putz country church

I finished this little white and blue church today. I had put it on the base and added the fence a few weeks ago, but had set it aside. It slipped my mind until I saw it today while clearing space on the craft counter. Decided to finish it.

The foliage is pink and a sort of blue/green. Not really teal.

The two small bottle brush trees are decorated with pink beads.

I’ll post it to my Etsy shop, ChristmasNotebook, tomorrow.

Besides the Putz church, I have this little brown and green house ready for embellishments. I have added the snow to the roof…just didn’t get a picture of that. I’ll try to get the house done in the next day or two.

A week or so ago, I had finished a custom order. The customer had given me a few things to add to it, so I completed that today. I love the way this turned out.

I also baked Peppermint Meltaways today. They are ready for the freezer. I packed a box with four kinds of cookies and a few other goodies for DD. DH mailed it for me.

Tomorrow, a friend is coming to help me decorate the “glass” tree (all spun glass and molded glass ornaments) and my dear daughter-in-law is coming to help with Christmas prep, as well. It should be a good day!

A big event tomorrow (Wednesday) is the opening of Breath of Eden Country Store. Among their wares are some of my Putz houses and Christmas ornaments that I have made. If you’re local, I hope you will stop by for their grand opening!

    I am a new reader to your blog. I have been wanting to get started making my own Putz houses and found you on a Google search. I have since proceeded to read back through about 20 pages of your posts 🙂 I love all your tutorials and seeing all your creations. (And I have printed a couple of your recipes to try!) Do you have any way to subscribe to get notices of new posts by email?

    Hi Rhonda! I love how you added pink in the embellishments for the blue and white church and, as you know, I love the yellow and gray set of three! It looks great!

    Rhonda, I’m a long time follower of your blog. I think I look forward to seeing your Putz houses and churches as much as your trees each year. Your first custom order is beautiful, just beautiful!

    Lisa, thank you for your kind comment re: my custom order. It was a little nerve wracking, but once I got started, it went well! I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I’m glad you like it! Thanks for following my blog. And thanks so much for leaving a comment. That is very encouraging! ~~Rhonda
