Castle Durin - Now Open

This is what Mom has been working on for, like, a gazillion hours. She wanted to make a home for her population of Small Folk. So off she went to Michaels to get -


But it required extensive remodeling,
as you can see. 

It required foamboard, glue, paint and a lot of work with an Xacto knife, which Mom says is very, very sharp. Most of this was done on the porch, so we had to do our snoopervision on the other side of the screen door. As IF we'd get into glue. Or paint.

After all that, it required a name - Castle Durin. (if you don't know, Durin is the family name for the dwarves Thorin, Fili and Kili). And this afternoon, FINALLY, the Small Folk took up residence in their new home.                                                    

 We hope everyone will be quite happy in Castle Durin.


  1. Wow, your mom did that? Fantastic!

    (Ssshhhh, don't tell your mom we said this, but the Small Folk look like fun toys to us. Whap! Whap! Whap!)

  2. Great job!

    We agree with Fuzzy Tales - those look like great toys.

  3. I want a castle like that... only KITTY sized!

  4. That is so cool-your Mom is really talented. OUr Mom likes little ones also but they don't have a nice castle-I think she's pretty jealous. ;-)

  5. So your Mom found furniture--hurrah!

  6. WOW! We're so impressed by your mom! Castle Durin looks AWESOME!
