I realized this morning that it’s going to take more than one post to show the villages that Rob sets up for Christmas.
I’m going to start with his favorite, Retroville. This was a set, sold at JoAnn’s for just one year and he bought several pieces. I went back and bought the rest, except for one piece that my local store didn’t have. And, we’ve added accessories over time because those were available for several years.
Oh, look, Dr Who has transported us in his TARDIS
to a quaint little 1950’s era village
complete with shops and modern conveniences.
diners and a TV shop
and bustling with wintry activity
This little Christmas tree lot wasn’t part of the set. Rob painted it himself one year. I wish he’d do more of these. We still see them once in a while. I think someone at his office gave him this one and he did a very nice job with it.
Sleepy little houses with tiny lights that light up on the outside, much like the blue lights Rob has outlined our house in.
Okay, so that’s today’s visit to Retroville. Rob really enjoys his villages and all the people are out doing things. He can tell you what they’re up to if you ask.
