I didn’t feel well over the weekend and didn’t come up to the craft room on Saturday or Sunday. I think I’m on the mend, though I now have a bad cold settling in my chest. Some coughing and a headache, but better than the past weekend. I had finished the Valentine Putz house Friday evening, but was too tired to take pictures of it then. I had planned to do that on Saturday and get it posted to my Etsy shop, but just didn’t feel well enough to follow through.
But I managed to get the pictures taken today, so here it is. I love to see the windows shining with light.
I usually don’t post the back picture exept on Etsy, but here it is from the back. The hole will accommodate a small light. LEDs are perfect for Putz because they are so small and they burn cool. Here is a link to a string I ordered from Amazon and it works very well with the Putz houses. LED Light String
The house turned out pretty well. I do love the heart-shaped fence.
I would like to make a house to represent each month of the year. The Valentine houses certainly cover February but Youngest Daughter suggested something about Martin Luther King for Black History Month. I looked up the house he grew up in and it would make a beautiful Putz house. Now to draw the pattern!
