My dad, myself and brother are all nerds.  My mom somehow resisted for 25 years until she had surgery last summer and was in bed for a month or so.  We somehow convinced her to read the Lord of the Rings triology, when she was done she said she was a hobbit

So as a late mothers day gift I made her a hobbit hole.  Its just regular clay that is supposed to be kiln dried but I have no access to one so its thouroughly air dried.

The flowers are actually dmc floss dipped in tacky glue and stuck on after the paint was dried.

This is more true to color and shows the detail of the painting better.

On the right is my mothers wood pile for those cool summer nights.  The wood shed is made out of toothpicks and the logs are tubes of clay.

On the left are her watermelons. And yes, they are average sized watermelons, thats why they are almost as big as the door. Smiley  The fence to keep the pesky dwarves out is made of toothpicks and hemp rope and was a PAIN.

And here is my poor neglected daughter waiting for me to finish so she can come out of her pen and play.

how sweet and thoughtful!!  and all those lovely details!!
may i suggest that as you don't have access to a kiln you work with polymer  or air drying clay???

hope your mum is better now!!
