Ruby's Primrose Cottage


Recommended Posts

I know I have been posting photos on another thread of our progress but it is finished and I thought its own thread was warrented!

Her birthday is tomorrow.

we spent the day doing finishing touches. and when she came she brought her birthday gift from a coworker and we were amazed that it went into her landscaping like we had meant for it to be there all along!

Y'all outdid yourselves with the beadwork! (You know what a bead-o-holic I am!) The stained glass turned out SO well! The annual Bead Show was in town this past weekend & I crawled out of sickbed to go. They had a few skull beads but none that would sit flat on their mandibles like your candleholders do. Unfortunately onl the top half of the picture wants to download for me this AM, so I know I'm missing countless more details.

Holly the beading is those ribbons of beads trim you can buy.

although this is a Wizards house we really liked the effect!

we made a HOM chair out of the same fabric as the bed and a crate from matchsticks for mushrooms and such. no photos because the kid had my camera today.

she is going to my miniature club meeting this Sat...and I am taking photos there...we are doing a project that will finish this little house off nicely to go with her to a new beginning!

NOW on to "The Mary Jane"

How did you make the scrolls? Is the paper tea stained?

I have some fancy end toothpicks that I glued and wrapped with small strips of regular copy paper on the end Ruby attached a bead. painted the handles gold and

"washed" the paper with brown acrylic paint....turned out better than expected!

I have a new photo of the downstairs with the finished HOM chair I made!

not happy with the chair for a few reasons but it still looks ok for the house and Ruby was happy so that is all that matters.....

NOW I am officially finished with this project!
