Putz House Perfection

Santa's arrival is looming near. Almost all the decorations have been put into place and yet the temperature still sits in the balmy 70's here. It hasn't hastened the boxes of mail that have been arriving like snowflakes should.  Last week was no exception.

Chris of Perfectly Printed was my swap partner for the Putz House Swap

I let it sit in the cellophane a few days before I broke open the sweet ribbons and vintage tin tape container she had tied up in them.

It is amazing. Big and full of glamorous details. 

Even Santa is making his way down the chimney above the glistening glittered roof.

The stockings ar hung through the peek in the door.

Vintage trees and jingle bells sit among the snowmen.

Even the tape measures...

scissors and buttons decorate the trees out front.

Chris I love is magical...Thank you.

Precious house! I love the tree with the tape measure on top. I recently purchased some tape measure grosgrain ribbon, what a perfect place for it one top of the tree.

How sweet is that button tree. I adore that fireplace through the front door. Just darling all around!

Erica of Golden Egg Vintage said...

WOW! Chris knocked it out of the park! This first thing I noticed was the scissors and measuring tape. SEW creative!
I have to steal her idea of the Santa scrap popping out of the chimney.
I hope you both had fun with this swap! I was so lucky that you joined!

I wish Santa would send some 70's out west. Meanwhile, I'll just have to admire a little Christmas tree decorated with tiny sewing scissors. Very magical!

That is just precious Renee & Chris..It makes me want to try crafting one..Can you buy the house forms to decorate or do you have to make those too??

Renee, Thank you so much for the sheet music tutorial. I absolutely love the one you sent me and have wondered how it was made. Also, the cookie cutter ornaments are fabulous! I'll be on the lookout for old ones for sure.
