Little Houses

3houses  2houses

Sometimes it makes sense to spend hours chatting over a Japanese hotpot meal.  These adorable little houses were my husband’s brainchild as we shared one such meal at a restaurant downtown.   My brain immediately started spinning on the possibilities, and one month later I had created dozens of these little homes.  One little house by itself is very cute, but when I put three together I have the perfect gift.  They look amazing in front of the window but I’ve also constructed some to hold a battery tea light, and others to hold a mini Christmas light.  They are also very cute hanging on the Christmas tree with mini lights inside them.  I really enjoy making them because I can play with so many different combinations of glass.

Snowflake

I’m quite fond of this silly little snowflake. It looks great in the window or on the Christmas tree.  I initially planned to make a whole group of these snowflakes for my living room window for Christmas, but I kept thinking of people who would love them and gave them away as fast as I could make them.  If you received one, it was made with love, and if you’d like one, let me know!

Little Church

It seems to me that every neighbourhood has its own church, and in my opinion, the more charming the better.  So I made a cute church to sit on my windowsill beside the little glass houses.  This church holds two battery tea lights that cause it’s tiny yellow windows to appear warm and inviting on a cold winter’s night.  I bet the whole neighbourhood is cuddled up inside, enjoying a potluck dinner, laughter and friendship.
