Little pink houses ....and me....

A friend of mine (you know who you are!) has encouraged me in my desire to own Putz houses. She has a fine collection herself and I am in awe. You can find them on eBay and in shops but there are new ones out there, too.

But, I decided I cannot afford old ones and don't have room for them anyway.

Did I let that stop me? No. I decided to collect ONLY pink houses and from any era. Here they are so far. The small one on the left is a new arrival. The bunny and chick I made from Jennifer Murphy's instructions when she was on Martha Stewart.

On a different note, my dental work was unsuccessful after waiting ten days. I had the temporary crowns removed yesterday and the new bridgework didn't fit. Had to have more drilling and the temps returned to their temporary location and have to wait ten more days.

There is a lesson in here somewhere. Endurance? Patience? Maintaining sanity?!? It isn't then end of the world...it is a minor annoyance. I will endure! Can you spell s-o-u-p?

Have a good weekend.....and enjoy your day!

Wish I would still have all the little houses like this that my Dad set up around his trainset at Christmas time. I know they were these exact things. I would sent them all to you for your birthday!

Wish you would hurry up and learn that lesson of patience so you wouldn't have to have any more of them.

I love that song, and your houses. I can't afford the old houses either, so I've collected a few small new ones. I saved those Jennifer Murphy instructions. You've done a wonderful job recreating her lovely creatures.

I'm sorry to hear that your dentist ordeal has a way to go. I've heard tell, that 'patience is a virtue'....I have to work at that from time to time.

Ouch poor you. It must really irk when you watch these makover programmes where they show the people waltzing in and out with a whole new look from the dentists (do I sounded twisted and bitter? LOL)

Those houses are so cute. What are they made from? I made some birdhouses this spring from fabric. It was good fun as I could embellish them all I wanted.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm not usually so tardy about popping in and visiting- illness.

Best Wishes,
Melanie
