Please use this forum for photos of your putz villages - some of you don't make your own houses, but you still display a lot of artistry when you combine and arrange them. And the rest of us would love to see your work. Again, it works best if you resize your photos to 800px wide or less before you upload them - Paul

Though I have moved a few putz village photos from other places, no new putz village photos have shown up here yet, so we'll post a link to some.

Maria Cudequest's putz village photos that she posted earlier are on another topic in this forum: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=264

There are more photos on her blog:

Antoinette Stockenberg's putz village photos are on her web page. Click the 2012 link.

This is my North Pole vignette, which gives me a chance to feature the German flats in a small setting.
Those putz houses are miniature copies of HOM's made by my sister Barbara.... they are accurate in every
detail, and the biggest one is only two inches high. I can't say enough about how awesome they are!

Here's my annual putz village in the living room fireplace .... and no matter that I never had a fire in this fireplace, had the flue cleaned twice, then blocked it with cardboard, soot keeps coming down onto the houses! Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! But the location is convenient, which is probably what they thought in Pompei, and Santa and his sleigh hang bravely off the old crane.

My sister Barbara got me interested in this hobby about 6 years ago, and it's been huge fun tracking down
the pieces and re-arranging them each year. Lighting was always a nightmare until I made a stepped platform of peg board, learned how to wire up low voltage light bulbs,and ran the wire down through the holes, under the peg board onto a transformer. Let there be light!

My latest find was a "super lakkie", placed in the first row to the left of center.... a real wowser, with
a craftsman style window on the left sidewall... Despite the lack of snow on it, it's my current fave.

I love your village and the tiered effect is great; love the fence too.

here's another one of my villages; the White feather tree Castle putz; alas I can't get the silhouette of the knight in the window of the large castle to photograph! It was created for me by Howard Lamey; the smaller castle is one of his as well. He even made the little soldiers. The coach and horses are from the 40's; 90% of the ornaments were made by me from vintage, antique and repro Dresden scraps and other bits and pieces

Pat, both of your displays are GRAND....The NORTH POLE scene is charming and better yet,
made by Barb. If I had made them I would have kept them! Outstanding....
