Today I went on a listing appointment and found this miniature Village. These homeowners are in the process of getting their home, of 42 years, ready to go on the market. It will take a bit of time to decide what to do with everything, divide it up among the family and what to take with them. One of the things that will not be moving is the room below full of eye candy. Not sure if I will get the listing..they are interviewing another agent or two.
But I had a fun afternoon in this former bedroom which now houses this complete train garden in a miniature village setting. It is a wonderful collection by a couple who have worked on this in partnership. He built the suspended railroad bridges and she hand painted all the buildings. There are many stories that go with this amazing collection.
Much of the exhibit is motorized. Take a close look at the bumper cars in the picture above. They were all moving!
The same for the ride above..notice that the umbrellas are down near the ground and then again up top.
The buildings were all painted by hand. Lots of eye candy in this collection.
The swings on the ride above are moving. We had to stop the prop on the hot air balloon above to see it...and yes those teacups are going round and round.
Same for the Ferris wheels above.
And what village can be complete without a First National Bank?
When I get the listing, I will show you the house but for now... the miniature village will be my treat for tonight.
