Little Village

Good Morning!! Oh my gosh, we have gone from cold, rainy days to hot, hot, hot!!! I have always said I wanted warm weather, but I do NOT want hot!! Give me a nice 70-75 degrees and a slight breeze... sigh... wishful thinking!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and gave thanks to our magnificant troops and veterans! I have three nephews in the military and my Dad was in WW2, so I have great respect for our brave men and women!!! We went to our camper this weekend and while it was a fun time, the flies were horrible and loved biting me, Kaitlyn and Matthew!! Now we are all itchy and red... yuck.

I wanted to show you some little houses I've been working on! I got the idea from Beatriz Jennings blog http://www.iralamija.blogspot.com She makes the sweetest little ones, hers are about 1/2" - 3" I think, mine are from 3"-5"... Bill cut them for me from scraps we had around, I love the randomness of them... so cute!! I made a set for my sister and my friend for their birthdays, the initials are last names and the numbers are for their house number!! They are a blast to make and I'm planning on a bunch for a craft show this fall that my friend is having!!! I have a lot of ideas... Christmas, Fall... and I do have two I made for me that are shabby chic... just haven't gotten to take a pic yet... when I do, I'll show you those... too sweet!! Well, Matthew has field day today so I need to get over to the school, hopefully the heat will hold off a little for the morning!!! Have a wonderful day!!!!

  5. I was introduced to this wonderful blog today -- my first ever blogging experience! And, to my delight, my birthday present was the topic of this blog!! I am enjoying my present very much & have had so many comments from friends who have seen my houses on display. They all love them! For any one reading this, you've probably figured out that I am Teri's sister. Her work is just fabulous & we (her family) can't wait to be the recipient of one of her creations! Love the "Spunky & Tadpole"!! Love you, too!


Thank you so much for visiting today! Your comments make me smile and I appreciate them more than you know!!!
