A bit of sunshine and the UK’s Pippa Chandler is already envisioning a hamlet of beach hut beads.

Her tiny polymer cottages measure 2cm high x 1cm wide with caned doors and windows and textures accentuated with acrylic paint.

With the kids back in school and the house quiet, Pippa’s muse hid for a while. Read her blog to see how she coaxed inspiration out of hiding for this little seaside adventure.

            The little beach huts are just precious and so appealing! I love the antiqued weathered pastel palette.

                I am fortunate enough to have several of Pippa’s pieces in my collection of favorite artists’ work. Her attention to detail and her finishing is amazing. Congratulations on the PCD feature, Pippa!

                          I have a question I would LOVE answered by as many people as I could get to answer, please. How many people have multiple crafts/arts they do and also if you do other crafts/arts, do you sell work from all your crafts/arts as well?

                            The beach property houses are charming and make you feel the ocean breeze.
