Oh my God! It's gorgeous...in body and soul. So beautifully and cleverly executed. I love the perspective image on the flat door (very Terry Gilliam). Never mind the roof on fire! HA  Grin But I mostly love how it makes me feel. We should all get to love and live in such a happy place!
Well done...AGAIN!!!

I love the refrigerator too. And bottle of beer for scale. But what I really want to know - is there is beer in that tiny fridge?!

a six pack of course! lol

Oh, and the brew is extra fuzzy...ah, I mean FIZZY.

A door that opens so visitors can take a tour.

It was funny, after a while I want SO BADLY to be able to go inside! I pondered making it a sliding "glass" door but finally had to reign in that craziness. I can obsess on details forever... Hmmm, what makes me think you all know what I'm talking about???

You are so welcome. I loved knowing your redecorating plans ahead of time. And I'm sure the foliage was subconciously inspired by knowing you live in a tropical part of the world, too.
Your pictures turned out great. I especially love the surface on which you set it. It's the perfectly modern patio setting  Wink
I hope it shelters you for many love-filled years...and btw, the mortgage is all paid off!  Grin


If you don't mind, I think I'll throw this one up, too. I like it for the scale.

All the roofs on these houses are so awesome... I wish I'd approached mine a bit differently, but I really "needed" to use the imagery I did to go with my interior theme.  Drat!

I know! There are so many great and different ideas so far that I just want to become a teeny-tiny architect and make a whole slew of these...in my spare time  Roll Eyes

Ooo, not a fan of whimsy, eh?  Yikes!

Ah, just the word, actually. Once, as a child, I heard Martha use in reference to her Thanksgiving dinner table. Ack! Scarred for life.

That's so cheery!  Looks like that sneaky teapot is hiding under an adorable hat.

Ah, the yarn arts... they're mysterious to me.

...and I bet you thought I was joking about making a tea cozy Cheesy
...and yes, naturally, my tea pot is very sneaky...
...and btw, thank you for not using any derivation of the word "whimsy"

I think I love thee most because ye was made with nearly instant gratification.



Long, long ago I bought this beautiful yarn off the sale shelf at my LYS. Hand painted, soft, gorgeous. Only 3 balls were to be had so I thought "Oh well, I'll knit a scarf." Well, 3 balls proved to be woefully inadequate for even a scarf. Heartbroken, I tossed it into the basket where I toss such things.
...years went by...
Then one bright and beautiful day I tripped upon this fabulous post by SavageHamster
Elated! Inspired! I proclaimed "I shall have me one of these!"
I started digging through my yarn stash and came upon the long-since-abandon ball-and-a-half of my lovely aforementioned yarn. LIGHT BULB!
To the tossing-basket I went and found the abandond "scarf" still on it's lonely needle. I resumed where I had left off using a seed stitch and these funny "finger fringes" and casting off a hole in the middle for the spout:



I gathered up one side edge creating the "finger fringe pom" on top, and sewed up the ends with room for the handle, and so my cozy was complete.

She had a little modesty issue under the bottom fringe so I picked up and knitted a ribbed underskirt which helps to keep out the draft.




So tomorrow my tea will be, well ... COZY!! Grin
