Creativity to the max!

I'm amazed to see the level of detail that's been incorporated in a doll's house version of Bag End, the home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. The creator, Maddie Chambers, has modeled it after the home portrayed in the film version of the trilogy. She writes about it, along with plenty of pictures, on her blog.

Here are some close-up pictures of her workmanship.

There are dozens more photographs at the link. Click on them for larger views (larger than shown above, too). They make very interesting viewing.

I marvel at the amount of detail she's managed to include. I can't imagine how many hours of work went into so intricate a piece of design and construction: but congratulations to Ms. Chambers on a remarkable example of creativity.

Um... does this classify as an obsession??? :-) Fantastic detail though!

I seem to recall that a builder is actually building houses like those shown in the movie. There are already a number of "earth contact" homes across the country.

I wouldn't be surprised if they sold well (especially in tornado/hurricane climes.)
