Happy Friday everyone !
You know, as huge as Bloglandia is - it's really a small world after all.................
You come up with an idea - and you're all excited about it because it's soooo original - and you happily start working on it -
And then - before it's finished - lo and behold - someone else has done it - and done it far better then you could ever hope to - and suddenly you're completely deflated.
Plus you look like a Blogger Plagiarist...................
But I swear to you - I pinky swear in fact - that I had already started this before I saw " the great one "
( and I'm only going to show you " the great one " at the end of this post - because maybe it won't make mine look so pitiful.
A stone cottage fairy house !
Now if that's not the cutest thing ( well actually it's not - it's not the cutest one by far - as you'll later see )
but I'll just trudge along and show you how I did mine anyway - and really if you had nothing to compare it with I just know you'd fall in love with it.............
I started off with a little box ( I don't know what you call these - but they hang on the wall actually )
and a fence post newel that I also had on hand ( which when you're in fairy mode looks very much like a roof )
See what I mean?
I applied " No More Nails " as the grout - but any thick glue would work
And then I added small stones ( purchased at the dollar store ) randomly
While that was setting - I painted the roof black
For the front of the house I simply drew the shape of a door
and placed the rocks all around it - painted the door black - and added a little rhinestone type of thing
( that came from a pair of flip flops LOL ) for a door knob
I painted a french window on the other side -
and here's the little fairy house I was so proud of for about a day - I mean, really, how much cute can you pack into a post, right?
apparently a lot more than I can -
here's a photo of " the great one "
Is that over the top amazing or what? This should be a feature on I WANNA live there Wednesday for crying out loud !
Take a hop over to the Feral Turtle to see how Karen made this - it's incredible !
This miniature house real estate business is a tough one - and that's all I'm going to say about that.
Shingle roof? Glass windows? Dormers?
Phfffft................there's not a lantern to be found - sadly lacking I'd say.
You can see the rest of the village's houses HERE & HERE
You all have a wonderful weekend ♥
I'll be at these parties !!!
