It's always nice to take a break from the architectural stuff and do a fantasy project.
A friend once said, "Oh, Nell, everything is a little house to you!" Not quite true - but certainly anything that is or could be hollow has potential.
I picked up a couple of small bottle gourds at a show a few years ago. One I made into a house almost immediately. For that one, I used the gourd standing upright.
I'd always planned to do the other one lying on its side, with the small end propped up somehow. It seems the time has come - stay tuned!
