To the house I left behind....

Just a few months ago I moved from the States down to Belize. I moved here because I needed to get warm and I was ready for a change. I am loving it, and thrilled to be here. However, when I made the move, lots of stuff got left behind, in storage. My many dollhouses were among those things.

Now, I need to explain here that even though I love doing the interior of dollhouses and room boxes, my true love is the exterior. I love creating all the plants and outdoor spaces. The expression that "Only God can make a tree." came as a personal challenge to me. NOT that I claim to be God, but I thought it would be fun to see if I too could create, in a "mini" way, all the outdoor beauty around our homes.

In this blog today, I am going to pay homage my favorite house exterior that is waiting for me in storage.

As you can see, I go to great lengths for detail. I always say that the difference between a good house and a great house is in the detail. If you can't envision yourself stepping into the scene that you have created, well then, it just isn't done! Keep going until you can't tell if the pictures are of a real house or a doll sized house.

My "green house" gave me the chance to explore and show off my plant making skills.

.......and yes, that is "Audrey" from "Little Shop of Horrors" in the corner of my greenhouse. No one ever said there couldn't be a touch of whimsy!
