Welcome to the House Party Blog Hop! Last month, I sent envelopes full of paper and embellishments to blog friends all over the world. They all used them to create altered houses, and today they're ready to share them with you. Please join us on the blog hop to see the wonderful creations. Each blog will have a link to allow you to easily follow the circle. If at any time you get lost or find a broken link, you can find the entire list of blogs at the end of my post, so you can jump on the circle in a different place. It's possible, with the various time zones, that there may be a bit of confusion o time lag here or there, so please bear with us if this happens!
My house is titled "Life is a Circus," and it features some Hungarian postage stamps and a picture of myself on the Eiffel Tower. Even if my life is a circus, it's a happy life!
I wanted to also share a picture of my IRL house, so you can see where I create. I live in a town called El Granada in California. It's on the coast, about 25 south of San Francisco.
Come on in and join the party! If things get too crowded inside, feel free to go out back and enjoy the garden. There's a nice bench by the vegetable patch (where you can see the birdhouse my talented DD Clara made):
Thanks for stopping by - please leave a comment noting whether you are a first time visitor, long time lurker/first time commenter or old friend. I'll come up with a nice give-away for a few of you who leave comments. Ooops the doorbell's ringing - gotta go let in more party-goers. . .
