Christmas Countdown Day 8
Scrooge in Miniature
Whilst searching for some suitable images for my previous post about A Christmas Carol, I came across these delightful little miniature scenes by Anne Thomas, from Cumbria, which are currently being displayed at the Dolls' House Emporium's shop at Houghton Hall Garden Centre in Carlisle. I wish I was closer so I could see them close up, but will have to make do with the pictures!
The scenes show various events within the book, the picture above is when Marley's ghost, complete with chains and safe boxes, appears before Scrooge to warn him of his fate!
This scene shows the Ghost of Christmas Past, the first of the three spirits to visit Scrooge, notice the light on the spirit's head, a nice little detail from the story.
And this scene is, of course, the spooky Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, showing Scrooge his lonely tombstone.
If you are lucky enough to live near Carlisle, do drop in and see this exhibition at Houghton Hall!
