A Haunting we will go...


I love little houses. I always have. It started with a dollhouse my Mom and Dad built. Then, it was a Barbie dream house. Then, a little mouse house with mice from England living inside. In the Fall, I crave little haunted houses. I love this one made by the "ever-so talented" Heather Hussey. She used Target K & Company papers. The line is called Marcella. It can be purchased here: http://www.target.com/Trick-Treat-Page-Project-Kit/dp/B001E4U5W4/qid=1222096954/ref=br_1_5/602-8960605-9975033?ie=UTF8&node=702404011&frombrowse=1&rh=&page=1
Heather decorated a bird house to make this spooky home. Don't you think she needs to start her own blog? She has such great ideas... The project below Heather's is one of mine. It is sold as a make-n-take from K & Company. I recommend emailing K & Company to find out about purchasing it. All the pieces are included to make the little house mini book (534414). The cool factor is when you pull the striped paper under the word "Thrills" the large ghost in the window disappears. I love interactive books! They are spooktacular!! Kara
