Fellow Craftsters, I present my Rancho Mariposa!
All of my tiny houses together. First, from Doctor Whaddayoudoinghere, the gingerbread house. Second, from Loves2Experiment, a poetry cottage. Third, from Ninaprettyballerina, a (remodeled) seaside house. Fourth is mine; the only salvageable house from my first batch and fifth, one from the batch I sent to partners, plus tiny critters.
In order of arrival:
From Ninaprettyballerina, who had the minor misfortune of printing out her template at 150%. I really hope you don't mind, but I "remodeled" your house. I took it down to inchie size and reattached all the interior decor. It is really cute!
Front view. The party banners ended up on the roof, but I think it was just that kind of party!
This is the only new piece I added; this side of the roof. The rest of the original roof became a cozy rug inside. This wall previously was all large windows, now only one. Still a good view for the ocean.
Had a heck of time getting this shot, but the inside is all furnished! A full bookcase, a big bed with a runner at the foot, some art on the wall. The party place is decked out.
Thank you, Ninaprettyballerina!
Next in the neighborhood came the lovely poetry cottage from Loves2Experiment.
Front view. I really
like this red door. I want this door on my real house.
An Emily Dickinson quote for the side. [Not sure if you knew, Loves, but I am quite a poetry fan.]
Isn't this roof great? It has a wonderful texture.
More celebration! A party banner along the back of the house. My Rancho is rocking.
Thank you, Loves2Experiment!
Third, from Doctor Whaddayoudoinghere, the gingerbread house!
It has been mentioned previously, but the gingerbread is a craft foam so it has a thickness like you would think of for a gingerbread house. The white paint icing is kinda giving me a bit of a sweet tooth. He enclosed a nice card and note, too (not pictured). This cute house came with its own landing pad. Now, all it needs is a witch and a giant oven and I can put it in a dark forest!
Thank you, Doctor Whaddayoudoinghere!
My excellent neighborhood; it is very sweet. Thank you all for the great houses and the great swap. This gallery thread is tiny eye-candy.
