"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

Church and Cottage

I started making these churches and cottages last year. I was sooo lucky to have them in a shop that a friend owned. She kept me VERY busy! I LOVED IT!!! But now She has closed her doors to be with her family more! Such a great MOM and Wife. We all have to make our OWN choices.
To bad there is not a master plan (well, the great I AM has that).

Church and Cottage

I love making these sweet pieces of architicture! The cottage is a version of my dream home. Of course once you step inside it would miraculously hold all of the rooms I wished for.

Petit Church

I have made more of these petit Churches again this year! So sweet on the tree or placed around. They make nice gifts too! The Gorgeous Deer are from Amanda! I gathered them up last spring!

The Work Table

This is a view of my work table in my sweet and peit studio! It really looks great with all of the projects and supplies going on up there! These are new petit cottages for this year. They will be available in several colors. I am planing on designing a new house or two for you to chooose from and Tulle Christmas Wreaths !!! Very excited about those also! Back to being an elf! :)

Mary, Your wee houses are WONDERFUL! Truly, I have long loved little "putz" houses, and yours would rank among my faves! I've been silently visiting your blog for a while. Thanks for the inspiration! I won't be architecting any tiny houses soon... too daunting! Will you be offering any on ETSY? - Amy B

Oh Mary! I just must have one or two or maybe three of these! I have been dreaming of them ever since I saw my mom's and Meg's last year. I will be watching the etsy shop closely as I know they will fly off the shelves. Have a wonderful holiday! I sure do miss being able to utilize your endless talent!
