A little mushroom house

I used this great free pattern from Crochet Me and made it into a little house.
It's 5 inches high and made with scrap worsted weight yarn and a size 5 mm hook.
The top part has a lid and is hollow so I can store buttons, or paperclips.

I didn't want it to tip over when filled so I put a magnet inside the trunk and I'll probably place it onto a metal base. I'm thinking of making a few of them, all lined up on a shelf or window sill to help keep my work space tidy.
The cute owl that is beside it is needle felted and was made by coltpixy

That mushroom is adorable! I love that it is also a box. Just too cool!

Thank you both....
honestly, I almost pitched him, until I decided to turn it into a little house.

Your mushroom is great! Did you do anything special to make the top part of the mushroom pouf up? I just finished one and the top of mine looks deflated. :)

I think it would be awesome if you made several to store things in.

Thank you La Manosa,
I used the stiffest, scratchiest yarn I could find in my stash. It was terrible crocheting with it,
it was really hard on my fingers but it worked.
