SIMPLE LITTLE HOUSES.
I wanted to talk about them tonight.
I am a fool for them.
I mean, I LOVE them to the moon and back.
I dream about them at night.
So here's one simple house project I have made with my own two hands,
three houses which I purchased.
I've shown this pincushion so often on this blog, I should probably be ashamed to do it again. And, yet, here it is. It's three inches square. At least three people close to me have requested to receive it when I die. In order to manage that...A. I have to die and B. That's not happening yet, I hope. So, C. Guess I'll have to make a couple more reasonable facsimiles.
Then, recently, I found this little hand-painted one. It is two inches square and just adorable!
The one on the right is about one of the tiniest prints I have ever seen. It's adorable too.The print is mounted on wood and has a tag on the back which says New View Gifts and Accessories.
Here, the one on the left is painted on a surface I can't identify and signed by a name I can't read.
I also got it at the flea market.
It is one and a half inches by four and a half inches.
The landscape painting is an oil....signed A.M. and labeled Agnes M. Meyers Gift Shop,
San Antonio, Texas.
I also bought it at the flea market quite a few years ago. I knew it was Texas the very second I laid eyes on it, because I am from Texas and I've seen many fields of Bluebonnets...
as they say - "back in the day."
This little painting is four by six inches.
By the way, I know these two paintings are not of Simple Little Houses,
but because they are also SMALL I chose to show them also.

The two tiny prints are so sweet.
I couldn't resist them.
Simple Little Houses.
And there you have them.
four of my favorites
plus a tree and a Texas Landscape.
