Have you ever wanted to swap houses with someone. Like go on vacation to their house and they can come to your house and stay. Or another idea, I'd love to trade my larger home with a cute little cottage close to the mountains or the sea. Well, that is not likely to happen but in the movies. I can't remember the name of the movie where they swapped houses during the holidays. But the cottage in that movie was so cute. Okay, off the subject.....so sorry. I took part of a Putz House swap. I never knew they were called that before doing this. I wasn't sure what I would do. I bought my little houses in Colorado and they flew home on the plane with me. This is funny ......my swap partner was from Colorado. So my little house has been to Ohio and back to Colorado. My partner's name was Susie of littlesusiehomaker- lilsusiehomaker.blogspot.com/ Now how is that for a sure name. Well this beautiful red house is the one she sent me. Look at the detail. I love how she did the windows and the door and the roof and the front and the side........I should just say that I loved it all. Her house was big. lilsusiehomaker.blogspot.com/
This is blurry but it is the inside of the house.. She did a little fireplace scene and a little bottle brush tree all decked out. Cute, isn't it. Every time I walk by it and can't help but smile.
Also in the box was this little Santa bag that had candy, a sweet owl ornament (I love owls) and a chocolate candle. Little Susie knows me well.
This is the little house I sent her. It is smaller than the one she sent me. Susie doesn't even know this but recently I bought a little box of vintage Christmas things from Erika of Golden Egg Vintage. Erika sponsored this swap. I used those cute little things to decorate the house. Even the little hankie I got from her.
I had the little fence. Notice that Santa is looking in the window. Well this was a fun swap. I must just throw this out there.....any one want to swap houses for real. Didn't think so, but had to ask.If you follow my blog you know that I am hosting a "Cup of Kindness Swap". I have assigned partners and sent messages to everyone in the swap. But swappers please let me know if you got my message. Did I leave anyone out. There is a problem with clicking on my email from my blog To be safe when sending me a message please type in my address. I know that's a pain in the neck. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
I know that this week starts the mad dash for Christmas here in the States. Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I took my decorations down.....I am so ready to decorate for Christmas and hopefully I will soon. I am excited to hear all about your celebrations.
