It's a dollhouse in 1" scale. I have been messing about with miniatures for about 20 years now. My first dollhouse was built for my pre-school age son. I called it the 'Teddy Bear Cottage'. It was the Sugarplum dollhouse kit by Greenleaf. It is stored away in the basement with many fond memories of my adorable babies and my humble beginnings in the world of minis.
This charming American Cotswold Bedside Cottage took 103+ hours over the duration of a month to build. It required patience and tenacity to complete. I took my time making this piece because I wanted it to exhibit heirloom, quality workmanship. Plus, I wanted it to have everything! This cottage is Lauren's work place and think place. Because every dollhouse has a story! Lauren is an artist. This cottage includes a short story about Lauren and her passion for art and the Cotswold. The book, 'Lauren's Cottage' will also contain exploration of the Cotswold's of England and a pictorial of how this dollhouse was built.
This dollhouse will be available for purchase at etsy.com. It will also include my book, 'Lauren's Cottage'. This is not my first book - nor my first work of art.
