greetings to all...

here's a project I've been working on in bits and pieces for a couple of months...forum member, Lynn, sent me a link to the vintage original that was on an auction site...thanks, Lynn! :D ...

my little glitter house version version is about 11 1/2" tall on a 4" x 7" x 3/4" base...color scheme?...not certain just yet...starting to make the three bells for the towers...i believe the original had red mercury glass bells...

progress photos will be posted later...

my very best regards...

howard...

The Santa on the original looks a lot like the santa you made last year.


Super cool.

Howard, thank you for the photo. I don’t think I would have noticed what a wonderful design it is until I saw your version. Good eye.
