If you could find a way to drill into the bottom of the wood pieces instead of attaching a pin you could paint a design on the back and use the same pieces for 2 holidays. I'm thinking one for spring would be really sweet too, ivy and fleurs, how sweet!

That is a great idea! Mr Lime had suggested that I attach the houses that way to the pegs originally but some of the pieces were just too small to make that work. If I was more selective about the wood I scavenged, I think it would work!

I love the idea of a spring house too - with ivy and flowers growing up around the cottages. Cute!!

Do you live near a good driftwood source, craftylittlemonkey? I'd love to see you put your clever brain into a project like this Smiley.

I LOVE this! I wish you had accidentally sent it to me. The idea of a haunted version for Halloween is great. You must do that!

I love the idea of a little village as the advent calendar.  I will have to think about what I could use to make a village.  (no driftwood around here!)

I bet you could just use regular old branches, lukenlarry! They don't need to float around the Pacific for a decade first Smiley.
