Hey guys,

I got a hold of mini LED string lights and managed to light up the truly small size
putz houses made by Barb. Everything is inside a glass display case, so if
you see a "ghost" in the background, it's just me taking pix. The village
is safe from Gus, and that's what matters.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

The stone bridge is indeed amazing. Perhaps it's time to try making one using Paul's stone papers!
