I have tons of Department 56 Christmas Houses. I decided this year to only put out the truly favorites, in small vignettes. This left at least 20 in the garage. Oops. I need to stop collecting.
This group is on my main desk in the family room. The cute green row house I carried all over San Francisco pregnant. If you are reading this Lauren, yep, pregnant with you.
I like to light them with colored lights. I prefer the glow. This one was given to me by my stepmother when I was still in college. I still remember how they had it hidden lit under the tree with a pillow, and my Yorkie Sandor, pulled off the pillow. It's a favorite.
