How did we manage to get a church in our back yard, you may ask? Because it's only about 18 inches tall. It's modeled (so to speak) after Alice in Wonderland's church in Disneyland's Storybook Land, which I was fascinated with. I started my version on my own in the early 60s, but by this time I'd gotten an equally model-mad friend involved and we built this. By then I had the to-scale landscaping down, including Irish and Scotch moss for grass-like ground cover. I also had the Seven Dwarfs' cottage plus Toad Hall and Moley's house from Wind in the Willows, likewise patterned after those in the Disneyland ride. Subsequent owners of our place let all my miniature trees grow, and now they're gigantic.
