Houses Come Home!

The QB5's "What Do You See?" swap is starting to arrive!
This is what Patty saw and sent back!
Doncha love it?
I adore it.....
We could add a few pieces of our own stuff...and she did.
I sent a rusty rabbit to all of them...and I've gotten 3 back... and so far NO ONE has
used the rabbit!!!
But Patty had a rusty bird and that's what is on the rooftop!
I love birds!!!
...and she made one of her sweet wire bird's nests for it, too!
And there is a sweet hankie that is from her mother's house.... suspended from the bottom!
Below is a photo of what I sent....I don't see the rabbit in that shot...but I'm sure he's just hiding ... you know how they are.
I sent them all in Texas Tamale bags.....cause everyone needs a Texas Tamale bag to keep.

Here is what I made for Patty.... and you can visit her to see some better pictures.... I have two more houses to show you in the next few days....

and one more to arrive from New Zealand still.

Plus I have to do a house.

They are going to look so great all hanging together!

Love your house! very clever the way Patty used the leaf ribbon and her flimmer chimney! Super cool colours! My rabbit is hanging from my Easter basket, just in case you wanted to know!
I love your tin deco, very clever QB5 thing going on there!

I have NO idea what a texas tamale bag is! But I do know loveliness when I see it, and I'm seeing it in Patty's work! What a fun trade. Can't wait to see the rest of them!

Oh MAN! I have to WAIT to see the others?!!! You're killing me Linda! I know what mine looks like, but still.

Patty managed to use most of your stuff and TWO windows?! (over achiever!) I love the hanky "skirt". So sweet and domestic. A house I want to visit! :)

I am so loving all of these creations and so sorry about your friend. That hit my college group a few years ago and it was hard, so hard. Love to you sweetie.

Loving these so much. You did a beautiful job ith that sardine can, Linda. I just could not imagine what one would do..and I have seen some incredible things! Patty's house is adorable! So glad she could use a piece from her mom.
Thanks for your support, Linda. Such a nice comment on my blog.

Linda, Love Patty's house....I already had a good peek at it from visiting her blog. These little packages must just make you giddy when you see them arrive in your mailbox. Adored the kipper tin you made for her as well! A really fun challenge...what will you all do to top this one?!!! Can't wait to see!
