Parade of Homes

This week I wanted to share the pictures of the finished parade house. We won first place in our price category and then to our surprise, we won best in show out of the 58 houses in the parade. We are still in shock and so darn excited we can't hardly stand ourselves! If you read my earlier post "you just gotta laugh," you remember all the crazy things that happened when I was trying to get this house finished. So, to win best in show is such an honor.
Have a great week.
This week IGF the fact that hard work does pay off and the fact that I'm halfway through my 19 days straight of working and my art retreat is closer.

Hi Michelle, WOW, I love your home. What an honor for sure. I looked through your blog. I love your bunnies!!! I also saw you mention your bunny bag in Haute handbags. I saw that and didnt know it was yours. How exciting is that??? I would love to have something published by Somerset! Maybe someday! Happy creating. gail

That is wonderful! I wish I had that much space. I live in an apartment. It is an old 20's L.A. apartment and I love it but I wish I could stretch it to be a little larger.
You ahve done a great job on it!
Bless you, Lilli
