I am happy to post the annual Christmas display from Linda's aunt; there are three more photos and I will get them online soon.

Linda says: "Here are Auntie's pix. She will be 98 in March and keeps telling me that "This is the last year I'll do this". As always the only thing I help her with is the lighting. She does all the rest herself. As you can see, she covers every flat surface in her room as well as the bathroom. These are the same pieces she always uses(except for the some of the houses). She just puts them together in different ways. This year there's a farm in one village and you'll notice that the usual wedding picture scene has been replaced with trees and a pop-up house."

SEE THE PHOTOS BELOW, OVER TWO POSTS. You can see her 2012 display here http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/20 ... -from.html

I love the farm scene with the printie. It goes together in a way you wouldn't expect.
