This item is ready and available for shipping.

In the heart of the Devon countryside you’ll often find tiny cottages. Made of cob they date back hundreds of years. My own home, Penny Pot Cottage, is the inspiration behind the one featured here.

Entirely hand built, the structure is a mix of paper mache (papier machè if you’re old school like me!), my own recipe of paper pulp, paper clay, then painted and sealed.  Decorated with paper clay flowers and moss which trails the walls.  A tub of flowers sits on the door step next to the welcoming mat which reads ‘HOME”.  The windows on each side allow the glow of the fairy lights (included) to really illuminate the cottage. The structure is hollow, and houses the fairy lights, although they are not fixed in place so you can replace batteries, add another set or replace for coloured lights.

The Cottage measures 25cm L x 20cm W x 20cm H.

This is an ornament designed to bring intrigue and joy to to the observer.   It will look fantastic sitting on a shelf or sideboard, or would make a beautiful gift for someone special.
