Big Gnome Tree House

 This is one of the larger projects I have done for Gnomes and wee folk.  The idea is for group play and things that would inspire boys as well as girls.  It is made from aspen as most my houses are.  I tried to think of making objects that would inspire ideas and be versatile for playing in many ways, like the mine tree stumps and climbing blocks.  The split rails make good fences but also can be laid out to make a road or path or a garden plot.  I was inspired to add the flag --as this whole project was making think so much  of  Tree Forts, such we played at with kids. We always made a flag!  The flag post comes apart from the stump to store inside.
 I hope this inspires many little ones for hours of fun play.
