Wooden House

Hello chums. This week instead of making fabric houses I made a wooden house! Having a trot around there are some great driftwood houses....well mine is made from scavanged bits from the wood shed that Head Honcho has lovingly cut up for the fire.

Here it is sitting on top of a piece of heavy gate post. HH said the trees look like lollipops so it's now named Lollipop Lane! The rusty 'chimneys' are a couple of rusty nails garnered when cleaning out the fire.  The trousers and towels are blowing in the breeze and the sailing boat is already for a trip around the bay.

I am working on some new dolls at the moment so will put photos up next time.

Now for doggie overload......those of puppy nervousness turn away now!
Here is Archie talking to Jazz (his best mate) on the wonders of being a father. Jazz has no idea what he is talking about but wants to support his chum. (daughters dog.

                                          Little Lucy Locket. She looks like a mini Doberman!

                               Me and my girl. Lucy has her daddies looks when he was a pup.
I think the puppies are going to get tongue rash with all the licking Nikki does and now Archie has joined in haha. Got a lot more photos of the cute family but I could see some of you were nodding off (just kidding!)

This is my cactus which has flowered for the first time in about 10 years.
The original mum has been buried by the children! They are a vivid orange, my kind of colour!

This weeks linky parties are;

  3. The house is really lovely, especially the lollipop trees. gorgeous puppies too. Hope you have a good week.

  4. Love your wooden house - the lollipop trees set it off, and I love the little washing line! Oh, oh, oh, the cuteness of those puppies - gorgeous pics!! x

  6. Your reclaimed wood house is really fun and the little sailing boat is the perfect finishing touch.

    The puppies are just adorable, i expect they're keeping you on your toes!

    How exciting that your lovely cactus has flowered after so long! I find cacti quite fascinating :) x

  7. The puppies! THE PUPPIES! They are too cute it HURTS! I have this overwhelming feeling where I want to keep hugging and squeezing them, but I have no boundaries and I'm fairly certain I'll squeeze them until their eyeballs pop and that wouldn't be fun for anyone...

    I have a cactus I got when I was 17. I'm now 30 and he is the only living thing I have kept alive. I think I love him... I'm serious... he's called Capri.


    1. haha, yes they are super cute and now they are walking even cuter!
      I nearly threw the cactus away, must of known that so it flowered!!

  8. I love your little sea shore house and those babies are just so huggable.
    Hugs Mrs A.
