Helpful comments

 When I wrote the post last week about these little houses so many of you left the most helpful comments and gave me lots to think about. Thanks for all of the great ideas and thoughts, most helpful!
One blogger commented that maybe I shouldn't think about them as Christmas ornaments, because that limited the audience and the price and this is something I never really thought about. So true! So why not make them year round, a few at a time, when I have some tiny objects that might work with them, like this tiny frozen charlotte or the tiny perfume bottle. Great idea! I also liked all of the pricing comments and the idea of them being limited editions and making a different one each year to make them more of a collectible. Maybe I will start numbering them or something like that. Someone also emailed me and mentioned the idea of using old ribbons and lace for the hanger, love that! Lots of potential for new ideas, so thank you all for your wonderful thoughts on that topic. Here is where it took me...... and then I made six more and didn't make them with a resentful, what the hell am I spending so much time on these for. I approached making them with a whole new point of view, thanks to all you bloggers!

ornaments aren't just for Christmas, just like beer isn't just for breakfast anymore ;-)

HI Tracy, finally catching up on your past week or so. Happy belated birthday! My dad turned 80 on the 24th and he's none too happy about it, but he's alive and kicking, which is not something anyone in his family could say before. No one makes it to 80 in his (my) gene pool. Glad you are surrounded by goodness, adventure, good friends and a wide open willingness to enjoy your life.

These are very sweet. I'm sure making them from a happy place shows in the work when you hold them in your hands.
I agree, these should not be holiday ornaments but life ornaments.

Lovely :)
Doesn't that whole "price point" bullshit take the fun out of it! Glad you could readjust your view and just CREATE for the artfulness of creating.
