Turkey day 2017 is coming!

Although I'm not ready yet for the turkey, ThimbleWorld is ready for turkey day! 

Are you ready for the Thanksgiving feast?

All the hallmarks of Thanksgiving are in place.
The Indians and pilgrims live together in harmony in ThimbleWorld.  The horses hurry the wagon.  Don't want to be late!

An Indian dances by the fire amid the teepees.

All is well in the pilgrim village.

More harmonious pilgrims and Indians...

Those children aren't crying over spilled milk.  Lots of thimbles here--chickens, turkey, pail with milk, and the churn. New this year is the water well. I made the bucket from a thimble. Note that it looks like water in the bucket.

The pilgrim's barn with pumpkins galore! 

New stone house for the pilgrims this year.  Took a little work, but I made this fit well.

UPDATE!  I really did not like the "antlers" that I made and the modification I made to the front of the house.  So, I got some antlers and made the house front somewhat what it looked like to begin with.  I think I like this much better.  These antlers are better and the wood-look makes them appear actually mounted.

We mustn't forget the forest (thimble) animals...

The Indian children are gathered around their fire.

Little house on the...nook.

Log cabin complete with pilgrims, cow, and mule (thimbles).

Hope you are home for this holiday.

May you find peace and warmth with family and friends.

Halloween '17

It's that wonderful time of year again.  Join me in a walk into the shadow lands of thimbles...

You think it's not so scary in the light?  Hmmm.  I don't know about that...The haunted house is ghostly inside and out.  The graveyard has ghouls at every stone.  Walkers stagger in the back...

The graveyard...

Ghosts and ghouls... 

Ghosts inside and out...

Linus is back there.

The skeleton overlord watching over everyone...and protecting the witches at their cauldron within the tree.

The wizard has conjured a dragon.  But, wait, is that the devil behind those tombstones?

The ghost is reaching for the skeleton.  The women are pointing at the witch flying by, but they should see the shadowy figure behind them....

He's waiting for someone...

And, this is a new addition.  Something that's been kicking around in my head for a couple years.  It's a skull mounted to a half thimble.  The Evil Dead Necronomicon is on the skull with arms rising from the ground (or nowhere).



I decided to do something different in the gazebo in the graveyard.  A black ball on a skull.  Interesting...,to me!

Next stop, Haunted Haven.

So much to see here...

And, beneath.

The gates to Haunted Haven.  It's even scary just to get there.  A UFO is scanning a car before it got in.

The Haunted Train.  Not a ride you want to take.

Evil Dead, anyone?  The Mothman bridge is in that back...

The monster is coming!

 I don't want to say it was aliens...but...it is aliens.  War of the Worlds style.

Oh yes.  Loch Ness...those sheep may be a meal for Nessie later.

Once inside the gates, all houses are haunted.

Ghosts everywhere.

The graveyard.

The Amityville house is even here.

The view backward...

Next stop, the "library."

I'm trying a new setup.  There be dragons (and crashed UFO and aliens)

Wonder what he's conjuring...

Behind it all is a witch in the mouth of the head doing her own spells.

The devil's in the roots and a haunted house hides in the trees.

The mummy has escaped!

Miss Cleo is back again.  This year, she has an entire room.  A (new) witch looks on.

Linus in the pumpkin patch, of course.

The crow and skull "top" off the books.

Moving on around the room, there's more to see.

The creepy house with many movie things. Even a pirate and treasure.  A ghost stands outside her tomb.

The tree...

Coffin, ghosts, cat.  Nothing says Halloween better...

More ghosts haunt this area.

I love Halloween!  It is everywhere!  On the bar...

The table...

The nook...

Outside lights are inside....

Lights on the bar and decorations under...

Like the growler says...and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
