Sweet Little Village

I love this project, I just have to smile every time I look at it. I found these wooden blocks a few months ago, while cleaning out closets. Some of the blocks belonged to my husband, and some to my kids. We kept them at our Grandmother's  "AKA Grandma Noodle" house. Whenever we would go to visit her, the kids would play with them on her turquoise shag carpet. Austin would build the city, and Godzilla, I mean Annie would knock it down.  I recently submitted these photos to be considered in a holiday magazine. We'll have to see what happens there. I thought it would make a great center or mantle piece. The snow is laundry detergent, it's kind of messy, but smells good. To me this was the prefect re-purposing project, that hopefully will be passed down to our kids. My husband grew up to be an architect. I'm not to sure what my kids will grow up to be. Maybe they will go into showbiz and  remake all the old Godzilla movies.


  1. I LOVE your blog! Thanks so much for visiting mine a couple weeks ago. I apologize for not getting here sooner but I was so sick with a nasty flu.

    Your little darling doggy is just adorable! Such cute pictures in your sidebars.

    Hope you're having a wonderful week.

  2. Darling little village!

    You and Annie need to get colored streaks in your hair! It's just color and you can always color over it. Then maybe Mitch and Austin will want something to jazz up their dos!!!!!
