I thought of the little houses I've been having so much fun with, when I saw the house salt and pepper shaker set, so I decided to post one of the sets. The houses are wooden blocks, that my DH and I cut, sand and then I decorate with fun papers and accessories. This set was done with Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DP's. The blocks range from 2 1/2 inches to 3 1/2 inches tall and are 1 1/2 inches or 2 inches wide. We have several diff. styles of blocks and I'm selling them at a show I've got coming up. I'm also going to sell undecorated blocks in sets of 3. I have fun deciding on designs and think they'll make cute gifts. Here's my inspiration. http://www.plaidponyvintage.com/hous.../723house.html

Sue, this is just so sweet. I want to make a Christmas village and this totally makes sense. My children (all grown) would lie in front of my parent's Christmas tree for hours, just looking at the little village and I want that for my grandchildren. Thanks for showing me the possibilities.
