Our House in Miniature

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my parents' house. Darwin gave me a wonderfully comfy desk chair, and Mom and Dad got me an antique replica telephone (so cute!).

But the best present was from my talented sister. She created a miniature replica of our house from balsawood. It's about 4 1/2 inches tall (including the chimneys) by 5 inches wide, and it's very detailed, down to the American flag on the porch and the sconces by the front door. Wowweeee, I can't stop staring at it.



Just compare to the real thing:



It's wonderful to come from a crafty family.

Hey I didn't really want to post as "anonymous" but I didn't want to take the time to become a member. I like your site and will have to check in regularly now especially once school starts and we can't keep up with each other for days at a time. I appreciate the "talented sister" comment. But if only I'd added that extra window ;)

That is the coolest gift! I love crafty things like that - what a great memento.

I didn't realize you had to be some kind of member to post with a name. That's not how it works on most of the other blogs I visit, though most of them are made with Movable Type and not blogger, I guess. Maybe one day I will upgrade ...
