Now this is from our front door looking down at the mail boxes. They are to the right of the stop sign.
Our mailbox. There are three boxes here. You have to look through the pines to see our house. See the little fence on the right. It still has the wreath from the boy scouts on it. I didn't like the wreath so I put it there. I had hoped someone would take it or it would blow away. Nope it's still there.
My little bug. You can see where Hubby parks. We have a 2 1/2 car garage but hardly ever park the cars there. One reason is if you park in the garage and go into the house from there you go down a few steps, then across the family room and then up a flight up steps to the main level where the kitchen is. That's one reason we want a house without steps. Can you see Mary and Joseph. I did put them in the garage after this picture. to the right of my car by the door to the garage is where the mail lady used to put our packages. Or just throw them in the snow. In front of Mary and Joseph is a box. Now that's where they put my packages. I have been getting a lot this past week. Mostly because I am hosting the mini swap this time. Or sometimes the mail lady stuffs the mail box as in the picture below.
This was all in my standard size mailbox. That gray package was big. I had a hard time even freeing those packages.
I made this Valentine box for Lynn for Viv's Valentine Swap. That's an old valentine and the bottom closes up. The little cupid has wings and is in a diaper. The scrabble tiles fits over the small letters on the bingo card. I wrapped ribbon around the outside of the box.
I can't wait to show you all the minis that are being swapped. I have to wait until everyone gets theirs.
Remember when I said I didn't even have a doll house. Well I do now. I bid on one on Ebay this week. Talk about quick delivery, it came today. It's still in the box. I will open tomorrow to see what it all looks like. It's unfinished and has some furniture. I will have lots of accessories from my mini swaps. My husband said it was great that I had a new hobby and it would be something else we have to move. I told him it's a MINI hobby and it doesn't take up much space. I know he is so excited to help me put it together.
Well everyone have a good Super Bowl Sunday. I hope the northern part of the US doesn't get buried in snow tomorrow. As long was we have electric, that's okay.
OOPS, Last chance to sign up for the giveaway. I will draw this week-end.
