So here's what I did with the steps

This is a spackle/glue/paint mixture. Once it is dry I will highlight the grout lines and dry brush color onto the bricks.
I decided to name my little house, or at least give it an address. Magnolia Way is for the magnolias in the bathroom and 509 is for May 2009 when I received the gift.

I decided not to use any of the lacey gingerbread. It just doesn't seem to suit this house. Instead I used the flat trim in the peaks and I did use the little peak trim pieces. I just didn't punch the hearts out. I also added more of the flat trim in patterns around the house. I really like how it turned out. I just have shingles and painting the steps to do then the exterior is finished!

I put a piece of paper inside the window so you can see the "stained glass" detail. The other upstairs windows have half of this design in a half circle pattern.

De, I really like the way you did the steps! The stained glass window is gorgeous. Love the way you came up with the house's address. :-)

I built this house too! It really neat to see how some else finishs it! I didn't put the fussy trim on it either. I also put grids in my windows! One of these days I;ll post my pics!

Can't wait to see your house, Heather!
