~little church~

On one of my now not so daily walks I was delighted to discover this little church by the side of a gravel road. It is a scale model made by the father of the man who owns the house in the background. I am told he places it by the gravel road every Christmas and hangs a star above it. The star is barely detectable in two of the photos. I love small country churches and photograph them all the time.
Edited: Some of my readers this morning and CC's grandmother did not realise this was a tiny church. Tiny as in doll house size. Perhaps 18 to 24 inches tall. Olive does not wish to confuse.










 I went kind of crazytown in Picnik today. That is the only snow we will see. For my friends in the Great Britain I know you are covered with snow and are having travel issues for the holiday. I do wish you safe travels and pray for your safety.
I am linking with A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.

  5. Jeanine-it is about 18-24 inches tall I think. In one of the photos you can see the owners house in the background.

  8. That is so cute. That reminds me of a tiny little church (people sized, but small) in my hometown. Even down to the handrails at the front door. You have very neat neighbors.

  24. How precious and uplifting, Olive! I love miniatures and country churches so this is so special.
    Yesterday I went to Americus and on the back roads near Montezuma I saw a tiny replica of a barn. It was sitting by a driveway and they had decorated it for Christmas. I loved it! Love this church too! Hope you and your family have the most blessed Christmas! Best, Vicki

  25. What a lovely thing to do each Christmas. I love it when people do such generous-hearted things - it seems to caputere something of the spirit of Christmas perfectly.

  26. You are master of PICNIK. I thought it was life size too even though you said in the text it was doll size. We bloggers read what we want sometimes....haha
    We've had only dusting of snow! I guess that's a good thing.

  27. Even though I read 18 to 24 inches tall, I see the tiny church as huge. It must be all the spirit and love that went into building it. Merry Christmas!
