House Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the party! Thanks for hopping by my blog, I hope you're enjoying the party. Maria at Gallo Organico has orchestrated this blog hop for us and there are almost 20 artists participating. A month ago Maria challenged several of us to make a house out of the supplies that she provided us. So when I received the package, I knew right away how I would begin. So here's my house, the title is Burnt Toast, and the caption reads Eat Burnt Toast And It Will Make Your Hair Curly. If you would like to receive my little house, just leave me a message in the comment section telling me you would like to be in on the drawing. On Monday evening, I'll use a random generator to choose the winner. After I post the winner's name, please send me your mailing address. Let's keep this party hoppin'! Your next visit will be to Elizabeth at Hootings of an Owl. If at any time you get lost along the way, please feel free to go back to the beginning at Gallo Organico.

Julie,
I love what you did with this! It is so happy and retro and fun all at the same time! It makes me giggle - maybe it's the red chandelier embellies (or maybe it's the margaritas!).
Regardless of what is is, thanks for joining the party!

Cherry said...

Totally retro house Julie - love the beading and feathery flower. Those colours are stunning against the black and white. Have fun hugs Cherry XXX

Kirsti said...

What a fun wee hoosie and the saying is fabulous - where we come from it's 'you need to eat your crusts if you want curly hair'...lol:)...xox

Ruth said...

Great house, loved hearing about the old wives' tale!

Margi said...

Love the vintage feel of you little house! Hope you're enjoying the party...I know I am even though I'm a gatecrasher!

Cheryl said...

Great house! Love your theme - Burnt Toast and curly hair.

Love your retro house....and I'm old enough to remember my grandmother saying burnt toast would make your hair curl!!
Would love to have your little house.

Karen said...

That's a quote I've never heard, and I wish it were true! Love the beads hanging from the roof and the way you've used the photos.

Sian said...

This is just so cute! I love it..it really brought a smile to my face this morning. Party on Julie! (And thanks for visiting me too!)

This made me smile so much and made me think of my dear mum. She always told me that eating your crusts gave you curly hair! Which bacame my excuse for NOT eating them!!!
I love your house, I am so 'into' feathers at the moment and love how you have added some fluff and bling to your design!

Becky said...

Elizabeth said...

humel said...

Wow, Julie - I love how you've put this together! :-) The feathers are so cute, the flowers are lovely, the borders, the beads, the patterns, the title... Oh, it's all fab! I'd definitely like to be 'in on the drawing', thank you xx

Lizzie said...

What a fun little house! I love the blue checked background, the fun quote about toast, the flowers feathers, the photos... well all of it really!

Deb said...

Oh, Julie! I love your house. Love the use of the beads and feather boa on the roof top. This is one of my favorite color combinations too. Nicely done!

Liz said...

I love this and the colours. The caption reminds me of my Gran who used to say something similar. Eating the crusts would make your hair curly. It never did for me though !!

Nancy Y said...

what a fun house! The beads are a terrific additon and what a fun old saying, which goes so well with your background!

I love the use of the bead trim. I have some of that and am dying to use. I was in the house hop but like this post, late to the party. cindy @ snoutkiss.com
