I just can't stay away from The Candy House!

I've been sneaking in little pockets of time working on The Candy House.  I have the side almost completely finished now- but I ran out of the little wooden buttons I am using as candy- so it's missing 3 pieces of candy before it's finished.  I really love how it turned out.
I worked some more on the front of the house- the frosting is finally painted and I started the large dormer.  I also started making some flowers for the flower beds that will be out front.  The more I get finished the more excited I get!  True to my habit of jumping around- I also put a built in shelving unit in the playroom.  I can't wait till I can fill these up with toys!


  I'm going back to the projects I am supposed to be working on now :)  Before I go here is a little shot of cuteness  :)

Lataina- thank you so much- you are always so sweet to me! Do you make minis? I think you need a blog! ♥

Heather- thank you :)

Julia- I would love that :) I have four dollhouses that I plan to make for my nieces- I think starting them is a goal for this year. Thank you so much ♥

Dani- I am sending you some creativity right now- can you feel it yet? I wish you could come over and work on things with me. I have too many unfinished projects too! much love!!!

Lirael- thank you! It's nice to see you visit- how is school going?

Sans- thank you :) I think I feel like a little girl while I am building it- I think I will be sad when it is done-lol. I did build the shelf from wood scraps. The inside of the candy house is not candy themed :) Patricia from Papillion Bleu made me a sweet little doll named Amélie that lives there-hence the need for a playroom full of toys :)

Piiko- I am so glad you can see the little faces! I wanted the flowers to be kind of fun too :) Thank you for your sweet words ♥

I think if I were to look up the term "eye candy", I should find a picture of this wonderful mini-house.

I love when you post an update. They leave me smiling for hours :-D
