I made this house for mandykaye in the Make A Friend Swap. Smiley  It's not my usual craft, so I spent a ton of time on it, mostly trying to figure out if it would come out okay or not! Wink  I purchased a paper mache house from Hobby Lobby and was concerned that it was too small, but it certainly wasn't. Smiley

The completed house:


A birds eye view of the roof:


I wanted a second floor, but it had to be removeable.  No, I wasn't quite ready to make a staircase, maybe next time.  Hubby came up with this idea:

The second floor sits on the wood and removes easily.

The dining room:


The living room:


The second story bedroom.  The second floor removes by way of grasping the bench and lifting gently.


And just because I was so darned proud of myself for making these flowerpots...they are tiny clay pots with dried moss, chenille stems and buttons!


Thanks for looking! Smiley
