Evalina Rose and her little sister Posy Anna are the main characters of a series of children's stories that I am writing. In this blog I will share the final stages of crafting their half scale house--Honeysuckle Cottage--and the miniature stuff that will make up the settings of their stories.

A Sure Sign of spring

A pair of robins are nesting in a bush right out side of my window.  I felt  a need to reproduce a nest for my miniature rose bush.  Unfortunately I burned the parents that I made to care for this little nest and will have to make a new pair this weekend.


  1. The cottage looks great and I can't wait to see Mama bear dressed.

  2. The cottage is beautiful and rose bush with the nest is just stunning. I love the knitted bear.
    Hugs, Drora

  3. Happy Birthday. You did great job on the brick and stone work, it looks great. Mama bear is lovely.
    A big mini hug.

  4. Just found your blog Lucy. Your knitting is fabulous, I have spotted a wonderful intarsia sweater and the little bears are so lovely! The cottage looks great!

    For some reason your blog is very big on my screen, I have to scroll left and right to see everything. I don't know how to adjust it.

  5. Thank you for your comment.
    You have a very cosy blog Lucy. The house looks beautiful and the roses are amazing. Great work.


  6. Happy Birthday!
    I love the stones on your house, it looks so real.
    Your mama bear is gorgeous, I wonder how you're going to dress it.

    Las rosas son increíbles y delicadas y mamá osa es una maravilla.
    Un abrazo
