Ledge Village Expands • Moves

I started my Ledge Village buildings last year for the little ledge in my laundry room. The concept has taken on a life of its own. I continue to design new buildings and add to the village. The laundry room is small and has no room for more buildings. Yesterday, I collected all the various buildings and created a new Ledge Village on the top window ledge up high in the sunroom.


It is a perfect ledge for an expanding village. I started in one corner with the barn and worked my way across town to the town center.




The new addition this past week was the outhouse and swinging tree - backyard necessities.

Here are a few details from along the street.




It is a subtle yet captivating piece of decor. Because I have kept it all white and my walls are Benjamin Moore Navajo white (which is really a warm cream color), the village doesn't jump out at you. As folks sit and visit, they begin to notice the various crafts around the room. And then they realizes there is an entire town watching over you.





I have made the cutting files for all of these houses available through the Silhouette online store here.
