sunflower cottage....

I finally finished a lot of painting and oiling in the garden last week.
And we've decided on a name.
It's been a long road to completion....I can't believe my task of painting and oiling took so long. *sigh* For those of you who I teased some months ago with the start of this project....you have been most patient......or you have forgotten.....either way I can now proudly announce.....

Sunflower Cottage is complete!

Would you like to come and visit?

Just ring the bell.....
And there is sure to be a couple of little people just waiting to show you around.

There is an internal slide right down to the vege patch......

And lots of decorative timber touches inside......

We could make you some herbal tea to drink from silver cups.......

Or you could just lay back, relax and chat.
It's a good place for that.
There is a built in timber lounge that is the perfect Mama size......

You may just like to stay a while......

We're pretty happy with our new little cottage here with it's birds eye view of the garden and ample space to play, create and dream......

Pretty clever Grandad isn't he....our Roger. We are very fortunate.

That is so lovely, I too thought about it a couple of days ago, I knew it couldn't be a henhouse, and now I know.
take care

This is so beautiful! You children (and YOU) are lucky to have this magical haven. I wish I could ring on that bell and linger awhile over tea (in enchanted goblets no less). So, so wonderful- good job all!

I have collected a cute retro teapot that is smaller than average, but haven't got anywhere with the cubby.

Wow! I was looking for the star you mentioned that you had made, and stumbled across this. My oh my what an amazing little cottage. Great name too. I love sunflowers! We are working on a little wooden playhouse for our girls. It came as a kit and is much smaller. This is lovely. :)
