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.

If you would like to know why I called them my rescued houses, check at this blog post: Rescued Houses – Part One
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.
English Cottage: Painted it a traditional colors. The front door needed to be stained glass colors.
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.
Most of the time, I would work on several houses together. As parts on one was drying, I would work on the others.

Country Barn Christmas
Country Antique Store
Corner Store 2
This obsession got so big, I created a database to keep track of the houses I painted and ones that are waiting to be painted.
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.
