Grand Elfin Pinecone Castle!

In my looking about for something else, I ran across a big bag of pine cone "petals"( I am sure this not their scientific name) ...the little parts the squirrels chew off as they look for the nuts inside. At one time I made roofs out of these, using them for "shakes." It suddenly gave me the inspiration of making something whimsical, the aire of a magic woodland castle...
And voila !

 This house is almost 15" tall!  the front is nice looking and the back open for play.  The door in front does not open, but provokes the imagination.
  A table and two chairs come and there are green wool rugs on the floors.  There are acorn caps on the roof tops.  All is well and happy here!
