Miniature cottages and other cottage projects for dollhouses, roomboxes and dioramas


Where is YOUR cottage? What does it look like? A rustic charmer à la Miss Marple, an alpine retreat, or a dream "cottage" like Campobello, Canada, where Roosevelt (FDR) summered? Do you call it a cabin, camp or a chalet?  By the lake, in a campsite, in the woods? Does it have a beach?
