I built my toadhouse so Mrs Toad would have a cozy home among the flowers in my flower garden.  It's about 6" in diameter.  I began with terra cotta clay, made coiled walls, topped it with a mushroom roof & cut an opening for a door.  When it hardened a bit, I carved in the details.  Topping it off, there's even a tiny ladybug crawling on the roof.
