Hello everyone and a belated Merry Christmas to you all!

I’m Dale and I’m from Pennsylvania.

I recently became interested in Putz houses and finally found a specific set that I was looking for, although I paid dearly for it haha. It is a set of 8 coconuts I believe from the 30’s.

I also found some patterns on the paperglitterglue site and I did my first practice build using one of those patterns. Thanks Lucy!

For now, I’m just learning techniques and coatings and having fun. So far, I've built a little A-frame and the Hatcher Pass A-frame, which is in Alaska. I am also building a mini replica hiking shelter from my favorite local hiking trail!

I will most likely focus on building small simple patterns and A-frames and maybe some little ornaments.

I’ve also been collecting and painting vintage paint by numbers for many many years, so I may sneak some of that in as well haha.

I love A-frames and I am in the process of building a for real tiny A-frame cabin with a clear, flip open roof section. Maybe I will build a Putz version of it someday!

I will post up some pictures of my projects soon!

Looking forward to learning and also sharing my projects! Thanks for reading!
Dale

I forgot to mention I have a wonderful dog named S'mores! Here are some pictures from our first Christmas at the real life A-frame Putz cabin that I am building.

I don't see an "off-topic" section in the forum, but these are somewhat related and I wanted to share these, so I figured it would be ok to keep them in my personal welcome post.

Here are 2 Christmas paint by number "recreations" that I painted. These patterns are from a set of 8 paint by number Christmas cards from the 1950's. I transferred the patterns onto wood and then painted them. It would have been pretty neat to receive a hand painted card back in the 50'!!
