Little #1
One of the people who toured our house on the local home tour in December, recently brought us this little model of our house.

It was produced on a 3-D printer from a computer-aided drawing; and is made of plastic without seams.  I don't understand the process, but it sure is cute.  Oh, modern technology!!

Little #2
Since I didn't win the Powerball this past week, I can't buy my often dreamed-of log cabin in the Colorado mountains.  My first mistake was not buying a Powerball ticket, I guess.  At any rate, I compensated myself by buying this little log cabin at a Denver antique mall this weekend. 
 I remember in my childhood these little log cabin incense burners were available for purchase at every kitchy souvenir shop in Colorado during the 1940s.  This one has never been used, is well made, and is 3 1/2" tall.  I think it will be cute to use next Christmas with my collection of bottle-brush trees.

Little #3
I couldn't go antiquing in Denver for the weekend without buying a piece of brown transferware.
This little cup measures just 2".

And now the big thing -- a view of America's mountain -- Pike's Peak taken on the ride home from our road trip to Denver on a beautiful Colorado day - 38 degrees and sunny!
