Two Things to Show You

This is another of my thrift store finds and I will post a photo of the bottom as we usually see that stamp "Made in Japan" or "Made in China" but this one is not like that. We have a larger Japanese and Chinese community here so I assume that someone purchased it there at a local shop and to me that makes it so much more special. Does anyone know how to read this? Don't you think that it's beautiful? A great $8.00 find.

I really like to read Attic24's Blog and she did these cool things with houses as they have lived in their house for one year. So Last night I was going through and old quilting magazine and saw a house that I wanted to make. I stayed up and made one square. I would not put the same fabric strip across the front but I love this block and I think that I may work on a quilt or wall hanging of these houses.

I hope that everyone is having a great day. It has been snowing here on and off all day but not sticking. It's getting colder and since we're not used to it being so cold it just goes to the bone! I hope to have a computer when I go home. I guess that it really got hit hard. If it can't be fixed then I will be shopping tonight!!

Sorry that I'm not good about posting photos. I don't know how to post photos throughout the post. I'll post the house in another post.

Have a glorious day!!
