Cocoa Cottage frosted pink

Here is the latest from the Cocoa Cottage series. I love making these.
The cottage is a casting from my original sculpture. My husband makes a mold of my original and then he casts the reproduction out of a special mixture of clay and paper mache. The base is wood and the trees are wood sticks, wrapped in fabric that has been painted and glittered. The tops of the trees are out of paper clay. Each tree is adorned with a hand painted paper snowflake topped with a gem. I am currently working on some other cottages, who knows maybe a whole town.

Take care and thanks for letting me share!

Wonderful to "meet" you! Your cottage creation is charming and beautiful; I can't wait to see a village of them!
