Day 3 - Tiny snowy house

Just something small and sweet today.

I think this will be a perfect thing to abandon with a note of holiday cheer.

The dome has been in my stash for quite a long while. THIS little tree was coloured green and dusted with some faux snow. The house is one which was pit fired in my back garden. And the gold is a snip from one of these dresden trims.


On top, a little bow with ribbon from THIS set, with a tiny snip of green and some colour from this Fancy Red Holly Berries Mix.

Ta dahhh! How's YOUR holiday cheer chugging along?

  1. Very cheery here indeed! We just got our Nobel Fir home yesterday and some twinkly star lights for the windows. So it's beginning to feel verrrrrry spirited here and a cold snap early next week along with some early holiday baking (especially the traditional baking of St. Lucie Cats on the 13th!!) will certainly help with the coziness. :)

    Lovely little scene Nichola! You know, after the holiday, there is going to be a let down after receiving a daily "gift" from Pixie Hill of such whimsy and delight!

  2. I have two of those cupcake domes on a pedestal glass things that I have been threatening to do little Christmas scenes in for at least four years ��

    Thank you for reminding me. If I can find them under the dust I am playing with them today.
    This is so sweet and old fashioned and what a nice little gift it would make. I wish I had grabbed more of those cupcake things when I saw them bc they were only 2.99 a piece! Ugh
    And where are those legions of snow peeps you had on fb yesterday hmmm? I love snow peeps

    2. And Holly mine came from a salvage store here in Maine called Mardens. That is why I have kicked myself for not grabbing more.
      That was at the height of cupcake mania so I would try a bakers shop.

      Maybe Alpha Stamps will get more. I wish they would!

  6. Okay Sugar - I found some - they are plastic but that is fine by me if they look good. I love your stuff as you well know! I love your miniatures Nicola and have bought from your Etsy store and have your directions for doing mini tea cup scenes!

  8. I have one from Alpha Stamps I was going to use for a mini cake. It was too big, so this is perfect. Thanks for the idea. Now I wish I would have ordered more. But...I'm happy I have one!
