This post shares the few lighted houses I’ve collected the past two years. They are displayed in the study in front of one of the windows.
Three lighted ceramic houses on a bed of sparkly fleece:
At the top is Fireside Inn, with a nativity scene out front.
Nearby are a snowman and an ice rink where a couple skates.
Below are the Toy Shop and the town hall. There are carollers and other villagers outside.
The bookshelf houses several smaller houses, including a lighted Boarding House.
The skirted table in front of my desk holds a tiny one-foot tree decorated with miniature Hallmark angel ornaments.

This holiday season my strength has been limited, so I have not gone all out as I have other years. Also, I hosted the family Thanksgiving at my home this year. Yes, I was preparing for Thanksgiving and packing up nativities for the exhibit -- all at the same time!

Three of the vintage nativity ornaments:
Under the tree is a vintage creche from Germany
To the right of the tree, barely visible through the sheer curtains is the lighted Star of Bethlehem in the window. Below it is a lighted Holy Family silhouette.
In the dining room another tabletop tree displays musical instrument ornaments.
Oops, I forgot the tree topper! Here it is:
Under the tree is an acrylic nativity set displayed on a mirrored base.
So this is a brief view of some of my 2010 holiday decor. The next post will feature on the lighted houses in my study.
