I’m nuts over these teeny tiny clay houses! They’re made by an American artist named Laurie, who’s currently living in Holland —  just a few steps down a cobblestone road from Rembrandt’s birthplace.

For the colored houses, Laurie uses real pigments from the Old World, ground by a windmill in Holland. She offers architecture examples from Amsterdam, Italy, Paris — even the French countryside. I think they make the most charming collection. I want one of each!

Wouldn’t they make the cutest (tiny!) souvenir from a trip to Europe?
