I made one more variation on the Dolly Tower House as a co-worker request. I changed it up with 3 gables. It's got a stone stenciled facade that I have used before. I really like the stepping stones. They are just cut out pieces of cardboard painted with a thick layer of sanded paint highlighted with white paint. I ground up some moss and mixed it with some green paint and smushed it between the stones when I glued the stones on. After I took these photos, I added moss at the base of the entire fence.

I took the entire Halloween village to work today to start the sale for the Habitat fundraiser. People were really enthusiastic and have purchased a lot of the houses already. I don't think I am going to have to bring many of them home.
