New pictures

Ok, finally got around to taking more shots of the decorations, plus have some pics of our redone front livingroom.



Max's portrait in the background


Steven's proud of his village.


Had to have some Christmas Bears SOMEwhere....


With little space to put out our entire village, we put the rest above the kitchen cabinets.


The Fireplace. That mirror is Steven's grandmothers from the mid 1800's.


Detail from Fireplace:


Decided to give a try at creating our own Mickey Icon wreath. The map in the background is our latest find on Ebay. Disneyland park map from 1961. Finally got it back from the framers. It's huge!


Our new front livingroom.

Oh my gosh! What a beautiful home!

PULEEZE don't let my wife see your Christmas village, ok? PLEASE???

Seriously, you have done an incredible job, not only with the Christmas decorations but with your home overall. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Thanks so much honey. Our Christmas village has gotten out of hand. We didn't even put all of them out. We have about 40 houses. Steven's dream is to be able to create a lifelike village, with a train, water features, people, cars, roads, mountains.....he's gets a little obsessive about things and I have to reel him back in. I swear next year, he's converting our office/art room into the "Village Room". I swear........

Thanks! We worry some times that we don't have a decorating gene. We have the Christmas decorating gene, but I struggle with the house.

Thank you! I actually worked at Dillards for a few years during the holidays doing decorating and also worked for a design company here in Dallas for 4 years decorating homes for the holidays. Have done some contract xmas decorating some, but it's so hard to get it done for myself, let alone others.

And that map got SO much attention at the frame/craft store. Everyone was coming up and checking it out. We got lucky. The 1955-1959 maps were going for $250 and up and the 1960's going for $150. I somehow found someone who didnt' know what they had and sold it on ebay to me for $20.

I should feel guilty.......

My mother's village has gotten way out of hand. One year my brother and I each got her a piece for it. After Christmas she sent out a "Cease and Desist " (spelling?) order on all new building. It was pretty funny and she made it look like an official government document.

Aha, Mr. Z! The truth comes out! You are a PRO at decorating!

Don't feel guilty. The person sold it for what they wanted.

My wife would love that village. She's got just a few pieces and hasn't yet put them out. Maybe I'll get her to do it this year. She's collecting Studio 56's Dicken's series. Her favorite so far is Marley's Ghost (house).

Zeit, looking at all of your Christmas decorations makes me feel like a bad gay. We put up a tree, our stockings, a wreath, and that's pretty much it.

Um, Rob? How do you put up a "stalking"?

We just have stockings. But you know, we're straight...

Mr. and Mr. Z, I am SUPER sad we will miss the party! The house is beyond beautiful!
