I'm a creature with short attention span and consequently have way too many interests - one of which is building dollhouses. I posted a peek inside the living room awhile back:
I have a relatively small eight room dollhouse and the attic floor still isn't done. I've had this dollhouse for....over 15 years and there are few things in this world I value more. It's one of the 5 things I'd take with me if my house were burning down (never mind how impractical and crazy I'd look lugging out a dollhouse out of a burning life sized house). My dad built my dollhouse out of a kit and it's always been a dream of mine to design and build a ginormous dollhouse from scratch! Locations in fantasy books always particularly inspire me - Mercedes Lackey, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings....
And someone actually did it!
Maddie Chambers starting posting pictures of her amazing miniature recreation of Bilbo's Bag End a couple years ago and they went semi-viral due to the sheer size and detail of her work. I saw in on Geekologie while I was still in college (god I feel old) and have semi-stalked her ever since just see the updates she added as time went on. Now her little creation is traveling around the world supporting children's literacy ^_^ Goes to say that you should just do what you love I suppose :)
You know what is even crazier? Maddie isn't the only one to make crazy detailed replicas of Bag End. A livejournal user, Obelia, made a hobbit hole too! I don't want to split hairs but I like this version even more :D I love the cozy, plaster walls :) Go here to see the many pics of the interior. She even decorated the place for Christmas! I think she built the dollhouse in 2005 (when I graduated high school) and I still remember how amazed I was seeing all the little details.
Yeah...so random but
