Despite not feeling especially cheery these days, I decided to add some Independence Day cheer around the house with this little house.



There are a few details left to do, but I don't have what I need/want to do them. Maybe next week. Or next year.



While I did stock up on some red/white/blue materials, I used a lot of stash for this. The new are the gingham and star papers and the stars/stripes ribbons on the gables.

[



The ruffly trim at the base of the top has been in the trim stash as long as I can remember. Like, it was in the trim stash since I was a little girl! I don't remember what it had been used for by my mom, but I grabbed it at some point.



While digging through my crap stash, I found a baggie of dog tags I picked up at a garage sale with this red fire hydrant. I was going to use the back side, but then I noticed that the last four digits of the phone number are 1776, but backwards. So it seemed like fun little semi-secret detail to keep. Plus there is something so cute of a pup named "Dudley" having his own hydrant.



The paper mache house was an extra in the very first craftster swap I ever participated in! I LOVE little houses and I've been hoarding this waiting for inspiration ever since.

It's super cute, the chimney bit is the Best, looks like fireworks (I don't love the bang part of real ones but the shiny part is fab!)
