I took part in the fantastically amazing wicked forest matchbox swap and this is what I made...



I used my matchbox as a base and put a tiny cabin with looming trees atop.



Sure it looks sweet there... but when the sun goes down, ominous flickering lights appear in the windows!

The trees are so grand and the light in the windows makes it seem ominous. Smiley

I liked this (a lot) when I first saw it (in the swap gallery), but seeing it again, I like it even more.

Not to sound too geeky, but the proportion of the trees to the house is just perfect.

That is so cool. The lights are really good. What did you use to light it up?

It's one of those little electronic tealights. There's a switch on the bottom of the base to turn it on and off.

The house, the trees, the light, all together make it perfect.

Truly a piece of art. It belongs in the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC.
