the post office to find out what it'll be before it will be available for sale.  I think it's turning out pretty so far.  I can't wait to see how water effects turn out on the roof shingles!  That should be quite a challenge :)

I'll be back with info on the next giveaway as well as new pictures of the finished fairy house.  Hugs everyone!

  2. Wow, this is amazing! You made everything yourself? I love how you took small branches and used them so creatively! This just goes to show how much one can find for making miniatures, if one looks in the right place :)
    Can't wait to see more!

  3. Wow, that is gorgious!!!! I love your cretivity! I absolutely love the waterfeature and the dragonfly on top of the door. The skeleton key is lovely too and your use of the natural materials....very well done.
