The Cottage is Finished!  I think it turned out really nice.  I went to the dollar store the other day and they had their Christmas stuff out in which I bought the variety of trees I put around the house when I did the landscaping.  The trees from the dollar store were covered in snow, so I sprayed on some glue and dipped each tree in some green landscaping greenery.  I think the trees turned out really nice for only around $6 compared to buying trees that look like them at the craft store could have cost me $40 for as many trees as I used..  I wanted the inside of the Cottage to look like it was built 200 or 300 years ago, and having to cook meals in the fireplace with the hanging pot on the mantel, and the old fashion hand water pump in the kitchen and the ladder to the attic bedroom.  I think this was one of my longer project in which I spent around 55 hours to complete it.  I hope you all enjoy the completed Cottage.  Have a Wonderful Week!  

I think the little street lamps are my favorite things on the outside and gives the house a cozy warm look. 

I didn't get great close up pictures of the windows that I built around the house and to be able to get the diamond window trim the windows had in the picture,  I searched through Home Depot and found Rain Gutter Covers that was to the scale I was looking for.  They were pretty heavy duty metal and I just used some heavy duty cutters to cut. 

The living room is my favorite in the house.  My friend Stephanie from Wyoming made this little Jack-O-Lantern that I bought from her at the miniature show.  I love it!
