Not many people like the color purple,
but I have a little witch named "Violet"
who just adores the color PURPLE!
She has been hinting for quite some time
now that she would really like it if I would
build her a small cottage.
[Oh yeah, that is just what I need, a PURPLE house!]
I do agree with her on the reference to small,
but I am really struggling with the color PURPLE.
I suppose that I could use A LOT
of white around the windows and door, plus
I could also consider adding plenty of
"gingerbread" to all of the eaves, as well!
Sounds good to me.
Violet is an Aquarian, so she does exhibit
For starters, she wears quite a bit of PURPLE,
and she decorates with it as well.
Her kitchen is unusual, to say the least.
You have never seen anything like it!
[I will have to go out to the workshop
and dig about in the boxes to find it and photograph it.
It is truly one-of-a-kind!!!]
Today, I'm posting a photo of Violet and her
nearest neighbor, who also likes the color PURPLE.
Sweet "Violet," a little witch.

|This is an ancient screen that will be used in the PURPLE cottage.|
|A well-worn armchair. It belonged to Violet's grandfather and she refuses to replace it.|
Obviously it has seen better days, but Violet insists that it is comfortable and has a lot of life left in it.

|This is side # 1|
Picture window is being test-fitted.
As I was cutting out the hole for the first window, the vibration of the jigsaw snapped a section along the grain lines leaving me with a gap that has to be remedied, thus the scrap.
|The two shops will sit upon a small snowy foundation.|
|This is a winter birdhouse that will stand by the door of Santa's Workshop./|
My buildings will get the snow treatment that these little houses have...
Let it Snow!!!
|This second birdhouse will stand by the other shop's door.|
I thought these were so cute.
They are going to be my inspiration for the Village itself...lots of snow!

The movie Chocolat melted my heart!
Having lived in France as a teenager, the nostalgic street scenes and shops brought back many warm, fuzzy memories.
I wanted to capture some of that in a roombox.
When I saw this table it struck a cord with me. It was an ah-ha moment...I'll create a chocolate shop!
Then, I stumbled upon this precious girl eating chocolate. Another ah-ha moment erupted. Of course, perhaps it was she who overturned the chocolate syrup. ??? Do you think? She is after all in possession of a bowl of chocolate frosting! Hmm.
Do you catch a storyline developing? I certainly do.
|Someone has created quite a MESS!|
This piece is total inspiration.
My plan is to use it in a Chocolat display box.
|One of the close up shots.|
|A broad shot.|
|Every shop has to have an ACCIDENT now and then!|
|Could this be THE culprit caught in the act?|
Perhaps. We shall see.
|What a waste of perfectly good chocolate!!!|
