In Colonial Williamsburg, VA there is a folk art museum which has a large exhibit of weather vanes.
The weather vanes have miniatures of a variety of subjects. Some of the miniatures are so big I imagine they would be part of a very large weather vane.
The next miniature is from the museum in Wilmington, NC at the USS NC Memorial Battleship.
The last miniature is located in the NC Botanical Garden at Chapel Hill, NC.
The details that went into this miniature house amaze me, including a tree and water pump.

These are all great, but I am partial to miniature ships. My sister actually collects them. Happy weekend, and photo hunting! I'm back playing this week too :)
All are great. the miniature house is amazing. happy weekend.
Beautiful, Carver. I love the miniature house! Enjoy your weekend.
We're on the same wavelength with folk art this week! I love that ship and the house is amazing! Hope you have a great weekend.
It always amazes me how miniatures are made, some people surely have more patience than I
I know that people collect miniatures. They are so delightful.
Love the miniature boat.
Great replicas in miniatures! They are as good as the real thing. Interesting subjects for photohunting.

I would love to visit this museum, there are lovely miniatures, I specially like the two first pictures, with those cool shadows!

Oh I love that tiny house! But wonderful photos as always. Happy weekend Carver.
wow, I love weathervanes. Excellent post and great take on this week's theme.
Those are great examples for the theme...well done!
Very nice selection, Carver. And d'oh -- I have a really nice photo of a weathervane that I've been waiting for the right opportunity to put up. Seems like I did have it in the form of this week's Photo Hunt -- but I plum forgot about it and went for something else instead!

Wow - look at the deatil to that work. I am astounded that anyone has the patience to do it.

There's something about miniatures of any sort that appeals to me greatly but the little house is the winner in this case. I'm very fond of weather vanes too, in their own right.
This is a very interesting collection. I think i like the ships too...
Interesting selection of miniatures. I think those weather vanes are wonderful.
These are great choices Carver, especially ship :)
And yes, the house looks lovely :)
I love the little house! The details are darling :) The battleship looks great too!
I love the weather vanes. They bring back memories of the farm.
Wow,such fine detail on all of them.
Yes I agree - all are wonderful. I love the detail on the ship. It must take patience to do these items in small detail.
Cool miniature models!

i love this little wirey tree!
your blog was a great way to spend a saturday morning -- how much i miss the colors o fall!
your house reminds me of a little house in a park. I must go back and add it. thanks,
Wow, look at the detail on the roots of that tree with the little house. These are all gorgeous. I have seen those miniatures and all the doll houses in Williamsburg. Amazing detail! Mine is up here.
Love them all. The miniature house is my favorite.
