I'm amazed at the variations that can be created out of essentially similar pieces. This looks like a house with a cross and a padre added, and voila, it's a charming church. Clever people, whoever made this.

Linda sent us this—a $1500 putz being offered on ebay—the link won’t last more than 4 more days--they say it's not the one discussed on papated's site

With Memorial Day around the corner, I thought another visit to Papated’s Place was in order---Christmas during WWII—some fab photos—and of course, putz houses; keep scrolling down the page http://www.papatedsplace.com/ChristmasWWII.html

Because this thread is still getting many visits, I am posting an announcement we posted on Ted's site on October 30, 2012:

----------------------------------------------------------------
Announcement, October 30, 2012

After years of acting, performing music, and collecting and writing about his favorite Christmas traditions, "Papa" Ted Althof has succumbed to illness, on October 29, 2012. A Celebration of his life and work is planned, although we have no details yet.

When he realized his was ill, Ted worked with CardboardChristmas.com to establish this archive of his "Putz house" site, which will, hopefully, continue to inform, encourage, and bless other lovers of Christmas tradition for years to come. In the coming weeks, we will be making necessary adjustments (such as changing the contact information), but our primary goal is to keep the information on this site as useful and available as Ted always intended it to be.

In the meantime we appreciate Ted's diligence, his generousity, and his love of Christmas traditions. We also pray for those close to him who showed so much support in his last months.

If you need to contact us before we get everything switched over, please use the Cardboard Christmas contact page.

To paraphrase Dickens, Ted was a man who:

honored Christmas in his heart, and tried to keep it all the year.

I don't think there is a more fitting tribute than to follow his example.

Paul Race, Howard Lamey, Maria Cudequest, Nan Corby, Jack Ahearn, and the rest of the CardboardChristmas.com family.
