Just before Christmas I went on a Wild Goose Chase - on the internet. I regularly read Mockingbird Hill blog and she mentioned a Putz house that she puts out as a Christmas decoration. I had never heard of a Putz house. What is it? So I googled it. The search took me to Etsy and Pinterest (Time sink). One place said it means a Christmas village. I ended up ordering a Putz house kit on Etsy. My plan was to make it for next Christmas for Claire. I always like to give her a couple of ornaments every year. But being the person that I am, I ordered a set of four. They came in the mail yesterday.
They are so cute! I will love making them. I am trying to decide what colors to paint them. After looking at Pinterest Putz's, I think I like the pastel ones in light blue. I want to make one in light green as Claire's house is green. You can actually find many patterns online for Putz houses. Then I ran across a picture of the latest issue of Martha Stewart's Living magazine. Guess what is on the front? A wreath with Putz houses on it.
I went to Zinio and bought a digital copy just so I could read about it.
Now where is that extra fine glitter I got years ago?
