MOREHOUSE -- Fairy tale miniatures are a big hit.

When Melissa Massey, a member of the Parent Teacher Organization for Morehouse Elementary, saw a collection of dioramas depicting scenes from fairy tales on display at the Advance Labor Day Picnic, she immediately thought of an audience that would love to see them.

"They are just the neatest things I've every seen -- each of them play music and light up," Massey said. "I asked if they would be interested in coming to the school."

"It's called 'Fairy Tale Treasures in Miniature,'" said the collection's owner, Patti Jeambey of Advance. "It's 17 miniature displays. My father-in-law built them all. We inherited them about five years ago."
