Homemade Putz House Swap 2012

 I had never heard of a Putz House until Erica came up with the idea for a Putz House Swap over at Golden Egg Vintage. I was really intrigued by the idea and had to start researching what one was? So I started a Pin Board and have so many on it now it is funny!
For me, Putz house is a mixture of the love of miniatures and doll houses, and Christmas, and vintage, and mostly GLITTER!!! I had a blast making my house that I sent to Debby! I do hope she loves it as much as I love the one she sent me!!
My partner for this swap was Debby of Cozy Blanket. If you haven't been to either of these blogs, I urge you to go follow them after you read my post!
Debby made me this Putz house
 This is the beautiful Putz house that Debby adorned and worked on for me! Isn't it just so cute? I love the pale blue and the snow on the roof! Look at that little fence!

I cracked up when I saw Santa peeking in the window! There is a vintage deer hanging out along side the pine tree in the front yard. And a pretty glass stepping stone path to the front door, where a Christmas wreath hangs above the door! The freshly fallen snow givs this Putz house the wonderful feel of Christmas Eve!

But wait.. what did Santa bring? It looks like Hershey's kisses! Those won't last long! And a cup of Hot Cocoa mix! Gee, Santa knew how much I love Chocolate!!

Debby had a fun guessing game on her blog, too. Guess what? I won!! How blessed can I get? She sent this darling little bell ringer!! I think she is out Christmas caroling on her way home to put up her Christmas wreath!

Thank you Debby for being such a wonderful swap partner! She also sent me that pretty vintage Christmas handkerchief that you see the house sitting on in the photos!! I am so happy!!

Thank you Erica, for hostessing such a fun swap! I think I am addicted to Putz houses, now!
I am off to make more for my new collection!! Haha!

Bless you all!
