The Little Red Door~

Some of you know that I have a real weakness for small buildings.
I frequently post about small outbuildings that I think would make perfect studio spaces, garden sheds or secret hide-aways.
I stumbled upon The Little Red Door a few days ago while perusing Etsy and I have spent a significant amount of time admiring these Lilliputian homes this weekend!

The Easter Bunny will certainly be making a house call in a couple of weeks.
If you can hear me Easter Bunny... I would love one or two or 10 of these darlings in my Easter basket!
{After all... no sugar in forty days should deserve this sweet treat}
But then, Mother's Day isn't far off, and there
is an upcoming birthday and Christmas is a mere 9 months away {you can never start too early...}

~The tiniest house~

Many years ago, a good friend gave me an old printer's tray for my ever-growing collection of miniatures.

Honestly, it has been such a fun collection over the years. When friends would enter my home, they would head straight for it to check out any new additions. It really is a great conversation starter.

A few years ago I took it down- just editing things and clearing the decks.
Lately I had been thinking about putting it out again.
A few of these little houses would certainly add something special to my miniatures collection.

The artist accepts custom orders too. How much fun would that be?
Tiny replicas of your own home's exterior colors or that of a good friend?
