A Granny Flat in the Back


Another extremely warm day here in So Cal~ too hot for me, but anything above 71 degrees is too hot for me.Next up is the last of my houses...for now. It is the Maya Road Townhouse and it really is a bitty thing, just 5.5 inches tall. Once I figured out what I wanted to do with it-it was fun to play with.
Here are some of the details...the roof is made from vintage "Flinch" playing cards-they are smaller than the standard playing card. Between cards I layered Maya Road pom pom fringe. The scalloped eaves are made from Dresden foil-mine was blue and I painted over it. The front of the house is from a very old dictionary and I used pins and the sheer numeral from Maya Rd. The windows have a page from Winnie the Pooh layered beneath them and Close to My Heart Liquid Glass in the windows. I'm thinking these would be fun as Christmas gifts or use as a Christmas Ornament!
