A collection of treasures from Maine needs only the addition of a few sprigs of greenery to take on the spirit of the season.
The long dining table that seats a dozen takes on Christmas shine. Other charming arrangements are everywhere in this lovely house.

Each small house has one or more tiny china figures attached. These little buildings are so rarely found intact now! Barbara collected them years ago. I am showing just a fraction of them. Friend Judy hooked the Santa pillow.
Here is the tree that won my heart. As a toy collector the sweet old baby tender is naturally appealing to me, with it's seat for the baby plus four legs with wheels and a charming little wooden horse head. The surround which holds the child in the tender would never have registered for me as a Christmas tree fence, but Barbara saw this and placed a feather tree in it!. The old scrap ornaments and weighed candle holders with their red candles finish a gorgeous little tree.
A House ready for the grown children and precious grandchildren who will soon fill it. e
