Cottage Exterior

I know.  It has been ages since I have posted anything about this project, and I apologize.  The good news is that I have a great start on the exterior with only a few minor enhancements left on my list.  I have reached the point now where I go back to the interior and start filling it with the treasures I have collected, just for this project, for the past two years.  Hence, my room-by-room journey commences.

I am so pleased with how the front yard area of the cottage is turning out, though.  I love to use the same materials that railroad modelers/hobbyists use; such as trees and various types of ground turf.  Another favorite landscaping item of mine is Reindeer Moss; which I have used around the trees.  To be added later will be flower boxes, a few boulders, more moss and flowers.  And have I mentioned that I love the red door?!

The exterior of the cottage is wonderful and you have captured the feeling of an English stone cottage so well especially with the little walled garden! How delightful it all is! :D
