house of cards
Really! Delightful and diminutive, these cozy cottages are recycled treasures. Made from collected ephemera, tiny buildings are constructed with care and give new life to memories past. A unique family tradition, Sharon carries on her husband's craft by meticulously rebuilding these bits of architecture. Both structure and typography complement the whole. You must read the story, charming and heartwarming, that inspired the original holiday village. In the spirit of doll houses, forts and dioramas everywhere, tiny buildings capture a wonderful wee world.
A note regarding her last post in January, she's been the master-builder for 85 party favors honoring her daughter's wedding day. Sharon promises more to come soon!
