Barb...

it's cute as a button!...and that vintage Santa is the crowing touch in place of the tower...wish you would consider posting a "family portrait" of all the "minis" you've made...

So when we were researching the Tower house, Peter had sent Lynn and myself the following picture.

It was similar to the one that Howard had made the pattern for.
So I Changed up the front rooms and made a different tower.

Below is where it's at now.

I still need to add the trim and build the base and fence.

My order from Peter for the required windows came today.

I need to make a custom middle window. as it has a cross on it.
And I'm working out the interesting trees that the new house has.

But I'm getting there slowly.

Here is my reproduction of the tri tower castle. The castle is covered with large grain sand, with some glitter mixed in. The turquois also has some white gravel mixed in.
The base and step is the same white grave with some fine black glass glitter. The top of the base is coconut.
For the tree I used a white bottle brush tree, some green floral wire and brown floral tape. I have some pictures that show the steps.
Final I added some snow using the natural artist sponge;
Thanks Howard for a great patterns and suggesting to use the sponge to add the snow.
Pete thanks for the windows, door and coconut.
