Hello everyone : ) I will continue with the tour of my cottage.  First  i have named this cottage " Fáilte Teachín " which means Welcome cottage in Irish : ) so welcome to my tour. This time its the sitting room. This is where Bridget ( yes i named her though still dont have a her lol ) sits  if she wants to read quietly or has guests which she often has. This is an overall picture of the room.
I made most of the things in this room. I also have some gifts from friends here.
I made the fireplace shelves books and cushions. The fender is made from an earring one of those big loopy ones. I still need to do more books and a few other little things  for this room.

The clock is made from an earring and a button and i love it though i now see its not straight lol.

The door gave me trouble : D it does not open and only showed on the outside except for the window I felt it needed a door even if it didnt open so I made a frame.  I tried painting the door but the white didnt show so I used a piece of white leatherette that I had I also put some acetate between to make the windows. I am pretty pleased with it.

I also made the sofa my first :) The cameo is an old brooch and the little coffee table is from a necklace.

I do hope you like. I had a lot of fun with this house and I loved putting some of my many treasures in it.
Have a great rest of week. 
Hugs to all my wonderful friends.
