Happy Halloween everyone! It’s a cloudy, chilly day in Plano, Texas today, in keeping with the grim mood of Halloween. Here with me today are my favorite dolls to wish you all a “Happy Trick or Treating!”

The Thai Classical Dance-Drama dolls are inspired by characters in a Khon (Masked Play) performance which is an episode in the Ramakien, based on the Ramayana of Valmiki. The chief characters are Rama, the hero; Sida, the heroine; Thosaganth, the demon king; and Hanuman, the white monkey general.
The Indonesian word ‘wayang’ is derived from a word meaning ‘shadow’ or ‘ghost’. These intricately cut and perforated shadow puppets are made from buffalo hide. Wayang Kulit shadow puppets are prevalent in Java and Bali, are without a doubt the best known of the Indonesian wayang.

I bought these two kitchen sets for my new dollhouse, but I can’t choose one over the other. Both sets are so adorable! I think the mahogany and cream kitchen goes well with the rest of the furniture, but the light oak kitchen has a vintage look about it.
What do you think? Please help me decide!
As I professed before, I love mahogany furniture! This is my dining room set inside my new dollhouse. My most treasured piece is the grand china cabinet with its latticed oriental doors and intricate woodwork! My collection of dollhouse furniture is growing very slowly, but then again, only the best will do for me!
