Two houses received today and 5 photos.

First from TheSavoyTruffle, the front of the house:



The words say "stars and infinite darkness" and I love the eyeball door handle.

The back view:



Thanks so much Caitlin.

And from SonjaBoo, the front:



Okay, I love spiders. All shapes and sizes. I have owned 2 tarantulas...

Open the front of the house and...



And the back:



Thanks so much Erika - it's great.
Both houses are. And they are both so TINY compared to what I made. I feel so clunky but I guess that's in the spirit of the swap...Huh

Ah, more lovely houses!  I love checking out this gallery Cheesy

NH822, those aren't actual playing cards Tongue  Though they do sell Alice in Wonderland playing cards online...I've seen them somewhere!

Both houses are. And they are both so TINY compared to what I made. I feel so clunky but I guess that's in the spirit of the swap...Huh

Well...it is the chunky house swap...so some houses are bound to be chunkier that others Wink  Your houses are just fine, Smmarrt! Smiley

Two more houses I made have been received.

This one was for audio-astrophysics.


I found an image of a forest and tweaked it in Photoshop to make it appear bleak.  I saw that a lot of audio-astrophysics wists had birds or human bodies with bird heads so that was my inspiration for this.  The outfit is from the 1880s to 1890s and the head I hand-drew.  The human head of the small bird-creature was drawn by Edward Gorey.  I used orange foil that has something to do with baking (not quite sure what) to make the bars of the cage.  Yes, the shape is supposed to be a cage.

This one was for szuzu1969.


My inspiration for this is one of my favorite poems by Shel Silverstein.  The shape is fashioned after a bat box or bat home.  I used an image of a baby vampire bat.  I looked through SO MANY bat images to find one that would convey cuteness and also have the mouth open.  The other bats were drawn by Edward Gorey.
