rustic antique lantern...

Some of our Christmas tour stuff I never posted...
That one room was so chock full, don't know if I could ever show it all!


Moma's old lantern...even the original glass is still intact...


                                                         I think it would still work fine...

 
rusted perfection...with  Christmas lights glowing in it...


We found an old map of our school district, love  the red  outlines...and I thought...

Let's do a Santa and his sleigh sighting,
                      like they used to do on the weather radar during the news!



,
 of course it looked prettier with the candles lit and goodies in the tin,
   so hard to take pics with everything completely done during an event, everyone is too busy!

 Trains everywhere sometimes...small

 and sometimes large (This Santa was about the size of a two year old)

Suzette wished out-loud, to our friend Susie, that she had a big train and later they turned a corner and this was in the trash...She painted it black and added the stickers...it had tracks with it, too! Our Christmas tour always has fun stories like this...





  
The Victorian Lady Tea Room front window. at Christmas...another wonderland I never showed you...We had it really decked out with wonderful gifts.





anyway...I've been to a water-slide park all day with Jr. High ~~~
So, I thought these snowy scenes looked refreshing..

Great photos and wonderful displays. Stores just don't do their windows like they used to,do they? What a shame.
