Crafty Christmas II

I've been building houses again. Into the Christmas baskets they will go, so advert your eyes family members! I'm thinking about doing a series of mid-century modern ceramic houses next..... I'm calling my series, "Welcome to DeluxeVille"....of course. :-) I'll let you all know when that happens....hmmm I think I smell a DeluxeVille giveaway idea!!

It's house time
"The people living in the valley always had the strange feeling they were being watched!"

The lights are on, but no one's home!

luminary houses for Christmas presents

I opted for plain colorful houses because I just didn't have the time to create intricate designs like my Starry Starry Night house. The house's shapes are all based on the same template, but I changed them up a little to make them each a bit different. I was working on a limited time frame. Next year I will have to start my Christmas crafting earlier!


  1. aww, how cute are they?! I love your kitty on the stairs, protecting the town below! :)

  2. You are so talented!They are gorgeous & they look fantastic with the candle light in them ,what a great gift idea:)
    I especially like the one with the little cat by the front door.

  3. You're so talented, Mary! I dropped my teeth when I saw the Starry, Starry Night house!! I'll keep a close lookout for the DeluxeVille series :) Hope you have a happy holiday, hon!

  4. Hey Mary !

    Is there something you can not do ? :)

  5. Thanks everyone!

    Big Mama...I can't surf! The Sgt does, maybe he'll teach me someday?

    Happy Holidays Everyone! Thanks for reading!

  6. Wonderful!! You are something else!

  7. Three weeks off for vacation right now cannot be beat!
    Cool pictures. So sad that one day the beautiful Deluxeville will be someone else's home.
    I really like the brick house as well as the house one step above. Reminds me of the Forchino art seriies of vintage cars. Whimsical and lotsa fun!


  8. Surfing! Well, when in Jersey one GTLs...? Haha! I day trip to Classis Asbury Park ... a walk on the boardwalk. and some surfing lessons in the waves!

    At the same time, the Bachellorcave will start to be transformed into a home for the two of us.... ToE... no worries, the best is yet to come.

    Stay tuned!

  9. Delightful. Your blog is a feast for the eyes. So colorful. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Sandy

  10. They look even better "en masse"... a little village of cute houses! Good work.

  11. Those are amazing! The villagers must stay inside from the Cat that ate Deluxeville! Merry Christmas! Zootsuitmama
