Pink Glitter House Church

This is one of my latest Glitter House Projects - a Pink Church.  This is a remake of a vintage design made by the Dolly Toy Company in the 1930's or '40s. I'm not sure of the exact year. This pattern was made by Howard Lamey. The decorative windows and the cardboard trees were part of the design. Thanks Howard for a wonderful pattern!

It was fun to make this church since it was a reproduction of an old one made so many years ago. I have never made a reproduction- type glitter house before. I'm sure my version is not truly authentic - I wasn't really trying to make it that way. I think the original was white but I couldn't resist making it pink!

The pattern itself was interesting to construct with some new challenges for me - especially related to constructing the center tower and the roofs/spire. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

The trees show up best the photo above. They are covered in green metallic glitter. In real life they are a little brighter than this - a nice Christmas green. These are the first cardboard trees I have done. I think I prefer the bottle brush trees but these were fun to try.

I wasn't sure how the windows would look since I printed them on regular printer paper instead of vellum but they glow nicely when the "lights are on" at night.

In other news, I am trying out a new blog header. I made several so I am giving this one a whirl. What do you think?

Thanks for reading. I look forward to seeing what you have been working on!
