 Id. no:  WALES - 0028
This Blog is just to wish all my Blog friends and followers (from twenty different countries) a very Happy Hallowe'en.

I made this little Hallowe'en roombox in 1998.  At the time, I was Chairman of a Dollshouse Club and we used to make a seasonal monthly miniature, so I made this setting for Hallowe'en.
I really enjoyed making it.  I made and dressed the doll (witch) and called her Maggie Moon.  Her body is padded fabric over pipecleaners.  I dressed her using re-cycled fabrics.  Her head, hands and boots are made of Fimo modelling clay and her features are painted. 
The front of her little "house" is made from weathered bamboo canes out of the garden and the tree is a twig, also out of the garden.  The lights in the roof  represent stars.  They are covered over with wire mesh which is used for repairing the bodywork of cars.  I also made the cat with Fimo.
Just click on the picture to make it bigger. 
You can see more of my dioramas and roomboxes on the website.  Carole.

ALICE from the United States has sent me this lovely little Hallowe'en story which I am sure you will enjoy reading.
(Thank you Alice):
What a delightful creation! We are really celebrating Halloween here, and fortunately the weather appears to stay mild. I grew up in Michigan and at this time of year, Halloween could be really chilly, if not cold. My 3 great-grandkids in town (San Antonio, Texas) are anticipating dressing up and trick-or-treating. Nowadays it is just treating, but when I was growing up, the tricks were really accomplished. Soaping windows, rattling on doors and hiding, turning over outhouses (really - my husband remembers that).

Anyway, I got out my little cornhusk Halloween witches and other decorations. Actually, I have collected small witch dolls for years on our travels and have them on and hanging from a shelf. We did bed-and-breakfast at one time, and a family stayed with with two young boys in the bedroom with the witches. We learned the next morning that the older boy had scared his little brother by telling him the witches would come alive during the night and get him! Happy Halloween! Alice
