Poetry & Simple Devotion #1


From out the forest I now appear,
 
 To proclaim that Christmastide is here!

 
 For at the top of every tree
Are golden lights for all to see;
 
 
 
And there from Heaven’s gate on high
I saw our Christ-child in the sky.  - Theodor Storm


"Lord, My heart is set on You. "

White Glitter Parisian Townhouse

Let it snow …


 Let it snow... 


Let it snow...


Back before things got crazy busy Miss Izzy had a great idea. "Let's make a glitter house with some old world Parisian townhouse flair!"


She graciously donated a Fancy Feast box for the project.


And kept me company during the tedious parts.
Like making the roof from the pieces of cardboard that came with in the Fancy Feast box




And designing the dormers.


The dormers can be trimmed to fit a curved roof .

He Who Builds Things got involved ...

Here is a closer look at the dormer .




The windows are from the definitive Putz house  / glitter house site Cardboard Christmas . Thank you Paul & Howard!
Side view. I used white cardstock to cover the house and silver pipe cleaners as trim.
The base is a Styrofoam square from the  Dollar Tree. The icicles are from a template I found on the web at cotton pickin' fun.  Glitter and some white bottle brush trees for glitz. 
 
 This  one horse open sleigh felt like the perfect touch. 





You can also check out this darling free printout from Inka at Altered Artifacts.

Have a Blessed Week
and Don't forget to join me at the Nicest Parties Ever.
