fairy castle envy

I made some new fairy castles. I wanted one to put my knit picks interchangeables in, and one to put my steel crochet hooks in… I must have spent more time shaping them to look perfect than I did my last set.  Can you tell which ones are new?  The ones on the right totally look like they are the new shiny rich family in town!  All boasty and proud with curly tops and shine. Then, my poor lil old ones on the left look so jealous as they are looking on!  Especially the mom one. She looks horrified! hahaha
Uh oh. I’m starting to ascribe feelings to my projects.  Is this a warning sign?

    So ADORABLE~ nothing wrong with them having personalities and feelings, especially if they are from tok-land and it’s great mistress.

    dust? what dust? isn’t that just to make things look more homey?

    It’s awesome that you’re ascribing feelings to them. That just makes them more special, like a favorite toy that has its own personality.
