These are really great little houses - starter homes in a sense. They will make a delightful village.

Thanks Lynn, I didn’t think about it, but now that you mention it, that door does go well with yellow. Something to remember for future houses. Lucy, this series of houses reminds of the series you did at Christmas. Did you say you were putting yours on a wreath?

Yes. I hot glued their bases to a wreath if I decide to take them off, it may tear the cardboard base a little, but not the house. whrn I’m at my computer I will add a photo of the wreath.

These houses are better than mine. For my 12 days series I had to make a house, a PDF pattern, photograph it, write an instructional blogpost in one 24 hour period so the houses are not decorated as nicely as I would like. I’m going to remake them sometime.

These are elegant little houses.

So here is a photo of my Christmas village wreath. I think Howard's 10 cent city would be perfect for a wreath, just like Laurie suggested.

This is really adorable Lucy, and I like how you attached the base only. I’m keeping it in mind for my 10 cent houses. Thanks for sharing.

Another delightful little house, Laurie. I can’t wait to see the next one.
