How astounding!!!  Absolutely fantastic.  I had a book with a Baba Yaga tale that scared the life out of me when I was little.  So fantastic, I love this.

I love Zines!  Let's trade!

Okay I agree that the chicken feet are amazing, but how about putting the bones in the matchbox part?! Great, great, great touch there for a wicked forest theme. Baba Yaga scared the heck out of me as a kid but hero/ines like Prince Ivan and Vasilisa kept me coming back. Simply stunning work on her house!

I always loved those Baba Yaga stories, too!  (I'm a sucker for fairy tales!   Cheesy)  You did such a fabulous job on this!  This rocks, and pinned!!

That is absolutely amazing. Everything from the chicken feet to the house to the bony remains. Fantastic. Cheesy

(I must admit that my first thought was actually Terry Pratchett because there's a house on chicken feet in Witches Abroad.)

the whole thing is AMAZING!  I'm really in awe of what can be done with matchboxes!!  and, as mentioned, the chicken feet are fantastic!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I majored in Russian in college, and never got the whole Baba-Yagga thing.  "What's scary about a stupid house with chicken legs?" I thought.

I get it now.  That's freaky.  Incredibly clever, and freaky.  That would have haunted me if I'd seen it in a fairy tale at six years old!

Wonderful job!

Wow! Really, oh my, that's amazing, I'm breathless. It looks like something out of a Miyazaki Movie. Love the fairy tale quality to it, and your technical skill is astounding.  Shocked

I spent a lot of time gazing at this house and its legs and all the fantastic details, trying to decide what's my favorite detail, but failed. It is so so perfect and desirable! truly a work of art.

Thanks for the chance to see this.
