Last weekend Delia and I went to an estate sale on Sunday. I had been the day before and had come back after stuff went to half off hoping this lovely turkey platter would still be there. No such luck. There was a lot of doll stuff and Delia was able to pick up some neat furniture for her Barbies. I almost walked out empty handed, but then spotted a shelf full of wooden houses and structures. I started to think and decided for $1.50 I could buy a few and find something to do with them. I am kicking myself now...I should have bought them all.
After the inspiration of Bethany I got started. I painted the entire house black and orange (it could have been an Oregon State Beaver house too). I then embellished with Martha's glitter. Love that stuff. Next, I added images off of The Graphics Fairy to the windows (popped them out first). These ladies were in he category of Women and entitled Gypsy Ladies I believe.I added some other embellishments as well. Finally, I drilled a hole in the bottom and stuffed the lights into the house.
It is to get a good picture of this baby when it is lit up (with my photography skills).
I love my little house and may have to make a neighbor for it
