A to Z Challenge - H


PART 1 - JANE AUSTEN ALPHABET-MISS HARRIET SMITH

Austen Alphabet08
One of my least favorite Austen characters and it looks like I got a bit lazy with stitching her dress...that crookedness might drive me nuts if I stare at it too long!

PART 2 - MY DISNEY COLLECTION-HAUNTED MANSION

Like Figment, I don't have a lot of Haunted Mansion stuff because of their cost (highly collectible items and usually issued as limited editions), but I have a few pieces crammed together (I really need more shelf space for them):
Disney H-01
Disney H-02
And like my ear hats, I'm most proud of my Disneyland and Disney World versions of the hearses...one of the few things I can't bring myself to remove from their boxes. But then there is also my favorite Haunted Mansion collectible, a relatively recent acquisition:
Disney H-03
Of course Haunted Mansion isn't the only ride-themed stuff I collect, I also have some Pirates of the Caribbean stuff (the ride, not the movie), but it's not really enough to show.

I don't like Harriet either! We have very similar Austen tastes.
Is it really bad to admit I don't know what Haunted Mansion is?

Another great collection Keiley and one of my favorite rides.

I never thought I'd ever hear myself saying this, but I think the hearses are great! Another enjoyable collection.

Seeing all your stitched letters so far are making me feel guilty for the piece its taken me 3 years to get 1/3 of the way done! Guess I better get busy.
I'm not seeing a crooked dress, either!
And the hearses are awesome.

Love the Jane Austen alphabet cross stitching.

I think this would be my favourite part of your whole collection.
My friend's band used to have a hearse, bit of a cliche but still impressive.
My Grandad learned to drive in one but he did at least work for an undertaker! He used to pick my Nana up in it sometimes. But she wasn't allowed in the back part!
