Hi guys..... here is probably a one of a kind putz village, in micro scale and safe from Gus the cat in a vintage
glass display case. You may recognize many of these mini houses, which were made by my sister Barbara over
the years.... the tallest is under two inches, and the details are fantastic. An awesome little world in itself, made
by an awesome artist. Enjoy!

OKPat...

I totally agree with Les...a real beauty...and a very imaginative use of a vintage display case...that is certainly one way to keep Gus at bay...

Did you put up a traditional village this year?...and did you finish the scene you previewed recently?...(at least i think it was you)...but can't put my finger on the topic right now...

my very best regards...

Howard...

It's a beautiful winter wonderland. A place you would love to run to and immediately make snow angels.

The houses are truly amazing I love how small they are. You would never know they are the micro version of the originals.

A wonderful job by both of you!!

It really is awesome. I’ve seen one house under glass, but a whole village is quite fun.r

At first I just looked at the pics and admired a beautiful village in a great vintage display case. Not until others commented did I read that it is a MINIATURE village! How incredible! I feel for Gus the Cat, but his world is likely a safer place with these tiny treasures protected. Thank you for sharing pics of this winter wonderland.
