My Uptown Christmas Village under the tree. The houses are all semi-giants of the "mansion" variety hence the Uptown. They go so well with the cathedral. Four of them are Pete's and the rest are from my collection. Thanks to Howard for making the cathedral and thanks to Pete for taking the pix.

Thank you so much for posting them.

How nice to see the blue trees. I love it when someone adds their own personality or style to their collection.

Nan, I'm not sure the trees are blue. I think there's a color shift due to the low lighting, plus me resizing the photos. Sure is pretty, though. :-)

Barb, Would love to come over!! I'll bring Pete along as four of his houses are in the village...LOL. It does make collecting, restoration, village building so much more fun when you can get together in person and share. I'm sure Tom and Dianne can attest to that after their meeting. In the meantime, emails will have to do.
