gnome homes

Once upon a time, in my mother's craft room, a little gnome did live in a horrid dull house. Until one day, I decided that I wanted to use this little gnome's home to decorate my bookshelf. So I painted it white, then mint, then green, then this lovely pink and topped it off with glitter. And the little gnome was so excited about his new little house, he gladly let me put him on my bookshelf. 
Ma & I have been working on these little houses off and on for a week now, and I'm loving them. This was the first one I did & I have a couple more in the works. They're so much fun! I think when I finally get back into Nashville and get these little guys settled down, I'll share a post about where they ended up & how I made them. Super easy and I think they'll be fun to have out all year. 
But what about you? Do you collect little houses? &  I'm curious what you're working on right now? Crafts, DIYs, etc.? Have a lovely day, my sweet ones, xo!

    I'm working with crochet, working on a felt pillow, and I have a few other projects I've been thinking up and putting down on paper.
