I found these pictures from December 2013, and realized I'd never posted them and the 'little house' project. When we were in SLO at the Remnants of the Past event, Michelle had bought a cloche, and I also bought one for my mom. For the holidays I envisioned a snowy scene complete with a sparkly, snowy, pretty little house. I began looking here, there and everywhere, to no avail. I had a vision in my head, and it looked similar to this:PAPER TALES.
Ironically, whilst in SLO for Remnants, I forced my pals to stop in at Beverly's, the local craft store. In it, I found the perfect little paper mache houses. After buying the aforementioned houses, I came across a glittery church ornament (see photo below), which I thought could do the job. But alas, the houses were still begging to be decorated.
While at Remnants, we knew this project was in the making, so we bought these trees that had been bleached white and then re-dyed by the crafter in different hues with old fashioned glitter. So here is my little vignette, on my pretty King's Crown plate (a $10 find at the Huntington Collection in Pasadena).
My photography skills are not good enough to get a good picture through the glass of the cloche. So you'll just have to use your imagination.
I know I've mentioned Remnants quite a few times, and sadly, this summer I'm not sure if I'm going to make it, since they've moved the location further north to Santa Clara. It is a great event, though, and this year it is June 28 and 29. You can find more info HERE.
