I think this is my favorite so far. The over-one display window is a fabulous touch. Though I will admit that it was something of a mystery stitch since I'd never seen a model photo. The doll, candlestick and stars were perfectly obvious on the chart. The rectangle in the center was a bit more difficult but I eventually realized it was going to be a painting of a house. But the little red hen in the lower corner only revealed itself when fully stitched. Seen only as black symbols on a white page, there was no way I could figure out what was coming.

Sorry for the dark indoor photo but if I wait for sunshine it could take weeks. The sun is playing games with me, shining brilliantly until I pick up a camera and then ... well, by the time I have got the shot set up, it is miserably overcast again.
I did a bit of changing here, eliminating the Est. 1990 sign which I thought broke up the brick wall in a particularly unattractive fashion, pretty much splitting the building in two separate visual halves. I also switched out some of the greys for WDW greys I had on hand rather than the ones called for which would have required a purchase. And finally, instead of doing the glass in the called for Taupe like the roof, I stitched it in Hydrangea: a blue to white colorway that gave the kinds of shadowy look you really see when looking at windows.
