I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas, reflecting on the miracle of our Savior born for us with joy and love. This merry season always seems to go by much too fast.
I had one last project to show you which I meant to share before Christmas, but time got away from me. Nevertheless, I still think I can share it now....a winter white house:
I had transformed this white house from something quite different before I placed it in this little corner of our living room:
Are you ready for this 'before' photo??? I found the house last spring at the local thrift store for something like $3. It did not meet my palette criteria, but I knew I could transform it:
I actually didn't mind the pink so much, but the green roof and red bricks had to go. So I decided to paint it all white and add some glistening 'snow' here and there...
Next I bleached some tiny green bottle brush wreaths and added vintage tinsel to each. They got placed on the front windows:
So keep a look out for these old village houses (this ceramic one was from 1982) at your thrift stores and don't be afraid to paint them to your liking! I may keep this one out for a bit, since it still seems 'wintery'.
Speaking of winter white houses....take a look outside our home today:
Time to go sledding!
