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.

End of the summer, Beach-house Give-away

This Sea Fairy House is part of my give-away.  I made a similar house for my Beach House and will set it into the garden when I make one, but for the winner of my give-away, I have set the sea fairy and her house into their own setting.  The setting is made of cardboard, Femo,seashells and green "grass".  So the fairy comes with her own garden, but her garden can be set into a one inch scale garden.  She is less than 1/4 inches tall, but seated on her mushroom, she is about 1/4 inches tall.

.The  house is made of card stock with five layers of gesso.  The shingles are made of tinny shells that I found in Rockport,  MA.
I have set the house into a tiny setting with a rock wall and garden( all made of Femo ,shells and miniature landscaping materials).  The fairy is the blur seen through her rose arch.
There is a small metal bench, which I have painted green, that I bought a long time ago at a show.  The gravel around the house is made of fine crushed shells.
Sea Shell Pillows...These four pillows are printed  and sewn by me and are included in my give-away.
I collected these shells on the beach of Rockport, MA.  I added some freshwater pearls.  The base of the wreath is Femo,   The wreath is part of my give-away, it is quite fragile.

Summer is over at my house, the children are back at school, the mornings are cool and the beach house has been removed from my kitchen island.  So to celebrate the end of a lovely summer, I am giving away things that remind me of it.  If you would like to be included in my give-away:
1) Leave a message on this post.
2) place the picture on my side bar(labeled"Beach-House Give-Away") on your blog...This optional, but would be greatly appreciated.
3) you need to be a follower.
4) the winner will be picked on October 1, 2012

If you have a mini beach house, send a picture to lucy_coles@netzero.net, and I will post the picture on my blog to help celebrate THE END OF SUMMER.
Good luck and I hope you enjoy the rest of the warm weather.
