The bridge was a gift from a friend; the "brownstone" is a trashbashed Playskool piece---the houses are by Howard Lamey--assorted vintage and antique ornaments and pieces--the brown car is a trashbashed plastic bank

A wonderful collection, I love the tree and what a neat way to hang the bead garland :)

Oh, I remember that Playschool house! It was a Sesame Street piece...my son had it. Never thought of reworking stuff like that.

A lovely layout. I envy folks who don’t have inquisitive cats like mine who limit my village displays to the top shelf of a bookcase! :D

No it's an old one; I do have a white one--smaller--but it needed too many repairs this year---next year for sure....
