We have friends who really get into the holiday spirit. They spend months putting up their collection in displays. Then they host an open house. Just inside the front door is an antique telephone switchboard. Across from the switchboard, they set up a miniature village.

To the left of the village, you enter the parlor. They set up a buffet in there.

Back to the entry hall, you see the cabinet which was the original collection. It sits on the floor, with items displayed above it.

Wow, Frederick, this display is amazing! Must be fun to put all these decorations UP, but exhausting to take down & put away for next season. Have you suggested a 'human interest' interview with any San Diego media? And yep, we second the favorite ornament - cute! Happiest of holidays to all - L 'n D

They get asked that a lot. Dan says that in the year they hold the open house (every SECOND or THIRD year) he begins by pulling the boxes out of storage in June. Everything is organized and cataloged, and displays are put in groupings according to theme. He works on one room at a time, one wall at a time. As the decorations go up, some of their furniture goes into storage to make room.

He also prints his own Christmas Cards/Invitations using original artwork he has made himself.
(Please excuse the out-of-focus photo of this year's card)

He hopes to get everything put away by Memorial Day.

Yes, they have been covered in the past. This was the 13th time they held the open house over the last 30 years.
