The Haunted World of Halloween Village Houses (Third Edition)

02-DSC_0175-3

Though village houses are more of Christmas tradition, you’ll find plenty of village houses with a Halloween touch since it’s such a popular holiday. However, unlike its tinsel and cotton snow counterparts, Halloween village houses are usually made to be haunted with ghosts, spiders, jack-o’-lanterns, witches, skeletons, zombies, and more. And plenty of companies are willing to oblige since catering to multiple holidays means more profits. Besides, some people love Halloween so much that they may have their own miniature haunted village in their house. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of spooky Halloween village houses. Enjoy if you dare.

  1. Found a few crows sitting on the roof.

The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas (Fourth Edition)

untitled.png

One of my more popular Halloween posts revolves around pumpkin dioramas. In fact, every year when Halloween comes around, I usually get high stats with these decorations. These usually consist of a pumpkin with a haunted scene inside. Though the pumpkin in question usually comes from a craft store. Since real pumpkins have a lot of craft inside and usually decay in November. Yet, many of these scenes usually consist of haunted houses and grave yards. However, some can be quite creative, too. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of Halloween pumpkin dioramas.

  1. Please, come into this pumpkin house.
1e52071883664c339373d5120786e1fe

This one includes a doorway, windows, and chimney. And it even lights up as if a witch lives there.

2. Best to keep away from this witch’s cauldron.

6d8b135a5b12467ec0157e5048c279b2--halloween-diorama-halloween-displays

Wonder what potions she must be brewing. Though seeing her on her broom, she might be out shopping.

3. Someone’s hand must be rising from the grave.

6f4f9da4096e91d98bea208933388a45

This one uses the pumpkin parts so they won’t go to waste. Still, looks quite terrifying.

4. Death comes to the old haunted cemetery.

9abb7d8fcd0c0e13ee7d814db11c438d

Seems like this one was created with odds and ends. Not sure what to think about the overhead light.

5. Hope these kids have fun trick or treating.

9fe75a05272c6af0c890ca81813644c6

Seems like we got a ghost, scarecrow, and vampire. The jack-o-lanterns also seem quite expressive.

6. Looks like someone’s trapped in the Upside Down.

20f867ac2898a7ac5bd036cff39690cb_stranger-things-fans-go-upside-down-for-halloween-as-season-2-the-upside-down-clipart-strange

Indeed, you’d find a few pumpkin dioramas relating to Stranger Things. Not sure when the next season will premiere.

7. Apparently, you’ll find these ghosts behind bars.

60caace436734a26cc0ac37239622f8f

Though they can leave at any time since they’re ghosts. Still, they look more cute than scary.

8. Cinderella emerges out of her lavish pumpkin carriage.

60cd1efcc2ef9006c8c7e21070c600ca

This one is decked in jewels with a princess crown on top. And I guess the small pumpkins are supposed to be wheels.

9. It’s a starry night at the cemetery tonight.

92cf5cac1f7a7c755ea43b59bf09e27a

Doesn’t seem to be much her other than a skull and a jack-o’-lantern. But I love how it lights up inside.

16. Sometimes you got to add some teeth to increase the scares.

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Fourth Edition)

e572006445f3537ea870af8a28fb3813.jpg

Now that it’s fall, it’s the season for scarecrows. Though I’m not sure if any of these can actually scare crows away from your garden vegetables or crops. Or at least once the birds pick at it and realize it’s just a mere figure of straw and old clothes that doesn’t do much of anything. Yet, people still make them anyway for their fall décor. There are even contests. Most of these consists of a mannequin dressed in old clothes and stuffed with straw. Yet, you’ll find a few made of metal and other materials. Some don’t even have clothes on at all. Of course, some people decide to get creative with these guys. So some of them can be well beyond the farmer image we’re used to. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of delightful scarecrows for the fall.

  1. Birds better watch out for this woman in black.

1fa8920bd639de725fc2efd8bda51771

Each lady has a bouquet of flowers on her lap. Also, love their hats.

2a9c92679ecbe68602407804738dfbc0

Well, he has a bucket for a head. But his trunk mostly consists of a trash can. While his limbs are air pipes.

4. Sometimes you don’t need an old skirt if straw will do.

2f3f22f9df7b4618e370fcfe04cab1f8

The only clothing she has is a shawl full of holes. Yet, you have to like her straw dress and hat.

5. Have room for an old crow?

3a095b9b1469fdcd48083b864af17693

This one has a crow head. While crows are normally sharp, this one doesn’t have a lot of fashion sense.

6. You will be delighted with this happy chef.

3b966f0210fd935a8b73a8d55417a5d0

He’s made out of straw in a chef’s outfit. Yet, you won’t find him in any restaurant kitchen.

7.  “Yer a wizard, Harry.”

3cc3f9c21958fe844ab1daa321815dbc

These are Harry Potter and Hagrid. Yet, the Hagrid one kind of gives the creeps. Since he comes off as a frightening cult leader.

