This my last house-related post for a while- for the next six days I shall be releasing a mounted print every day into my etsy shop! I am so excited and happy to be able to offer my sketches as prints. Just to think they might brighten somebody's wall somewhere;
and make them smile
is a wonderful thought.
But in the meantime I have been finding houses in favourite books of mine;
*Louise's Houseboat "Clementine" in Louise Builds a Boat
*The Ingalls' prairie wagon in all the Little House Books
*A secret hideout in Tanglewoods Secret
Or Syliva's Fair's embroided beauties in The Bedspread;with a haphazard, patchwork garden;Or Mouse's ingenious designs for her friends in House By Mouse
Like Squirrel's tree houseAnd Caterpillar's pear
(who wouldn't like to live in a pear I ask you?)How about Owl's tower?And I couldn't go past the idea of living in the church attic with mice and a lovable ginger cat
how mysterious and exciting it would be to live in Moominpappa's lighthouse (or my impression of it anyway) In fact any of the moomin dwellings would be a glorious adventure;Children's books.
So many beautiful ideas.
Don't they just make you smile?
