I have a very small collection of houses; maybe 20 or so mostly tiny simple ones. I have them on display beginning today through Dec 8th at the Main St Library in Newport News, VA. I have Ted's quote about the magic window included in the display, and a few of his repro windows and doors laying there on the fake snow next to the little houses. I hope some people will get some enjoyment over the next month. Wish they could see a really wonderful putz collection like many of you have!

I can take a photo when I go over there to 'check' on it. I am doing a little craft class there on Dec 8th and the class will make a very simple putz of their own. I took the measurements for a template off one of the tiny houses, and got some celo pieces from papated.
They should be really cute, but most of all, it might turn up some long lost putzs in someone's belongings!

Here are photos of my little display at the Main Street Library in Newport News, VA. I have only collected some small examples and most need repair, but I buy what I can afford, of course! The last one on the right is a modern one by Bethany Lowe that was a gift from someone who knew I was fond of the little houses.

Fun photos. Don't knock the banged-up little houses - they're survivors. :-)
