Rescued Houses – Part Three

After two weeks of being back from my long trip, I realized I missed painting my little plaster houses.  It is something that I believe that I am good at doing.  I am also good at painting walls too.  I finished these three houses and started painting three more.  I typically paint three houses at a time, so others can be drying as I work on one.

Rescued House – Part Two

In August 2016, my storage unit flooded when areas of Louisiana received over 25 inches of rain within 24 hours.  I was going to abandon the houses that sat in flood water for over a week, but my sister rescued them.

I was excited to paint these house, because they were interesting and unique.

Tailor Shop:  Yes, it needed a cooper roof.  I had trouble deciding on a color for the door, so I decided to let it stand out.

Bed and Breakfast:  I wanted my Bed and Breakfast house to have a white porch, but I didn’t want the house to be too dark or pink.  I wanted the roof to be a grayish blue.

Christmas Village – Part 1

This obsession started in 1990, I was walking through a store (which I will not name) and notice the unpainted houses.  I thought, I bet my sister would like those and purchase three and gave them to her as a gift for Christmas.  My husband response was “That looks nice!”  So, the obsession began.
