The village is....

WooHoo! I finally finished the houses to swap at Creative Soul Retreat in March. I laughed at Janet's comment on an earlier posting - that by the end I would be a master builder; I am not sure about that, but by the end I was definitely on a roll and anything on my desk was fair game to become building materials.
And here is Archer smelling scrumptious (please tell me you did not just sniff the screen), after his visit to the Grooming Gallery on Monday.

Hi Julie, Archer looks so gorgeous. I think Rosie always smells like carpet shampoo when she comes home from being groomed. And she looks so white for about 1/2 a day (instead of the usual Pilbara Pink).

Well done on finishing the houses. They look awesome

The houses are wonderful Julie and I can't wait to get one of them (and one of all the others too!!!).

In our pre-Basenji days we had a poodle and he too used to smell pretty good after a visit to the clippers too! Though I must admit, a Basenji is SO much easier to look after as the hair is about eyelash length! lol

Your village is just fantastic Julie!! Looking forward to being the proud owner of one next March! Most of my blanks have fiddly 4 pane window openings so I think that is why I am putting off working on them!! Well that's my (current) excuse...

Bevlea said...

Teresa said...

Just brilliant Julie! You've inspired me to start mine. I'm off to dig out the envelope.

jessica said...

Dot said...

Your houses are beyond brilliant Julie. Gorgeous work. And so much time and effort too.

Archer looks VERY handsome and quite pleased with himself.

And I admit that I did sniff the screen and then blew a kiss to his little nose..

Who loves you baby? (I do).
