I love the smell of democracy in the morning.  -Erica Acton

For all you Harry Potter fans, be sure to check out the link below.  Mr. Acton is one crazy talented guy, and you can find more of his work at Matchstick Marvels in Gladbrook, Iowa.  They have all the cool stuff in the Brook. 😉

      They really are! Notre Dame is one of my favorites, but Hogwarts and Minas Tirith are both amazing (although sadly, I never got to see Hogwarts in person). Gladbrook is just down the road from where I live and I love to share local news, especially when it’s as cool as this.

        Oh my god, I didn’t even realize there was more to see. I just looked at the first pic and didn’t notice the Next button. The Minas Tirith model is astonishing! It must have been something to see in person.

          It was! The thing is huge. I’ve got a picture somewhere of my husband standing next to it and I think it’s taller than he is. The Crooked House, the second picture, is another one of my favorites. There are just so many great models, and Matchstick Marvels changes the models out occasionally, so you get to see something new. I’ve volunteered there before and it’s awesome because people come from all over to see them.
