    G`day Folks,

    Mrs. G told me the other day that she would like to share some of her Dolls House pics with you guys in keeping with the spirit of the Christmas competition.

    This is not an entry in the competition but simply the little lady sharing good will and the joy of Christmas season with you folks on the forum.

    Julie has been creating this dolls house in the image of a house she lived in as a child before her family emigrated to Australia in the 1960`s. It has been set up as close as possible to reflect the way the house was furnished and decorated with some artistic license thrown to cover any gaps in memory.

    So every year now it is decorated up for Christmas as the following pics will show.

    Julie`s younger brother in bed on Christmas eve being visited by Santa.

    And then onto Julie`s bedroom with even a fairy godmother to watch over her.

    And down in the living room watching TV.

    The dining room being set up for Christmas dinner.

    There we are folks.......Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Julie.

    Wow! just as I remember as a child in the late 50's early 60's. The tv, the fire place, the decorations, nice one Julie. The only difference, we lived in a bungalow until 1964.

    Cheer's, Pete.

Jimmy wins the Chrissie Pulham print " should we really be here " I am sure there will be some very envious members out there Jimmy. Myself being umongst them. :thumbs: very well done.

    And moving on to the non scale Christmas diorama and this goes to Gormo with his excellent submission of his " Christmas village " with his Christmas Special ........ The polar express . Gormo wins £ 150.00 worth of Townstreet goodies. I'm sure you'll find a place for these excellent products on GCJ.

    A huge " well done " to you both. A further thanks goes out to Ianvolvo for his submission. Many thanks for entering.

    I'll be contacting you both through PM's to organise the posting of you prizes.

    Congratulations goes out to both, if not all of you for taking part in this competition Ian, Gormo and Jimmy, well done. Jimmy, you have produced a stunning entry and Gormo, great to see what can be done in a relatively short time.

    Now only if I didn't plan a trip to the UK I would have taken part, as I had everything here to build a diorama except Santa.... :whatever:

    For our next competition, it's loosely based on 'around the world in 6 days whilst eating Madras curries....' :avatar::avatar:

    Cheers, Gary.
