    The reason for the name "Overhill Shire" ... a Hobbit-ish looking fireplace.... I like this fireplace and will probably do something like it again in another build.

    Roof beams and a peek at the lean-to addition I added to this little house.

    I just like this shot... and you can see the addition here

  4. From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    Still needs some touch ups that I overlooked until after I placed a lot of stuff inside. The camera shows everything; will fix later.

    Rock candy chimney

    From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    I finished the chimney top. The exterior is about done except for some touch ups and simple landscaping when I get a foundation board for it.
  6. From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    In my interpretation of the story, the cannibal witch is too primitive for a bedroom or a bed. I want the upper chamber, her room, to resemble a bird house, because I imagine her to shift between human form and the form of a crow, a bird that does devour the young of other birds. So I have a craft store nest for her, and I was planning to use some dyed black feathers I bought and a skull and bones from a plastic skeleton, to set the grisly scene. But it looks too fake, so I'll wait until I have real bones from a chicken and some natural feathers. There's just her little treasure chest and a stool from a circle of wood I cut so far. I left the circle windows open like the hole in a birdhouse, and there's a ladder and trapdoor connecting her upper room to the rest of the house.

    Even though it's not completely a gingerbread house, I thought it should have some gingerbread cookie parts. I struggled with the puff paint icing (I'm not much of a cake decorator) but after scraping and cleaning it off each piece 4 or 5 times I decided this is about the best I can do. I hope it gives the right effect; just don't look too closely.

    Sugar windows

    From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    I replaced the peppermint stripe candy canes on the witch's house with chocolate, cherry, and cream-striped posts (the cherry doesn't show much but it makes the colors mellower) and made the pure-white springerle a little more golden, and I like the colors better now. It still wanted some touches of red, but it's not as Christmassy as before. The parts that look black in the photo are really dark chocolate. The sugar wndows are made out of thin glass and superfine glitter.

    It looks yellower in the lamplit photo I took at night, but the colors are more muted now and I'm happier with them.

    It's a scary story

    From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    I took a slice from a branch of wood outside my door to make a primitive butcher's block for her. It's a little too tall but I'll fix it.

    Table and benches

    From the album: Hansel & Gretel Buttercup

    I thought I might be going too far with the Tudor look, which wasn't exactly what I first envisioned for this house. But as Havana Holly says, the house knows what it wants to be ...

  13. Hello All! I've been lurking the forums and so many wonderful albums and blogs for months now, but thought it was time I actually joined! I began my journey down the rabbit hole of dollhouses and miniatures about 6 months ago and I still have a lot of learning to do.. hopefully some of the awesome people here can help me out! I just started a Buttercup Kit, which I'm attempting to make some alterations to. Hopefully the pictures show up correctly, but basically my thought was to mimic a Glencroft style stair/fire place along the left wall. I'm also thinking about adding a Primrose addition to the right (I have too many big ideas, I need more space!). So far I've just used mat board to give me an idea of how everything will look. Also, I think I'm going to recess the front door area to make room for a little porch. Just wondering what everyone thinks, am I overdoing it? Also, if I move forward with this plan, does anyone have any tips on joining the new pieces (eventually made of plywood, I'm guessing?) to the original structure? Sorry for such a long introduction and so many questions! https://ibb.co/dJoCG5 https://ibb.co/e0K8pQ
  14. I got a half scale Buttercup. My plan is to make it into Luna Lair, which will be a home for a crabby, old owl. I'm planning to dry fit sometime this weekend. Anyone want to play? Hoot!

    Tudor Cottage

    From the album: Tudor Cottage, 1:24 Buttercup Bash

    I've finished the roof for now. I'll be coming back to touch up colors on individual roof "tiles" and eventually will be adding moss to the rock and roof. But for now, the roof is finished!

    This is a very lightly bashed Buttercup I just finished.

    Here is a better view of the lean-to addition... this little space added just enough to add a little kitchen-ish area.

    The bedroom.... I divided the upstairs to allow for a very tiny little bathroom.
