LISTEN TO SOME GREAT AUDIO

While viewing our web site, click on the play "triangle" in the above sound bar

and it will continue playing for all pages. First is the awesome sounds from my

friend Bob Wickline in "What Christmas Really Means" (formerly "Peace in the Valley")

and second is "Village Sounds" from Department 56 to get you in the mood.

(Oh, and don't forget to hit the "play" triangle if you want sound.)

 

 

 

Whether you put a couple of lit houses around your Christmas tree,

create a small village once a year, or have a full-blown metropolis of

over 100 buildings on display all year long, the passions of collecting

shine brightly, from the glowing windows of these unique structures.

 

 

Most people collect something.  Those of us who enjoy "villaging," revel

in the typical joys of collecting, plus, so much more. The satisfaction of

watching others experience our display efforts, or the euphoria in finding

that one special piece you've been searching for, just add to the fun.

 

 

Besides the rush of the collecting endorphins, this endeavor can also

provide more holiday cheer, the comfort of "home," the pride of

tradition, and/or the appreciation of participating in a popular art form.

 

 

Since cavemen first scratched images on their walls, the desire for

creative outlets, and sharing the results, has been a powerful need.

For most of us, the drug-of-choice to fill that need, comes from the

company Department 56 or Lemax. We can appreciate the dozens

of other companies, but the popularity of these two producers, makes

it easier to find other like-minded villagers to share our passion.

 

 

This website is an effort to help promote and share our fun with

villagers, and potential villagers, everywhere. My wife and I hope

you'll share your thoughts, photos, tips, discoveries and more

with us, to keep improving this site, within our limited budget. 

 

Please tell your friends, and check back often. The more visitors

we have, the higher up the search engines our listing gets.

That makes it easier for web surfers to find us.

ENJOY!

                       

Happy Villaging  -  Bill & Kathy
