I must admit Judy and I had great fun with this, swapping samples and ideas. I am looking at all my other houses now with a gleam in my eye! Wherever I go now I try to find a DIY shop to get some free samples for my collection. If you want to have a go make sure you get the blown vinyl rather than the embossed paper. The vinyl has a flat back so the bits are much easier to attach. The embossed paper has hollows and ridges and therefore much less contact with the house surface.

I do like this idea of pargeting. Suits this house well.

I am thinking of using no more nails. Julie Hardy thought you might have used this in the past. Any thoughts?


I have posted on the forum, Carol. I would use NMN for this project but if you are not familiar with the properties of the glue- experiment on some thing else first- make something out of wood...lol!

I see here you are thinking of using a beading to strengthen the bond between house and base- good idea. Apply plenty of glue and wipe away the excess. I used curved quadrant beading on a house and it worked well.
