Altered Gumball Machine

I love making these gumball machines.  I have a pretty decent collection of them.  My husband might say I have a slight problem.  There are over a dozen in the kitchen waiting patiently for me to alter them.  They do make a mighty fine collection in the mean time.  :)

Can you see the two teeny tiny fairies in there? That is fussy cutting at it's best.  The little house is from Melissa Frances.  I covered it in MME paper and glitter glassed the roof.  The little flower on the front is from Pink Paislee.
The hearts in the yard are pins that I stuck in and then cut the extra pin part off.  The bottle brush tree was dyed pink and dressed up with some pearls.  
The whole house is trimmed with vintage ric rac.  The roof and backyard got some vintage paper flowers.  
The coin slot has been covered up with a pretty disc from Melody Ross. 
The bottom is trimmed in fancy white lace and the gumball slot is covered with felt roses and leaves.  
Here it is again.  I love how it turned out.  
I am entering this one into the current Try it on Tuesday blog challenge.
