I wanted to share with you the latest little house that’s going to market.
Isn’t it amazing, and fun, to see what can be made from old boxes and things that would otherwise go in the trash?
The cottage is called Glad-Greetings because of the little girl on the support column and her Glad Greetings.
Made from a cardboard box, this little cottage has wood floors, fabric walls and a beautiful lace “wall paper border.” It comes with handmade furniture.
There’s a fireplace in the corner, with a hearth and a little pot made from Sculpey and wire.
Cork and wire make for good curtain rods, and lace always makes pretty curtains.
The sleigh style bed boasts storage drawers underneath, of course covered in sparkles and with dainty wire-and-bead drawer pulls.
The little window sill is big enough for sitting things on, perfect for a little fairy who lives in the woods and collects things.
A chinese take-out container was cut in half and then covered in fabric to make two beautiful wingback chairs.
The containers were unused and probably would have ended up in the trash were it not for The Scrap Exchange.
I put in a little Kelly doll to illustrate the size of the furnishings.
A clock and little dishes made from Sculpey have started filling in the cupboard, made from a little gift box.
I hope you enjoyed your tour!
Enjoy this day.
