Hallow Manor by S. Mignoli

Welcome to a tour of Hallow Manor by my favorite Halloween Dollhouse Artist S. Mignoli. The house has a loft overlooking the living room, with a skeleton in a casket and a working flickering tea light. The kitchen features the artist's hand-sculpted miniature witch tea service and "Thing," the hand in the box. The Ghost Doll is a Re-Dead, not to be confused with Re-Born, as the artist likes to point out! My favorite was the weathered mural wallpaper and the cat hanging from the tree branch greeting the trick-or-treaters.

This Victorian dollhouse built in 1885 was designed after (what is now) the YWCA in the Germantown Section of Philadelphia. The dollhouse was refurbished almost 30 years ago with much attention to detail. It recently sold for a little over $700 on eBay.

Harry Potter Castle by Mary Ann Stage

As a continuation of her Harry Potter project, artist Mary Ann Stage has completed her second HP Castle. I have been a fan of Ms. Stage since I featured her Hogwarts Castle last July. The new castle depicts some of the rooms that were not featured in the first castle: for example, the dining hall, the requirement room, the chess game room, Snape's classroom and Dumbledore's room to name a few.

Fairy House ~ Julie McLaughlin

"This enchanting One Of A Kind fairy home is made from SOLID WOOD with a textural, 4 step paint and plastered exterior with natural BARK siding and twisty GRAPEVINE trim. A HAND-CARVED TREE SPIRIT embellishes the front suggesting the magic within. Window and door overhangs are made with CORK BARK and FUNGI. The wooden beam doors have antique CARVED white rosette doorknobs from old jewelry findings. The rounded windows are carved wood in a HONEYCOMB pattern. I shingled the roof with cedar shakes in a topsy-turvey pattern for whimsy, with several coats of stain and paint to acquire an aged look. ORB-topped spires sprout from each roof. Fantasy floral silk PASSION FLOWER vines climb the roof tops and determined my color choices for furnishings and decor. This home is intricately detailed on all four sides with many touches to be discovered!

"The 3 ROOM interior has plastered walls, faux stone floors and twig beam ceilings. All furniture is moveable with the exception of SHELVES, LIGHT FIXTURES, MINIS attached to furniture and MICRO HAND-PAINTED PICTURES.

"The decor is very dreamy and feminine in tones of white and green, with a few sparkly rhinestones and vintage laces, yet remains rustic, based on what a fairy could utilize in nature. Tiny LIGHT FIXTURES add a touch of TWINKLING AMBER LIGHT to several areas, enhancing the fantasy feeling........."

Spellweaver Witch's Shop by Lisa Kline

For all Halloween mini-lovers out there, I present the Spellweaver Witch's Shop by artist Lisa Kline. My most favorite thing among many is the little sign that hangs outside, advertising the List of Services ranging from fixing fairy wings to hex removal! So, in the words of the artist herself, a tour of the Spellweaver Witch's Shop...

Well known throughout the Enchanted Woods "Spellweavers" is for sale! Just in time for the Halloween Season!!

The shop was established in 1857 and has been a favorite source of supplies and books for Witches, Wizards, Sorcerers and Village healers. The shop will come with all you see here. Plenty of room to add much more , but this will certainly get you started. The current Witch (taking a rest upstairs after a hard day over the Cauldron) comes along with the shop.

Downstairs there is a shop counter with cash register. Sign on counter gives the payment accepted. "All major cards accepted, Also Cash, Pearls, Gold, Magic Beans, Goats and Toads."

Next we have a Bookcase filled with spellbooks and charts, and a tub of Very hard to gather "Vulture Eggs", also a barrel of Mugwort sold in bulk.

A shelf filled with Alter Cloth fabric, Crystal balls and Skulls. (Every work-bench needs at least one skull).

In the center of the shop is a Reading Table complete with Crystal Ball and tarot Cards. Readings are usually made around Midnight.

A lovely corner unit holds Spell charts, Witch-fired Spell scrolls, Herbs and potions. Under the window is a ceramic stand Holding Besoms. They have been fully charged under a full moon and are a very economical form of travel, "Spell-Powered." A little shop bell will let you know if anyone comes in the shop, Invisible or slithering under the door.

Oh Looks like there are a few little guys on the Porch now waiting for the shop to open. I imagine they are looking for a Hex-Breaking spell.

Upstairs we have a bed, dresser and Gargoyle torch.

There is a sign on the side that reads "Services Listed---- Fairy-wings Fixed, Wands Polished, Broom Cleaning, Forest Animal Care, Hex Removal, Elves Made Visible, Trolls transformed.
