I sketched this dapper gent in a tux and embroidered his bow tie through the paper.

I'll Be Home for Christmas

We're using this '50s metal dollhouse (a recent thrift purchase) on our Christmas mantel! It has a mirror behind it and lights strung through it, giving the windows a lovely festive glow!

Billings Estate

Billings Estate a.k.a. Park Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, was built between 1827 and 1829 for for Braddish and Lamira Billings. The Estate was designated a National Historic Site in 1968 and became a museum in 1975. It has a cemetery on the property with graves dating to 1820. 
This home is a great example of Georgian architecture for its landscaped lot, symmetry, wooden cladding, paired chimneys, dentil moulding, portico, dormer windows, and 5 bays of multi-paned windows with a centered door occupying the middle bay on both floors. 
It is sensible and elegant.
