Close Knit Community

A very close-knit community with a bird's eye view. 4 of these houses will be on their way to Canada this week. The other 5 will be put in Lollishops when it opens in Nov. (~~)

All our houses in a row!
These 3 were hand cut and assembled by me and I made the little pink tree on the left!

The Church was purchased at Michaels and the little house was hand cut and assembled by me. Dont you just love the dormer?

Yummy Colors...It's hard to see but there is a pink bird perched on the rooftop of the pink house.

The Aqua and Turquoise one on the left I think is my favorite, if I had to pick just ONE. I do favor the pink tree though.
Thanks for stopping by


I have been tagged by Gail from http://littlebeachdesigns.blogspot.com/. Now I have to post 7 random things about myself and pick 7 bloggers to tag.

1. I have never flown on an airplane.
2. I "collect" blue colored field stones for my flower garden.
3. I have trouble committing to wall colors besides white.
4. I love to bake sweets.
5. Halloween is my favorite holiday.
6. I have walked 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk. (one of my proudest moments)
7. One of my pet peeves is: the way people drive in parking lots...like it's a free-for-all and the rules of the road are void!

These are the 7 people that I am tagging: Enjoy(~~)

Sunday Finds

Such a gorgeous Fall? day in Indiana. Honestly it is 80 degrees and that is not our usual weather, so I am considering it a bonus day. Made a quick trip to our local flea market and found these:

The 5 books were $2.00 and they are from the 1950's. The illustrations are the cutest. Three vintage ribbons for 1.00. The sweet baby carriage ornament was 10 cents. I think I am going to change the pillow and the ribbon to pink:) The glass thingy was 25 cents and has an aluminun stirrer. I have never seen anything like it before.

Happy Fall

Glittery Cuppie Cake Ornaments

Don't they just look yummy? I really like these. Small in stature but make a very pretty statement for your tree or use as a package topper! They are 2" x 2" . Hand cut by me from recycled chipboard and they are very light in weight...See no calories...well you would get some fiber anyway;) But seriously not intended for consuming. Please do not try that at home.

How bout a picnic basket?

How 'bout a picnic basket? I made this for my 3 year old niece....shhhh. She has not received it yet. Her birthday is in 2 weeks. I know if I was 3 I would just adore this as a gift. Heck I would adore it now:)

The works includes: bologna, fried egg, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, 2 tomato slices, lettuce, and a smear of peanut and jelly!

Pop tarts are not technically for lunch, but they were fun to make.

I purchased the straw purse at the Dollar Tree last spring with this idea in mind. What a bargain!

And to top it all off ~ frosted cookies with sprinkles!
