An artistic display for my hearth

Recommended Posts

When I was 5 we moved into a new house, where I found an old childrens' book from the 40's with all sorts of stories and illustrations. My favorite picture was of a chicken coop house. When the book had fallen into tatters from age, I salvaged that picture and framed it. A few weeks ago I  got the idea of making a display to put in my empty fireplace based on the chicken coop.  I changed the chicken coop into a house, and it's about 1:24 scale, but it's not a dollhouse. The first picture shows it in my fireplace surrounded by painted pinecones and posterboard evergreens. I took the second picture when I had to take the house back up to my workroom because somehow I had bent the rooster weathervane trying to set up the display. More pictures are on My One Inch World, including the inspirational 1940's illustrations.
