NEW CHRISTMAS HOUSE


The beautiful little house I posted tonight is not antique. It is a new one made by a gal name Heather Kowalski and is just beautiful. This one is pale blue and with it are some bottle brush trees that I bought from Karla Nathan at Karlascottage. both gals have etsy sites and you can get things from etsy hand made by people far better and cheaper then in a store. I haven't even seen houses like this in a store. I liked it so much I went back and ordered the last one she had on her site in pink for my grandaughter. I thought she might like it for her room. I went through my account on PayPal today and I made 10 etsy purchases this month and 2 from Artbeads. I don't know where I found Artbeads but have ordered twice from them and there is NO shipping charge and NO minimum. I ordered a pack of lacey stuff to start beading some butterflies and it was only 5.99 total. They had a sale on 25% off a while ago and I ordered some seed beads and 6 packages of silamide thread and they were only $1.00 pack. I do not know if they ship to Canada free but it would be worth looking at. I have been very satisfied with their service.
I think with Christmas coming up it would be a good time for me to have a giveaway. I was in JoAnnes yesterday and they had a copy of the new book I mentioned in an earlier post. Embroidered Flora and Fauna by Lesley Turpin- Delaport. I am enjoying just looking at it so much I thought it would be a good giveaway. Please just leave a comment on my blog between now and Sunday and I will pull a name or number Monday am. I am not advertising this as I would like it to be won by one of my constant readers. It says I have 30 followers so that is a good crowd. I do this blog more for myself, my kids to read what I am up to and for the close friends I have made thru our CQ lists. I love you all and really enjoy reading all your blogs so come on and leave a comment. Maryanne in Canada already has this book so if her name is pulled she will get something else and I will pull another name.

What a sweet little house! I've always been fascinated with 'little' things (esp. chairs).
I can say from experience that this giveaway will be a fun one to win...that book is definitely drool-worthy.

Hi Freda! I love your new little glitter house! I'm so in love with those little houses, I've been thinking of doing some for my Etsy shop. Etsy is such a great place to find beautiful and unique things!

Thank you for sharing your photos!

Hoping that the swelling has went down from your head bump! Ouchh... Sounds like great purchases are winging your way from Etsy,and to think what sources there were before?? I had bookmarked your previous post when you spoke of this book as I wanted to remember what it was so I could look for it... Then I see you are putting up a draw for it. Please do include me for a chance at it as this was something I was wishing to study up on in the new year, Thanks for sharing with us through your blog Freda...

The little houses are darling. A favorite of mine. I still have the ones from my childhood. (that would make them "vintage" I guess LOL). The book sounds like something I would love. Happy Holidays. Sharon
