Surprise!

17 Mar

I am a big fan of the picture puzzles where two seemingly identical pictures are shown side by side and the reader is asked to list the things that are different. It might be a color of the scarf, a position of a hand, a missing hat, etc. So here is my feeble attempt at this game.

First what is missing from the picture?

Something seems to be missing!

A clue would be to ask yourself, “What am I looking at?

Do you give up?

Huh?

Well, do you?

Do you see it now?

If you guessed David Winter’s Woodcutter’s hut, you would be correct!!

My newest addition to my collection of little houses! I’m so proud. Thank you Linda M.

Almost as soon as my Little Houses post was published, I got a Facebook message from a friend telling me about a new posting on eBay. Needles to say I jumped all over it. And, lucky for me, I still have both arms and legs as the price was very reasonable. The collector I purchased from shipped it the same day. It was like Christmas when the box showed up on my doorstep. After thirty years of waiting. It is special to have this piece in my collection.

Now, about that Crofter’s Cottage? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I didn’t read your first post but I KNEW this was Liliput Lane from the picture. I have loads of them. I used to collect them too but sadly they are now missing various parts from destruction child. I don’t think I have one piece that doesn’t have some damage. Great pieces.

      You are correct on the existing pieces. The new one is from the David Winter collection circa 1983 and has been fairly hard to come by. I am sorry to hear about your collection.

        I’m sorry if I poured salt in a gaping wound. Please forgive. ;-(

        The wound gaped wide a while ago.. but destruction child is on his own personal mission and so the wound had to heal pretty darn quick. I could catalogue all of the losses courtesy of destruction child, but I fear you would need to reach for the Kleenex.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        I’m not proud. I’ll sob openly. I can only imagine.
