I am finally undertaking a new project that has been rolling around in my head for quite a while. I am re-creating Kate Winslet's cottage from the movie The Holiday, in half-inch scale. The balsa wood frame is under construction right now, and will be covered in Paperclay stone work. I chatted with my friend Johanna about it tonight, and we came to the conclusion that the best thing to do is finish and furnish the interior, and seal it up just like a real house, rather than leave it open like a doll house. It will have to have lighting in order to see the interior, and I love the idea of being able to peer inside but not access the inside. Does that make sense? Like a little treasure box.
Thank you to Catherine from Kilmouski & Me for encouraging me to undertake this miniature endeavor. I will post pics of my progress as I go.
