I have two gorgeous pieces of art to share.  Mandykaye went with my house-shaped theme and made me this beautiful little abode.  She said she recently bought a bunch of cute little stamps and has been wanting to try them out.  She also included some little extra images for me to play with.

It's not just house-shaped, it's a trifold card that opens to reveal a little town.  Clever!



Bunny1kenobi claimed my advent calendar theme and went to town on it!  I was blown away to discover it's functional.  I can't imagine how long this took to make!

All of the tiny doors open to reveal a holiday image behind each one.  I am intrigued by the little 'knobs'.  Are they tiny game markers of some sort?


Thank you both for these fantastic additions to my collection!  I am smitten.   Smiley

Oh, my word, that house / town ATC is amazing! I love it!

MW, the little buttons actually came out of a plastic business card (of all things) that I bought at a yard sale a while back. It was designed to choose lottery numbers and had all these little plastic numbered chips inside. I sure wish I knew where I could find more of those business cards! (It was from the 70s I think, and contacting the dude whose card it was led nowhere, unfortunately.)

Yes, I agree! Finds like that are the reasons that I'm a hard core yard sale junkie.

Here is where the Brrt was located. It must have fallen off.



Bunny1kenobi made cute card this for vintage sewing. The top of a wooden spool somehow appears to be the top of a wooden spool. Super neat!

The frogs look out of a storybook! Haha! That bird ATC is pretty funny! Love the cardinal! The cat ATC pretty much sums up a cat's life (except mine usually yaks at some point  Undecided ). I said this on another post, but that advent ATC is awesome and I wondered how one would go with that theme! The spool/sewing one is pretty too!

Nicely done, rockingbearranch!  Pottermouth claimed me for Edward Gorey and boy, did she deliver!!!  The beware of this and that is one of her favorite Gorey images, and one of mine too.  It's so incredibly well done!



She also included some extras she picked up at an antique shop.  Would you believe I already have the entire zombie tarot deck?  I've never had the guts to use any of the cards in crafting, now I have two that I can add to my 'crafting with zombies' stash.  Thank you!

I'm not familiar with Edward Gorey but the ATC looks really cool! Did you handwrite the lettering pottermouth? If so, that is incredible! Is it done in ink? It looks like a lot of intricate pen strokes!
