Crooked Little Houses.

The other day my neighbor came down the block with a wagon full of wonky wood scraps. She said, "I'm not sure if you're interested in these, but they're yours if you want them..." I peeked in her wagon and said, "OH! They're houses!!" She gets a big smile and said, "See! I knew you would see something the rest of us couldn't!" I am one of those persons that takes that as a full-blown compliment!

Thanks, Jill, for introducing the concept that "felt is our friend". But....I will leave felt behind me and move on. Fabric of any kind just does not like me. Not even felt, which has to be the easiest to deal with. I'm sure part of my problem is that there were no sharp scissors to be found that day. I decided it was just too much work. It's summertime and I'm a lazy crafter, I guess.


  1. Adorable houses! Perfect! Wish I had that neighbor.....:)

  2. As evidenced by these charming little houses, I'd say you are far from being a "lazy crafter." They're brilliant!

  3. What a great neighbor! I need a neighbor like that!

    Very cute houses...I paint crooked houses on my canvases quite often. They are more fun that straight houses. :)
