Further Disguised...

I am all tangled up in dead Rosemary branches this morning...

I am now thinking outside the box...

I decided that there needed to be some trees that stuck out from the box as well as the ones that were dimensional on the corners...

I went and hunted down some Rosemary branches that I have been saving from the last time I trimmed the bushes...

I started out thinking that I would just make small bushes on the sides of the building...

Then I opened the top of the box too.
 Some of them will reach over the roof line and mingle with the string tree branches...

Yup, I let Tessie and Kota out of the workroom... It's amazing how cooperative they are being now...
Here, you can see that the new trees stand out from the old ones.  I am still going to have to do some more painting on the walls.  I think that I can still do it around the new trees.  Needs more yellow!

In other news, I made the pages of the Doll's House Magazine this month.

They gave my blog a really nice review. Thank you Doll's House Magazine!

At first I thought that they got my blog page wrong.  I didn't realize that it changes to ".co.uk" when in England.  Here it is just .com.  When I tried it, I still got my blog, so now I know that different countries have different endings for my address.  Interesting...

Anyway, I had better get back to building trees now.

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. Congratulations on being featured in Doll's House Magazine. Well done.
The latest additions to the Forest House are interesting. What's up with Daisy?

Phyllisa, Daisy left in the time machine a few days ago. She is still unhappy that I haven't finished the kitchen of the cottage. All she said before she left was, "I'm going someplace where they have a kitchen that is ready for cooking." She could be any place in the world and at any time.

I guess I should take the hint and finish her kitchen!

Woo hoo! That's neat that they put the blog in Doll's House. Do the trees still smell nice like rosemary or does it wear off?

Unfortunately, the scent of the rosemary goes with the leaves. It is no more!

Giac! You are the one to be congratulated! when I opened the magazine, the first thin I saw was a four page spread on "Dewell Manor"! Really outstanding!

Congratulations Casey! It's Fabulous that your blog was featured in the U.K. magazine. I also want to say what an Terrific job you are doing on the landscaping. I LOVE the way you are using the additional Rosemary wood to bulk out the front of this forrest dwelling. Everything is looking Terrific!
