Tiny, tiny houses....

When I was working on my birdhouses, I naturally wondered how small I could actually make them. So, I pulled out one of my sticks of wood (I have them in various sizes) ...and started cutting. BTW, I use a hand saw and a miter box, but the hand saw is about to die...lol.... and I'll just keep using it till it does....Anyways..... Once I got a few houses cut out, and sanded down, I painted them.... then I changed my mind, and went to look for my tiny letter stamps. This is what I came up with...

After each one was painted, I then went back with a brown marker and 'stained' up the sides....meaning I went over the edges with said marker, and then went back over the edges with my finger to blend them in.
See how tiny they are?!

After I did the first set..... I wanted all white ones... And what better word to use then Dream.


I made a set to go in The Painted Lady and a set to go up on Etsy.
Just think of all the words that could be used!

OK
Until next Time....

Katie, one of my friends has a set of houses like that in her real home. They sit on a table in the front hallway and they spell out "welcome". Very neat that you made them in mini.

I think this is such a great idea, spelling HOME with tiny homes.

Katie, are you still collecting sand from all over the world?

Katie said...

Susan.... I'd love some sand:) Haven't gotten any yet, figured I'd do a blog soon about it... A sand trade or something, lol....

Thanks for remembering:)
