This is my Putz village for 2018. It is a mix of vintage, refurbished, new and ones that I have made. I have boxes of more houses but alas, not the room to display them.

Perfect atop your antique furniture piece---that church is quite beautiful. I have a friend who puts all houses out by using the "tops of furniture"--her bookcases, armoires, television set--and lots of battery operated wire lights when they are on sale.

Hi Lee, this is a great way to display your village. I love the white house with the attach cardboard tree and santa.

Not only is it a great display, it is MOTORIFIC! The turquoise Ford truck is a nice looking vintage Ideal Motorific toy. They're not all that easy to find. It fits in perfectly.

Merry Christmas everyone and thank you all for your kind words.

DCrowe and Maria, unfortunately the motorific truck is missing its motor... but it is still a cool piece.

Howard, yes I do collect clocks. Other times of the year this sideboard is covered with them. I have loved clocks since I was a kid.
The collection has gotten out of control and I have been trying to pare it down some... Wish me luck!!
