My motto is that if it doesn't move, put lights on it. If it does move, sneak up behind it and put lights on it anyways.

The Santa holding his belly is made by Arvey Corp, he's styrofoam, about 2 feet tall. Yes, that's an Artistic Latex angel caroler. He's in rough shape, but he's still a cutie. Thank you for the complements on my nativity. Mary, Joseph, and the 2 taller wisemen are repaints!

Thanks for the nice words! Yes, blowmoldohio, the fireplace is one of my favorites, especially since we don't have a real fireplace. Thanks for asking about the Lionel train, Jim. My son loves to show off HIS train! Last Christmas, his Pappy (my dad), built him a special table for the family room so the train could be run all year long, instead of being stored up in the attic. The table also displays the Plasticville houses my parents put around the tree when I was a kid. Right now, the train is running around our Christmas tree.

I don't know where to begin! I absolutely LOVE how you have Santa flying! That is just perfect! Your Poloron Nativity is just pristine! And I love the angels with it and all of your baby Beco kids. And then your inside! I love your older pieces, wish my Poloron deer had their bottom hooves. And your village. WOW And nothing says Christmas more than a Lionel train around circling Plasticville! Just gorgeous!

Thank you for the kind words, Tom. Your opinion means a lot to me! Merry Christmas!

Yep, gotta love the Lionel trains. My ancestors (for at least the past 200 years) have all been located in southeast PA, so we had to have a couple of Pennsylvania RR cars! Was at Barnes and Noble last night, and they had a Lionel Christmas train that was really cool, but even at half price, I just couldn't swing $125. It would look really amazing under the tree, though!

Thank you! The Poloron choir girl is a repaint (and I did some repair work to her neck and right arm). Also my nativity (Poloron/Holiday Innovations) is repainted. I completely stripped and repainted Mary, Joseph, Jesus, and the 2 taller wisemen! :)
