good morning to all...

this recently completed project involved making two of the same house...one for the client and the other as a gift for a family memeber...the actual house, their childhood home, is on the side of a hill...that's why the base is much taller near the back...the little Santa figurines are a little over 1" tall...the house bases measure about 6 1/2" x 9 1/2"...

i've included one of the reference photos of the actual home from which i worked...

my very best regards...

howard

good evening...

i wanted to share a picture with all of you of what a customer did with a little glitter house i made for her earlier this year...

to quote her note to me...

"This is the cover I got for the house....keeps the dog hair from a Golden Retriever and a Great Pyrenees off of it!"...

i'm pleased to see that she thinks enough of my work to have a museum quality display case made...

my very best regards...

howard...

Your houses ALL deserve this, actually. And engraved brass plaques on the base. :-)
