Vintage Style Christmas House Project

My Mom and I did a fun project over the weekend. I had bought these paper mache houses about a year ago...and we finally got around to painting and decorating them.
Originally I had intended to paint them creme and other soft colors...but who am I kidding...I am a color girl!


I really love this teal with a red roof! On the roof I just used the cheap snow that comes in a bag...and I had found these "kitschy" reindeer at an antique store, and love the way he makes this house look more "vintagey"!

On this green house...I used silver glass glitter on the roof for alot of sparkle.

This little pink house looks like a puff of cotton candy...I made this one to go in Lucy's room to put under the white feather boa tree I put on her dresser...it will look so magical.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Have you tried this??

I remember my Mom making this for me as a child, but I had completely forgotten about it...well, I recently bought some...and let me just say....It is Delicious!!!

You take 4 cups of skim milk and one of the discs of chocolate and heat in a sauce pan until it boils, add sugar to taste! It is chocolatey with hints of cinnamon.

I think you will LOVE it!!!
