Etched Metal House Completed...READY to Give Away

At last the etched metal house is complete.The walls are attached and steady and the roof is on...all windows and doors open Ok.My etched metal house is 11cm high and 6cm at its widest.This is the first time I have made something personal to give away so I am hoping it goes to someone who will treasure it.If anyone would like to try to win the etched metal house all you need to do is leave a comment and your first name so I know who you are.If you don't have a blogger account then just send me an e-mail instead(its at the right hand side from here).After two weeks I'll randomly draw out the winner. Oh If you want to see the detail more of each side look at the posts below this one Ok.They also explain a few items that I have used as well.

Front door above and door open from the side below

Same side with door closed.Optical lens is folded under the window here but if you haven't seen what is under the windows look in the posts below this one

Other side window is next

Lastly is the back door

and with its door open

How exciting and I look forward to seeing who wins the house that Annette built LOL

Just look at all of the imagination you have managed to include in this house. Lots of thought, love, memories, not to mention talent. I have enjoyed watching this come to fruition and have my fingers crossed that it will find its way to Texas!

Wow this would be quite the win Annette! I would cherish it forever! Reminds me a little of a Micheal Demingo! How do you spell his name?? Love his art too though. One day I am going to make some myself. I love sculpture. When my kids are bigger I will weld again! Would love to do metal jewellry too. This would be an awesome thing to swap on don't cha think? Wonder how many sculptors we might have in the group? Hugs, Sanna

KAT said...

Are you crazy?!?!?!? You are giving this beautiful house away on your blog? When I first started to read the post I thought you made this for a close friend - the details on your house are stunning and I love all the texture in the metal, the ephemera and that everything opens! If this beauty made it to my house I would definitely treasure it!

drmarty62 said...

OMG Annette
It is stunning. You really should get it published. But if you are giving it away I would love to find a special place for it in my home. You could come and visit it any time you like.

You know I would treasure the house if it wants to come to Texas!!!!

I agree with everyone else who has questioned why you'd give it away but understand why, too.

Thanks Again,

Rob

kelsey said...

Oh Annette!!! This is just too gorgeous and would certainly take pride of place amongst my collection of opa's (other people's art)!!! lol

Considering how much I love etching, but don't think I'll ever get around to doing it, having an etched "anything" from other people would be fabulous. I'm fortunate enough to have a few of Jen Crossley's pieces...lucky me huh!
