Hello All!

I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season so far. Love seeing all of your putz displays.

I am posting last year's putz Villages because I recently moved into a small apartment and haven't had the time or the space to set anything up. If I do get around to setting something up I will post pictures!

The first set of pictures is from my living room putz and the smaller village is my kitchen putz.

Hi Leben,

What a wonderful collection of houses. Each one is a treasure! I see you are also a collector of the flatties. I never seem to have enough :)

I am so happy you posted your pictures and I do hope you will be able to set up a village this year.

Thank you for sharing Leben. I noticed that you have a house in a series that I call "Snips & Snails and Sugar & Spice. It took me a while to name this category of houses. The thing that sets this group of houses apart from the rest is that they always have a blue or blue gray house and their roofs are always pink or bright fuchsia. The Blue and Pink reminded me that little girls are denoted by the color pink whereas boys are noted in blue. With that in mind I recalled the nursery rhyme; “Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails, That's what little boys are made of. Sugar and spice and all things nice, That's what little girls are made of. Hence the name. Here is the picture of the one that you have and I don't (Love it) and the others are to demonstrate this group of houses. I'll be keeping my eyes open so that I might be able to add this one to the collection.
