First up, Howard Lamey’s train station with terrace putz, an oldie but goodie (www.littleglitterhouses.com) – one of his largest pieces; the terrace is 19 1/2 inches wide!
That's followed by a great French postcard of Kate Winslet from the "Titanic" series, see more courtesy of our friends at European Film Star Postcards here.
She's followed by an oldie but goodie and one of the best German tired village pieces we have seen in a long time (they were meant to be lit BY REAL CANDLES BY THE WAY!) and we just love the newly discovered element of a "pyramid wheel" in the photo. It comes to you courtesy of Mark P, see more photos from the 2016 Golden Glow of Christmas Part Convention here.
Thanks Mark for all you do to record and preserve! Photo sliced into close-ups as well. Again, click on the photos and links.
When it comes to putz villages—and train layouts—some of us are all about keeping everything to scale.
And some of us don’t care. Either way, if you haven’t checked out the Lemax line of village accessories at The Village Peddler, you really should: click here or http://www.lemaxcollection.com/home.aspx
A resident who is building a miniature Tiki "putz" village for her upcoming Summer Tiki Party, was looking for little hula dancers.
Cara found these cupcake toppers--don't know long the link will last at ETSY. Click here.
