Dept 56 Village Under the Tree

July 18th, 2011 by Ralphie

Every piece in the set is on display under our Christmas tree. This year I will have the Christmas Story O gauge train set under the tree as well. Since the board is so big, I had to use a few pieces that do not belong to the set as fillers. It takes approx 12 hours to set this display up every year.

Miniature House

January 24th, 2011 by Ralphie

Hello. I work in construction, and build miniature houses as a hobby. I have just finished one of your house. This is scratch built and is 1/24 scale, roughly 14 inches tall. I still have not found the right model car yet, but will keep looking! I hope you enjoy these pictures.

Thank you for your time! Mike

Blue Bowling Ball and Watering Can for our Christmas gifts, 2010

January 11th, 2011 by Ralphie

Our son, Rick and his wife, Donna, gifted us with ideal items from the Christmas Story Movie.

Richard received a Blue Bowling Ball and I received a Water Can!

What funny gifts to give to us “Ralphie’s”……or as I call us all, “The 4 Ralphie-teers”.

I filled our Christmas tree with the famous Leg Lamps, the cupcake decorations printed from my computer.

We’ve enjoyed the Christmas Story Conventions every year and look forward to going again!

House Drawing

January 4th, 2011 by Ralphie

I am an artist, and always looking for new subjects. The visit to the museum was great and it inspired me…I never drew a house before, so this is my first. A far cry from the various versions of the U.S.S. Enterprise I have drawn, but it was fun, and I enjoyed adding the little touches. So…a gift to you. My drawing of Ralphy’s house. Merry Christmas.
