I entered it in a few art shows and got a blue ribbon at the County Fair. When I look at it now I see how lame it was, but for a 17 year old kid, I guess it's not too bad. I hand cut all those little scalloped strips for the roofing (mainly in my History class) with little fingernail scissors. It took me months to make and I even made a glass case to hold it. It still sits in a cupboard in my living room.
When we planned our house remodel I made this model of how the new house would look. I used the elevations and glued them to cardboard, then colored, cut, and glued it together. It was a great aid and reference tool as we made decisions about the details and our house actually came out pretty much like this. And this.
This end of the kitchen looks exactly like a photo I took here but now it has roses and a trellis.
So it's no surprise that I'm once again making little houses. Here is my latest glitter house. It's a little stone cottage with a thatched roof and a snowy hedge. I am having so much fun with these little houses here Amongst The Oaks. How about you? How are your Christmas projects coming along?
