The Rug

Over the weekend we found a small rug that resembles the rug in Jan's family home from the 1960s. It's just the right size for the Christmas scene house we are making.

Here is a photo showing a corner of the rug and other pieces that may be used in the scene. You get a peak a few things.

It is so hard to concentrate on my real life work! Wish I could just work on the scene till it is done.

Over the weekend I've done some research on roofs and trying to decide what to do. A thatched roof would be adorable, could be made with straw, tied and bundled. Dutch farm houses often had red S shaped tiles, called pantiles. I have photos of them at the living history center and find their history interesting. Another option could be slate roofs, squared or even shaped.

I'm wondering if there are composition roof tiles that look like slate that could be cut to shape, may be the quickest solution since it is now November 4 and we must get this project finished to be in position by Thanksgiving weekend.
