I cannot help but see vintage Christmas items and wonder why on earth they stopped making them. For instance, little ten cent Putz houses. Paper mache at its finest. Painted thick with holiday colors, dripping in glitter and tiny little film window panes. What year did they decide these little treasures were no longer worthy of selling? Perhaps that is part of the charm. Having to find them in murky basements could be part of it too.
When Erica of Golden Egg Vintage offered up a swap with them, I couldn't help but play along.
Taking my cues from Magpie Ethel...I set off to decorate a trio perfect for any little display.
Corners that curled were redone with modge podge. Broken ornaments and light reflectors dotted the edges. Hints of glitter on the roofs and snow on the ground finished them off.
Having seen all the other fabulous houses that everyone has made I wonder if I dressed these enough. Well, I could always make more!
Chris my partner at Perfectly Printed these have been place in the mail along with a few other goodies...Merry Christmas and Happy Thanksgiving.
