Thanks! I figured the fairy's would look for the prettiest, most colorful stones to build with.  Grin

I used sculpey granitex for the stones. Most of the other things are made from sculpey III. The roof is indeed pine cone pieces glued to a clay roof. I used an acorn cap as a roof topper and another acorn cap is being used as the little frogs water bowl.
Thank you! I'm really flattered that people like it!  Grin

 Shocked Super cute!! I love all the attention to detail, like the garden and clothes hanging on the line. The whole scene is inspiring...I thought my clay days were over.

Thanks! xo lisa ox

The crocheted bits in the house are awesome.  The whole project is great overall, but I really like the detail that went into adding in the bedspread, afghan, and rug.

Aww thanks for the comments you guys. I'm sorry I haven't been around to reply lately.  Cheesy

@ cindy602 - Thank you so much! Grin

@ crochetedkitten - I hope they do as well! Every so often my kitties stop what they're doing and stare at it like they hear something going on inside. No worries though, I have it sitting in a safe place. Wink

@ lisacarlotta - Thank you so much! I'm flattered to have inspired someone!

@ oz_lzrd - I have passed your compliments on to my friend with the tiny crochet skills, she's flattered as well! (And I adore the tiny crochet pieces too!)

@ Jazz the Spazz - I'm so pleased your cousins enjoyed it! I'm very proud of it, it's the first time I've ever made something like this.  Grin
