This was Amare's first time there. We didn't know what to expect from a 1 3/4 year old. He is definitely into miniatures. Especially the ones with any kind of motor vehicles involved.
It was interesting to see him on the window that is atop the Christmas Village.
He was unsure about walking on it, until Grandpa showed him how it is done. Boys will be boys.
There is also another Christmas display in the wall behind the one on the floor. He loved the railroad handcar that wet back and forth on a two foot track.
This one was in Nutshell News, when it still went by that name.
I couldn't use a flash in the museum so the photo isn't the best. Sorry about that.
It's too bad that this is not a better photo. She has a spider hanging from the edge of her hat and it is about even with her nose. The trench coat has a cape like collar in the shape of bat wings.
The lighting in the fantasy room is a bit dark, but very effective when you are wandering around in there.
I made the sign above her head(before computers with fonts). Pat didn't want the witches to misplace the secret passage...When you pull on a rope on the side, the bookcase lifts up.
The witch holds a bottle of beauty potion in one hand and a mirror in the other....The reflection is of a very pretty woman....At least the witch sees herself as beautiful.
Then when she disappeared, he would say "Poof!" He had that part down pretty good. Hokus-Pocus was a bit harder...
Yes....I do believe that there is a fledgling miniaturist in there somewhere. It may take a couple of years for it to fully develop...I can wait.
See you tomorrow.
