Jar houses

Made “mushroom jar” houses from polymer clay with my 6yo son, at a local art workshop. You can put little candles inside.

? Mom’s house: a cross between Enid Blyton and the Shire, with pink roses in the windowsill, tidy pebbles about the perimeter and a jaunty gold gnome-hat roof.

? 6yo’s house: Has blue arms, turbo jets, and a door that looks like it’s going to eat you. And blueberries in the sill.

Question: which one is more original?
