Cozy Christmas Cottage








 



Happy Sunday eve!  Did you have a good weekend?  It is still a bit of a construction zone here...kitchen is almost done...and now we have work going on in the guest bathroom.  I found some time to pop in to my craft room and deck the halls with this little paper mache house.  Sometimes it is fun to be able to do something... with no deadlines.  I used some etsy images, lots of faux greenery, and other fun little tid bits.   I LOVe to use faux greenery on everything for Christmas.  Adds the depth I love on most things.   Touchy feely.  I added some stamp detailing from Purple onion and old antique metal buttons.  Add a healthy dose of mica flakes and I was done.   Hope you like!  hugs, cherry
