This elf's house was constructed from an old mesquite log, then the addition was sculpted
out of clay and fired in a kiln  There are lights in the fireplace and in the top of the log.
Part of the roof lifts off so you can see inside, as in the second photo above.
The front and back doors are working doors and were hand carved with floral designs - each of the handles is a carved leaf.

You will have to guess what some of the other materials are that were used for this project!
-but we will tell you if you guess right :)

Here's some close-ups of the doors and the window planter.  There is also a "wood spirit"
face carved in the front of the house, up near the top, but he was apparently hiding when
the photos were taken.
