She does it with her collection of Department 56's New England Village pieces which she's been collecting since 1987.
Sally Charter graciously agreed to share photos of her magnificent collection with readers of this blog. Thanks, Sally!
She has the perfect place to create the village scenes with built-in shelves along an entire living room wall.
She even changes the scenes yearly and that takes a lot of creativity and imagination.
This year Sally she went online and found deep blue paper studded with stars.
See the sweet little bunnies, below, huddled together at the bottom of the hill near the church?
She added the paper along the backs and sides of the shelves.
This really made the village scenes pop with beauty.
In a village farm scene, there's a lady milking a cow. She's squirting an amazingly thin stream of milk into a kitty's mouth. You can see it right below. Check out the nearby cow who's getting an eyeful!
Sally's collection has bears, beavers, chickens, deer, ducks, dogs, kitties, and even frisky little skunks!
There are so many wonderful scenes to look at, one could easily spend hours perusing the shelves in Sally's lovely home.
The details are absolutely amazing.
On some of the trees, there are tiny red cardinals and even a blue bird.
Here's Sally, to the right!
Thanks again, Sally, for letting us have a peek at your outstanding collection.
Now wasn't that fun to see?
