It's lovely. So tiny yet so detailed.
But - why is there an axe in the shower?  Shocked

Well, I've already told you how much I love your ATC swap gift, sheepBlue, but I'll say it again, it's amazing!  You should consider making some more of these and putting them in your Etsy shop.

From your photos, I can see that it's actually possible to close the shower curtain--I was curious about that, but didn't want to try it myself, for fear of breaking or tearing something, but, now that I see it's possible, I won't be anxious about doing so.

@elderflower:  There's a shaving razor on the floor of the shower, a drain, and a bottle of shampoo/lotion, with a pump top, but no axe.  Although I certainly have toy axes that I could put there, lol.

could be an aussie one, ours are often separate too. It's handy in a one bathroom house, you don't have to wait for someone to come out of the shower,

I'm not surprised that the Brits and the Aussies have a more logical set up for the bathroom/toilet situation than Americans do  Tongue I can't count the times I had to wait at the peril of my bladder for someone to vacate the bathroom due to showering!

But - why is there an axe in the shower?  Shocked

Axe in the shower?!? Sounds like a Psycho shower...but no really, its a razor....that would be a really really tiny axe...for cutting...human hairs  Grin

Yes! The shower curtain is movable! Though still you'll want to be delicate with it. I coated tissue paper with modge podge to give it a bit more sturdiness and then glued disassembled necklace chain to the top for the rings to pass through. It should be ok to move around. I would have used wax paper originally but had none on hand at the time.

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone! Tiny things are pretty hard to resist  Cheesy

Okay, I think I'll just leave the curtain alone to be on the safe side then, as I don't want to tear it (besides, you can't see all of the fun stuff inside with it closed anyway).  I was sure that the curtain was wax paper from the look/feel of it, I never would have guessed it was tissue paper with a modgepodge coating--well, now I know how to make convincing fake wax paper!

Yeah I like the translucent effect and it does make it hold up longer  Smiley I have used it for bug wings too.

Of course. Now that you tell me, I can see that it is a safety razor.  I must have a very unhinged mind to have thought it could be an axe.  Maybe I watch the wrong kind of films.  Embarrassed

Don't worry, elderflower, I saw an axe too at first glance.  Smiley My mind couldn't comprehend that there would be a miniature razor in there, since they're already so small (yet it had no problem with the idea of an axe, for some reason  Cheesy). But lo and behold, sheepBlue found the way to make that happen. I am in awe of the whole thing. The movable shower curtain is one of my favorite details; I too would be hesitant to attempt it. Lucky Patraw!

" "The Room that Shall Not be Named" just because as essential as it is, generally pop culture ..."

I read that as "poop culture". *sigh* lol I think I need a nap.

I must say, I had to read that twice also  Cheesy
Amazed at the teeny tininess.. very fiddly work but you've pulled it off really well!