8. This woman has a rather colorful disposition.

3db28bd075be56970b55e0e9294217df

She has a rather loud coat draping her outfit. Yet, I love her hat the best.

Okay, her skirt is a trash can and chicken wire. Yet, her head is a real can.

11. “I call this number, ‘Pumpkin Spice Blues.'”

4d22df7536dffd17f4480256aef1b3f5

Just a scarecrow with a guitar. You’d almost think he’s actually singing.

12. This gardener is all tin cans.

4dba412bd8d14ccba0fabef64c9507bb

Seems more tin man than the Tin Man. And you don’t even need oil for him either. Though he’s prone to rust.

13. All she wants to do is sit and knit.

4df0e91941cdeeab37ea5bc6d8f9608e

Seems like she’s knitting a scarf. Yet, please don’t watch. Since it just seems weird.

14. This bonnie lass always loves tending her garden.

16. Bet you didn’t see this little scarecrow.

8e5f5e565caf7002326987c535cc16a6

18. This pirate captain swings above his buried treasure.

16e51f84b68f79b9b7e3f6bca309df78

And who’s popping out from the treasure chest? However, remember that real pirates don’t have buried treasure since they didn’t expect to live very long.

19. You can surmise that she’s kind of flat.

37adf303ccc629413ac842d387a189a1

Well, she’s made from an ironing board with a pot head. And she’s holding a pot of flowers.

20. The flowers should always match the dress.

49c3e6767aac392837ff076d17860dbd

She has pink flowers on her hat while wearing a white dress with pink prints. I guess the hair is made of straw.

21. A straw hat goes well with a white dress.

She holds a basket of flowers and stands next to a flower wagon. Love her hat.

26. Didn’t think I’d see a cowboy on his own lawn.

631a6f65a57ed49f948157eabf2833ad

Kind of reminds me of Woody from Toy Story for some reason. By the way, the gray cloth things are either guns or hands.

27. Guess he’s a goalie for H.E. Double Hockey Sticks.

2663d25f4b18715ddb34d8ae65c0f2af

He’s supposed to be an undead hockey player. Though he will only skate when hell freezes over.

28. You’d almost think they’re well-dressed country bears.

They’re bear scarecrows in suits. Love their hats. So adorable.

29. With Tinkerbell’s fairy dust, Peter Pan can fly.

22688596_513773892315884_2359036398837368850_n

You’d think they’d have a scarecrow Renaissance Festival with this guy. Yet, he’s not wearing a helmet.

35. How much longer do you think this guy will stay on the fence?

a71cb674fcba82b30cb09364af82ce20

This is a Humpty Dumpty scarecrow. But when he falls, you can’t put him back together again.

36. Hope you don’t bale on this scarecrow.

He’s made out of hay. Has bales for a head and body. Square bales for arms.

37. You’d be board if you don’t view this lady in red.

a5720a89fb88605d7b92de816cf5943d

38. She comes outside in her straw hat and blue raincoat.

a51926990407e6155a6f0e1edbf34c85

And here she’s on the side of the road with yellow flowers in her hands. Still, she’s so lovely.

39. This scarecrow’s sawing logs.

b3fde48f33fc6dc1033573f53881e42d

And he’s using am manual saw. Mostly because you wouldn’t use a chainsaw in a scarecrow display.

40. Even a fall bride should have a sensational gown.

b8ba038a56ca5c344e7afd921ede7725

Wonder if that’s an old wedding dress. Wouldn’t be surprise. But her head is a pumpkin.

41. Hope you enjoy this scarecrow clown.

54. This scarecrow has gone to the next hole.

f959ad946d7e7fe8aae46a4d6708c68b

Not sure how he’s doing. But at least he’s not golfing at a Trump property.

55. Apparently, the news seems to be on the Dark Side.

fd1606ad16a637bbf84819536626b9b6

Had to put a Darth Vade scarecrow at some point. The cape is made out of a trash bag, by the way.

56. With him, there are always springs attached.

The Dollhouse World of Miniatures

libertybaysmall.jpg

When many of us are kids, we may have dollhouses we’d play with from time to time. They may be part of a set or homemade. Yet most will come with a family along with all kinds of furniture and accessories which are sometimes sold separately. However, while dollhouses have primarily been a domain for children, their collection and crafting can also be a hobby for many adults. Think Lester Freamon in The Wire who likes making dollhouse furniture. Nonetheless, today’s dollhouses trace their history back 400 years to the European baby house display cases that showed idealized interiors, which first appeared in the 16th century. These displays mostly consisted of cabinet display cases consisting of individual rooms.  Yet, unlike most dollhouses you’d find at Wal Mart today, these were handmade with architectural details and filled with miniature household items that weren’t made to a uniform scale even within an individual house. These were solely made for adults. And no, the reasons had nothing to do with safety concerns since child labor was rampant back then. But more because these early dollhouses were often status symbols of rich people who could afford them in England, Germany, and the Netherlands. Not to mention, they often cost as much as a house. Smaller houses with more realistic exteriors appeared in Europe during the 18th century. As you’d expect, early dollhouses were all handmade until the Industrial Revolution when they began mass producing toys. Of course, while many of us played with dollhouses as kids, the miniatures I will show on this post are more the work of adult hobbyists. So enjoy for your reading pleasure.

