A Dream Complete!

In the early morning hours, as dawn approaches, the castle appears out of the gloom of night.

As the light strikes the east wall, it illuminates the details of the one story design. I didn't want to create the usual "castle". This is the results of daydreams, and imagination.

The railroad runs around the base of the castle. It stand above on it's rocky prom anode, measuring 20" tall, and 34" long X 21" wide. Perfect for a 16" doll with headroom {allowing for bonnets, feathers, and hairstyles.}.

The east side of the castle rises above a waterfall and pond.

The outcropping allows for a fireplace on the inside.

This is the inside as it is being completed.

The bricks helped to hold the walls in place as the glue dried. The opening is the fireplace, which I also tiled and grouted.

This is the fireplace complete with the mantel and surround. I think it turned out pretty nice. As if it was waiting for a fire to be laid.

The rest of the room, finished.

A completed view in the open end

{Well, I had to be able to get inside somewhere}

The turret room is now the music room.

Ellowyne is now at home in her castle. I think she is pondering what to call this magnificent new place, born of a dream in a garden.
