Camelama!  So cheery!  You really did get your engineer's hat on for that!

Is that Gibbon Scale you're using there?   Kiss  Also love the Wallace Scale in the 2nd photo!  It looks like he could live there!

Thanks so much for including that pic of the interior before it was installed, annacharlotte!  Not only is it better for the gallery, but I saved a copy to my file so I can have a better look.  I don't even know who the teeniness of it can be appreciated in it's true itty-bittiness in pictures.  Crazy wee!

Ax-man looks like a surplus store we used to have around here called Wacky Willy's.  I've gotten some cool crafting supplies there - that were not meant to be crafting supplies (and some that were).

I am so looking forward to future rounds of this swap!  I really am excited about the idea of having tiny works of architecture designed and executed by such a variety of artisans! 

Jenicat, I'm glad you got a laugh!  I giggle when I prepare for and take those shots.  And don't ya' know, Dragon is the new ruler.

Once Barbolot gets her pics up, we'll be done.  It's kind of sad.  I am glad that things will likely be wrapped up nicely (no flakes, etc.) before I head off on vacation next week.

Yes, in one piece!  If you don't include the contraband extra included in the package.  Ahem.  Thank you so much for putting so much effort into making it fit my shelf!  It's so much more detailed than I expected something that would fit could be when this swap started.  Hoo!

I didn't see a note so I'll have to go back and dig around the box. I figured out the roof thing and my camera gets it, but the sun was giving me trouble, as I mentioned in the gallery.  I'll try again.

I LOVE IT!

I know, right?  The best shot for scale is the one peeking in the roof where you can see my fingers.  My hands are not tiny like bsonlytoots. They are of the long and narrow variety, but not freakishly so.  Unless I'm shopping for gloves.   Grin

TH01 Swappers, I hope you're ready for a non-tiny number of photos!

So it's more than just a house, it's real estate property.  We like to call it "cozy," but we all know that's code for "tiny" and boy is this place tiny. 

First the box:

Clever Annacharlotte!

Behold the front elevation:

It's got curb appeal!

Behold the back elevation:

Low maintenance back yard!

[whoops!  hit post way ahead of time]

Ooo, the door is ajar!  Can we see a bit of a bench and table there?

Look at that little gate!  It's got to be about 1/4 of an inch tall at most.

Gotta get a better look at the interior, so I peeled back the roof a bit.

It was hard to get a pic because the house is TINY, the sun was both low and bright and I kept casting a shadow.  What's in there is a bench, table, 2 plates and a vase of flowers!  ITTY effin BITTY! Also, there is art hung on the 2 side walls.  You can kind of see one in this shot.

In it's environs:

I will try to get a photo from a better angle so you can see the background better.

And of course, a shot for scale

 (Scale is 1:2-headed dragon for those keeping track)

If you're unfamiliar with the dragonscale, I have this one, too:

(That's Standard Sumoscale for those keeping track)
And that sumo guy box was a surprise extra included in the package!  He opens (obviously) and holds a bit of rice with some chopsticks.  I'm not exactly sure what he means, but he seems pretty serious about it.

THANK YOU ANNACHARLOTTE!  This was so worth the wait!  It's a perfect beginning to what I hope to be a fun and inspiring serious of swaps leading to a cherished collection!

It's here!  It's awesome!  I took pics, but am running out of time to get them posted with all the other Friday afternoon things I need to do.  Am really going to try to get them resized and uploaded tonight, tho!  It's adorbs and is just right for the top right cubby on my cabinet!

So this morning I looked up the whereabouts of my house with my DC# and all it said was that it had been processed in Minneapolis.  Sigh.  Imagine my surprise to find it in my mailbox when I got home from work!  WHEE!  It's so awesome!  And SOOOOO tiny!  I have to do a few more work-related things, but then I will photograph and post in the gallery!  It's actually a gorgeous, sunny day here, too.

Amazing!  Good for you!  There's just something about someone else's mess that's a bit grosser than your own - even family's.
