Halloween in Miniature 12: Happy Halloween!

Welcome to the wrap-up party for The 12 Days of Halloween in Miniature (Link will take you to day 1).

I hope you had fun and enjoyed yourself, I know I did!

While the guests are helping clean up in the other room, let's go see what some of our neighbors are up to.

Miniaturist Patricia Roberson of Phoenix describes herself as a real Halloween fan and has made literally dozens of Halloween-based scenes in all scales. See some of her work below.

Shh... walk softly. See that shadow? You don't want to disturb whoever lives here.... Quick. Let's go to another house.

Oops! Oh, dear. Guess we stopped by at the wrong time. Looks like Helga is taking a bath. (Cat Wingler witch and Charles Claudon cats.)

Hurry, one more stop to make.

Ah, now that is more like it. Zelda says we should stay for tea, but we really need to get back for the Trick or Treaters. Mustn't disappoint the kiddies! (This is a half-scale scene with a Cat Wingler witch and Charles Claudon cats.)

Back outside now. Let's greet some of the Trick or Treaters! The decorations and little visitors are by Canadian miniaturist Doreen Playter.

Doreen, who's been making miniatures for four years, says she enjoys decorating her dollhouse for the holidays each season. She tries to change it every year, too, "just like a real house," she says.

While she says she doesn't sew, she is planning to add to the costumes, though she did a great job of dressing her little trick or treaters already, didn't she? (Click slideshow below. Wait for it to load.)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit!
