Halloween in the House

Halloween arrives on the kitchen table.
A mysterious trunk, the requisite pumpkin, and a rocking horse from the attic. (The shelf)
Worry dolls and spell ingredients. Perfect for today.
"Ooh, aah what's in here?!"
Adventurous Racer rides the horse. She wanted a hat with a skull on and this is my attempt. It looks more like Frankenstein's monster to me but she likes it. 
The others wanted a variety of Halloweenish things. The one I like the best is the crocodile hat which Hope is wearing. Madeline is the witch, AMF is the pumpkin. (She is called AMF because she arrived in the box of an Adjustable Milk Frother and the name has stuck.) Lorna is the ghost and Minnie Sutherland is the cat/bat, we can't decide which. Both are suitable. 
The trunk is quite roomy. I have had it for years. It is an old doll's trunk which is a good thing for young dolls too. 
Hope is doing her best to look scary here as she invites you to join their tiny party. There will be mushroom tea and acorn and pumpkin soup later. 
All apart from Racer held onto their worry dolls. She wasn't in need of one as she wasn't worried about riding the horse. Halloween can be a little worrying if too frightening a film is put on, or the trick or treaters are dressed like clowns. We just had the giant cat Eddie to watch out for, and he had gone home by this time.
We decided to turn the lights off and get out the tiny lights, just for a bit of Halloween atmosphere.

And here is the very brightly lit line up, to show off the hats and ghost a bit better! It looks like a police line up but I promise it isn't!

the line up- I swear , officer, it was the one in the hat, I would recognize her anywhere.

The hats are wonderful, the one that covers the entire girl looks mighty cozy- glowy, like a Christmas angel. I do agree, though, the alligator hat is first prize winner.
Love the little doll case, and the horse riding skills!

You have made the best Doll Halloween!!!
I had guessed the white fluffy costume was snow, but of course--it is a ghost--glowing ectoplasm! Tooooooo delightful.
Each one is perfect in its own way, but that's my favorite.

Racer always cheers me on---she doesn't even need a worry doll, of course not--the worry (Will there be a crash? Will things or doll bones be broken?)is never on HER part...

Dolls are lucky you would never follow the ridiculous advice of the bumper sticker I saw that said, "Get Rid of Everything".
If one did that, how could dolls play dress up adventures?

They all look wonderfully cosy in their hats and socks, my girls have shorts and bare feet now. I love all the pictures and decorations, the ones with the tiny lights have so much atmosphere. The tea party looks quite enchanting.
