Brian, I love this Santa! That is something I wouldn't even attempt! I can't wait to see the finished project.

Hello again! Happy Sunday to you all! It's been a productive Sunday for me, I finished a big order for work and this house.

I took two sets of pics, one with the car and Santa and one without. I liked the way the house looked without them and thought they covered up some of the detail. I've decided to sell this house, Im probably going to put it in my Etsy store. So I didn't glue down the car or Santa so the new owner could decide if they wanted them or not.

-Brian

Wow.

But I do like it with Santa and the car better.

Another masterpiece.

Brian, this is an especially spectacular job. You'll be gratified to know that many years ago I saw this house in an online antique shop ... in green. They were asking around $300, so I passed, and I'm so sorry I did. Anyway, clearly your instincts are, as ever, right on target. Congrats!
