This cutie popped up on my facebook ticker because of the drab gray Rambler sedan parked at the street. The house is small but has nice details that would work nicely on a putz house. And if anyone wants to get really inspired and recreate the scene, I can guide you to a 1/43 scale replica of the Rambler.

We actually have two or three of these type in my village, including a triple dormer. They ARE neat!

Greetings to all...

Thanks to DCrowe for the inspiration photo...and here's my little glitter house "putz" version in raw cardboard right now...it's not an exact replica...some of the architectural details are slightly different...some missing...some squeezed and condensed...but it does capture the basic house...I'll probably do a sand finish...colors?...we'll see...stay tuned...I'll post a pattern my version and a pattern in a few weeks...

my very best regards to all...

Howard...

update...5/26/2021...

a work-in-progress...still mounted on painting handles...(been held up for a while other things had to be done)...shutters and snow on roof painting are next...decided to go with colors vs natural sand...there will be a lot of contrast with the gold mullion and red windows, green tree and figurine in the yard...stay tuned...
