The Haunted Dolls' House

MINI Friends, today's October story is definitely a bizarre use of our beloved dollhouses. There is a long history of the fascination of the idea of a haunted dolls’ house. In 1927 M.R. James wrote a book “The Haunted Dolls’ House”. It is a true example of Gothic Horror. I read it as a teenager, and it rivaled any horror movie I saw at the time. Richard Hawkins is an American artist, inspired by the early roots of the premise of life beyond a traditional dollhouse. He interpreted that the miniscule houses are not inhabited by ghosts, or possessed dolls; he feels the aspect of the dilapidated, disturbed house is what is haunting. You decide how this art makes you feel.

*We are half way through Halloween MINI month. If you are enjoying my efforts with this series that is providing the spirit of MINI fun, I would appreciate if you would check out my MINI shop, and share my name with your MINI friends! ~judy
