Hello everyone,

Christmas eve and I'm a bit excited as I have my family coming for breakfast tomorrow..full cooked breakfast, with other added bits n pieces, so should be fun.

I'm sharing a project I made with all sorts of things I had laying around, the only new purchase was the tin soldier and of course the house..found that at the local stationers and just had to have it..

I'm also so sorry there is so many photos but I had to show everything as I remembered to keep the camera out...

So primed the house first using this Chalk paint..

Two coats of chalk paint slightly off white more beige..

Looked a bit rough, so decided to...

Wall paper the house...
just used scraps paper from my stash and measured twice cut once..

The I found trees and pinecones and little presents in my  Christmas decoration box..

Apples, bells, and that disc up top is metal bauble and had it for years just laying around...

Made poinsettia flowers and added loads of snow, and those adorable little people and animals, I bought years ago all in a plastic bag for a $1.00

I knew I needed a tin soldier and found this one in a Dollar king store..I was so excited I let the whole we store know what I was was the perfect size for the bottom box..

Now for some close can see the little people and snowman, all their legs dangle, soo cute.

The snow was recycle plastic chips, very handy..

My lovely little angel up in the top box..and some little bottles filled with glitter..I die cut the 25 and made a box for it to lean on..

My little man sitting with legs dangling down..

The tin happy with him..

A side view....

And there it is in all it's glory..

So I thank you so much for stopping by again and for all the visits and wonderful comments you leave throughout the year, I appreciate and read every single one..I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a much happier, safer, and healthier New Year 2021..

So goodnight everyone ..

A fantastic project Chrissy. Love all the detail and colour mix is perfect.
You are so lucky to have time with your family, as we are unable to do so.
