                                      Hello Friends!

           Just thought I would pop in and share a little of this and that.

                    I have been busy in my studio with my grand daughter
                 cooking up some ghostly....haunted .......looking house.

It all started a few years ago when I thought I would dabble in making doll houses....

That's where it ended... I made a small doll house and it sat lonely in my crafters closet

Then this year I tried to come up with some new craft or creation that we could work on together.
You remember that Miss A. also loves to create....She visits me during the summer school break.

So out came the doll house... and out came the paints......

                                 Let's make a HAUNTED HOUSE!

The shaker shingles got a coat of black paint, the shutters, the front door and the window boxes....

                            The house was first painted white and so were the windows...

This looked too stark so I painted on a log affect......

                                     Here's a sneak peek....

We added more details..................


Now we are building a new chimney ....

The final reveal.....soon......

Be sure to come back!

Are you thinking of Halloween yet?

Love having you stop by!
