That house is awesome.  So is the landscaped plot.  It looks terrific on your shelf.

My place is usually tidier than this.

The teensy-ness of that fantastic little house is mind boggling!  Thanks for the shot with your fingers!  And the shelf is so perfect.  Want one!

The amount of detail is just amazing...I'm really feeling lame for mine being so simple.

A few things...

First of all, that house is wonderful.  I love how rustic it looks, and how detailed everything is...

Second of all, Mistress, you made me laugh.  You and your damn dragon for scale.  Smiley  This is one of the first times this week I've really laughed.  Thank you.  Smiley

And the red tape!  So clever.  So so clever.

I am so looking forward to future rounds of this swap!  I really am excited about the idea of having tiny works of architecture designed and executed by such a variety of artisans! 

Jenicat, I'm glad you got a laugh!  I giggle when I prepare for and take those shots.  And don't ya' know, Dragon is the new ruler.

Once Barbolot gets her pics up, we'll be done.  It's kind of sad.  I am glad that things will likely be wrapped up nicely (no flakes, etc.) before I head off on vacation next week.

I love the rustic feel, and is that a juniper tree in the garden? They smell so divine.
Thanks for the sumo-scale, T. You know that dragon still throws me for a loop.
annacharlotte, you've taken tiny to a new level! Man alive!!
So glad it finally arrived despite all of the red tape. I was worried about our MissT being homeless in the dead of winter.

(and yes, T, I'm happy now...but I will miss you, none the less  Kiss )

I hope you all will indulge me in a little extra-picture-posting...I took some interior shots before the interior went inside cuz I was afraid it would be tricky to take a picture of something that is smaller than the lens of my camera...

Tiny table, plates and flowers...

Roofless house, craft detritus...

Interior, with slightly more visible shot of the 70's wall art (clipped from a 70's knitting magazine, framed in twigs)

Now I'm really being self-indulgent, but I liked the way the light looks in this one

And the fence assemblage

That's what took me the longest.  Making that furniture was sooo fun...even though I dropped all the pieces like 40 times and many of my ideas for plate-creation failed miserably (in case anyone is wondering if it is possible to make a papier mache bowl that is smaller than your pinky finger, I will tell you right now it is not).  

This really got my inner eight year old sooo excited.  Did anyone else read The Borrowers http://www.amazon.com/Borrowers-Mary-Norton/dp/B000O3LVJC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1235235997&sr=1-3 when you were little?  It's about these tiny people that live in people's houses and "borrow" things...endlessly inspirational to a young dollhouse-furnisher, let me tell you.  The father had a cane that was a hat pin...I can't think right now of any other repurposed items, but I just kept walking around going "oooh, I could make a this out of that!"

Most of the materials used to make the house were found at the golf course where I take my dog to run.  The twigs were the shapely _____s that I found and posted about.  The floor of the interior is made out of these funny pods that look a little like mahogany or some other fancy wood when you take the seeds out and...ahem...smash them flat and....um....iron them....and...then cut them into tiny strips (remember the post where I asked if anyone else felt like they were going insane while making their house?  This is more or less what I was referring to).  There is also a tiny rug, which you can kind of see in  the first photo, but it's another bit from the pod, these little pale seed-casings that, also when ironed, look a lot like the sort of skin/fur rug that a hippy family living in the woods might have under their kitchen table.

Okay, now that you all know how weird and obsessive I am, let's move on, shall we?  

Can't wait to see miss Camelama's dwelling!!!  I'm sad this is almost over...  I think the there's just one other pair that has not yet received....dazedllama and ritapizza.  So 3 more houses to go!

Oh, and by the way, big ups to the folks that make E-6000 glue.  Holy cow.  It doesn't look like a single twig in the fence is out of place....the stuff is strooooong!  This is the first time I've really used it and I totally heart it.
