Anyhow, I found these amazingly adorable home ornaments over at retro mama's blog. I was so excited that I decided to try one. I was originally thinking a fun little advent tree with 25 of these babies, but I'm not so sure now. It' took a little time, but the result was amazing! Not as amazing as Kim's, but for my first try, I was happy and I learned a LOT!!!
Here are Kim's gorgeous house ornaments. NOTE: This must be like 20 hours of her life, so I hope you are as inspired as me.

Are these amazing or what??
And now, prepare to be not quite as amazed because here is mine...
I love the sweet little bird and the house number cut from some selvage! (Great idea Kim!!)
Here are my notes for next time:
1) Go bright! I love Kim's bright colors!
2) Stitch the house closed more carefully. It was 11:30 pm folks!!!
Anyway, these are super cute. Just might have to make more. Maybe a teacher's gift with the house number as the classroom number??? We'll see! And thanks, Kim, for sharing!