  1. You’d be pressed not to peek into the Palace of Versailles.
Okay, it’s a miniature display. But the detail is quite extraordinary.

2. Perhaps you might want to look in the pantry.

Looks much cleaner than a typical pantry. Yet, contains all the provisions your heat desires.

3. How about we kick back and relax in the music room?

This room even includes a large painting of a woman in a purple dress within a gold frame. Also includes a piano in the corner.

4. Best to put your bookshelves above your bathroom door.

Well, it seems more like an old-fashioned set up. Even includes a spitoon in the corner.

5. Treat yourself to some fine dining.

You’d even see a chandelier on the ceiling. Not sure if it really lights up. Also, love the miniature china.

6. A blue room should always come with considerable taste.

The furniture even matches the wallpaper. Includes painting and a gold chandelier that really lights up.

7. A floral divider always brightens a room.

The dividing wall even contains a bookshelf. Love the windows and chair.

8. Sometimes a small one room trailer is all you need.

This is more of a colorful display you’d find in a Wes Anderson movie. Still, it’s quite quaint.

9. Anyone would want to have this gorgeous kitchen.

This one has pots and pans dangling at the ceiling. Yet, you won’t find a dishwasher, sink, or refrigerator here.

10. This print shop seems quite busy.

You’d almost think Benjamin Franklin would work in such a place. Though there doesn’t seem to be a printing press in sight.

11. Sometimes it helps if the wallpaper matches the floor.

Consists of 2 striped chairs with a painting and chest of drawers between them. The chairs even match the lamps as well.

12. This bakeshop is open for business.

Includes a staircase with open air dining. Tables even have flowers on them.

13. Perhaps a more modern style may suit you.

As you can see, most of these dollhouse styles seem to date before the 1920s. Though this one has zebra rug and antique bust.

14. In a palace, you’ll find plenty of rooms with outrageous extravagance.

I’m sure this room is part of a palace. Includes a chandelier and other lavish decorations.

15. A garden can always bring beauty into a sitting room.

Seems like someone’s having a tea party in here. Yet, the pug has to grab a present.

16. I guess important business is conducted in this palace room.

Apparently, it’s quite gilded from ceiling to floor. Though you’d find fruit on the central table.

17. A white living room doesn’t need to be plain.

This room has a lot of fancy decorations. Guess this was in some lavish mansion.

18. Nobody has been to this laundromat for quite some time.

Seems like this place was built in the 1960s from what I could tell from the furniture. And the machines are all defunct.

19. We all need to relax in a calm room from time to time.

Seems like almost everything in here had to match the china. Though the chaise lounge seems quite comfy.

20. This swanky diner is always a happening place.

Indeed, this place seems straight from the 1950s. And yes, it’s made from a metal box.

21. A sultan would love to have a room like this.

This one has nice pillow seats around the table. Hope the wall is tiled with real mosaic, too.

22. The furniture must always match the wallpaper.

This one even has the curtains match as well. Got to love the pillows though.

23. A lavish throne room is always fit for a king.

This is part of a palace. Indeed, it’s quite lavish. Though I’m not sure about the color.

24. You’ll find all kinds of trinkets in this white room.

I guess the trees are photos for the background. Yet, you have to admire those Greek columns.

25. A Grecian living room should always carry a marble statue.

It’s even lit by a small chandelier. Still, got to love the fireplace.

26. Perhaps you want to lie on a flowery bed.

The floral wallpaper is pretty. Not sure how I feel about the covers.

27. You might prefer to lounge around in a more modern home.

The Folded Paper World of Origami

Origami-crane.jpg

Derived from the Japanese words that mean “folding paper,” the goal of origami is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. Use of cuts, glue, and markings are usually discouraged. The small number of basic origami folds can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. Generally, these designs start with a square paper sheet whose sides may be of different colors, prints, or patterns. Traditional Japanese origami has been practiced since the Edo period has often been less strict about these conventions, sometimes even cutting the paper or using nonsquare shapes to start with. Nonetheless, while the traditional origami is derived from the Edo period with a reference from a 1680 poem, the practice is said be introduced by Buddhist monks in the 6th century. At first, origami was only used in religious ceremonies due to the high price of paper. Though they were also used at weddings and as gifts by the upper classes. Anyway, look into Pinterest and you’ll find plenty of origami designs and types. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of creations from the world of origami.
