New Tar Paper Star

I am such a fan of the site Fun and VJs, run by Anita in Brisbane, Australia.  She has a Queenslander house, which, to be honest, I'd never even heard of before reading her blog, but now I know it is a lovely architectural style native to Queensland in Australia, developed in the 1840s and still in use today, characterized by verandas, raised living spaces, and corrugated metal roofs.  VJs refers to Vertical Join timber, locally referred to as tongue and groove.
Anita's sow's-ear-turned-silk-purse is our latest Tar Paper Star, so check out her site and read more at the Tar Paper Stars link above.
