June's House

tiny house carving by Connie H.
May 2018
This tiny house carving arrived in the mail last week. It's amazing and adorable.

Connie (Far Side of Fifty) has a snow stick contest every year where her blog readers guess when all the snow in her Minnesota yard is completely melted at the Snow Stick. This year, she added a contest to guess when a large pile of snow (plowed from her driveway) she named June would disappear completely. My guess was April 27, 2018.

June disappeared on the 186th day of winter - April 30, 2018. Since my guess was the closest to that date, I won the contest, and I received a bark carving by Connie.

Connie and her husband (Far Guy) have been carving for several years and create beautiful hand-carved Christmas ornaments for multiple family members and friends each year. They design and create the ornaments throughout the year, and Connie adds a bit of paint to enhance the details. Connie and Far Guy also teach others the craft. You can read about their carving and classes here.




I am beyond thrilled to have one of Connie's creations. It reminds me of a garden fairy house.

Thank you, Connie for hosting the fun contests on your blog, and for sending me this adorable tiny house. I love it!
