Where I work now we have a damn ice cream 'dipper', one of those freezers that hold 16 tubs of the shit for scooping. Last Christmas it was used to hold boxes of Coke promo glasses to give out......lovely addition to the decor.

Another employee and I decided we really needed to decorate the store this year. Last years 5 ft tree with it's two sets of lights, stuffed into a dark corner just didn't cut it.

So I took about half of my village in and converted the dipper into a Christmas scene. It sure cut back on what I had for home, but now that we have an electric fireplace taking up the wall I used to set most of it on it worked out well. And the customers love it. I even covered the name over the train station with the name of our Farm Market......got a few chuckles ;)








My downsized village .........






I think I have a much fun setting this up as I do getting gifts. :lol:

Holy damn... I thought my mom had a lot..

They are gorgeous! I also have just as much fun setting up for Christmas as I do sitting with family and getting gifts. I don't like the tear down though.

Awww don't wait till the kids are older........most of that stuff was picked up at Dollar stores, Zeller's, a few things on ebay and even yardsales. LOVE it when Zeller's puts theirs on sale.......usually before Christmas and then clears it all out afterwards (hubby doesn't though :lol: ) None of it is irreplaceable and the kids would have a great time helping out.

If hubby had his way, he'd have me down to just the top of the cedar chest. Prior years was this 8 ft long one, my curio cabinet AND the cedar chest.

Those are really nice set ups.

I have a small set that I put up on time, and one of the darn cats kicked one the porcelain people off the set and broke him. Sad

Very beautiful Rottn. I love those displays. I gave Izzy a couple of sets, but nowhere near what you have and not nearly as lovely. I love to decorate for the holiday. It brings me much happiness, much more than the gifts or anything else.

Thank you for sharing and also for sharing a part of yourself which brought others happiness!
That to me is what Christmas is all about.

Merry Christmas to you RottnMom!!
