Thank you everyone. I hope to get more pictures online soon. In the meantime, I will put up the rest of my kitchen putz and vintage "house" cardboard music boxes made in Japan shortly.

p.s. Tom my back has issues too. This year I went quite multi-level to avoid bending so much--and took my time....

p.p.s. For those who know...I usually put up a vintage fiber-opticy type made in Japan halo tree topper but again--in the when life gives you lemons department--it suddenly stopped working. Fortunately I had another topper--a star--that I picked up in a tag sale some years ago for a song....and actually I like it better...still it was quite an episode getting the old one off and the new one on---AFTER the village was all set up--I did it with a pole, duct tape and a hook I made form a hanger! LOL! Here's the old topper that failed

Maria,

Your display is so wonderful. It is a delight to see all the photos, but I can hardly imagine all the work that went into making the display.

Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Lucy
