The Rose Cottage

This shop was created using the same basic techniques as Janie’s Fine China. It was made as a swap with Anita McNary Hayes. She has been quite an inspiration to me and is responsible for starting the MSAT Microminis group (now on as She continually keeps us going with new kits and words of wisdom and praise. I was deeply honored that she asked me to make her this shop.

In addition to how I made Janie’s shop, I added some extras to this one. The base is made from a paint finish sample card. These cards are available at hardware stores. This one made a great flagstone design. The lamp base is a bead and the shade is paper. The vines are made by gluing bits of landscape foam along a line.
