two little blue and white putz houses

I hope you are not getting tired of seeing Putz houses. I have managed to finish two more today.

Of course, you need to see it lit, too!

The other one is a very simple design.

And I worked on the other six that I have in process. I added artificial snow to all of them, glittered that, and then trimmed some of the roof lines.

I used string beads to line the roof of the little yellow house and tinsel chenille stems (pipe cleaners) to line the roof of the two-tiered house.


The yellow house on the left in this picture is a very simple and traditional Putz design. I trimmed the roof with green tinsel chenille stems to bring out the color in the roof. The yellow house with pink trim has so much going on already with all those windows that I decided to leave the roof alone. No trim.


The white house on the left is the same pattern as the yellow one above with all the windows. And the white one with the tinsel trimmed roof is the same design as the first picture in this post.


The white house with the blue fence has a secret. See how the fence is offset? That’s because I ran out of fencing. Look at that! Another inch and I would have been fine! Happily, I had set the house at an angle into the corner, so I was able to offset the fence. A happy accident because I do like the way it came out. I think there is room on the right for a decorated bottle brush tree. And maybe a little deer in front of the fence.

The white one with the pink fence also has a secret. Look at the roof before the tinsel trim was added. It just dried that way. All wrinkly. Once it has dried that way, there is nothing you can do to straighten the roof itself. But the trim fixed it right up, making the roof line look straight. A pretty simple fix that adds some nice embellishment to the house.

I have so many garden pictures I want to share, as well. My laptop is out of commission and I am having to use the desktop computer which is not as handy for posting. My usual routine is to work on crafts at my desk, then use the laptop after I retire to write a post for the blog. I can only sit at the desk for so long before I need to get my feet up to reduce the pain in my legs. Hopefully DH and Younger Son can fix the laptop soon. It has been backing up to Carbonite for a couple of days…so many pictures…yikes… Once that is done, I hope they can have it up and running without too much delay. I will try to get a garden post up tomorrow or Monday.

I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend. We’ll be grilling with Older Son and his family. Looking forward to having the grands over. DH and daughters will make the trip to the cemetery for the Memorial service in the morning, then back to the house for grilling. Take time to remember those who have given their lives in service to our country. We owe them so much more than we can repay.

    Loving all your new houses…they each have your special touch and no I don’t tire of seeing them. The corner offset is a wonderful oopsie as I call them. It looks just like a corner house property in my Victorian looks. Have your ever thought of doing some darker painted ones like dark hunter green with barn red trim? One of my favorite house colorways.

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family. Here on the east coast we were drowned in heavy rain for two days so most Memorial Celebrations to honor our soldiers were sadly cancelled.
