MY LILLIPUT LANE COLLECTION

Some people have Dept. 56 collection. I have a Lilliput Lane Collection.

It all started when I saw that little house in a Carroll Reed catalogue years ago. Usually, the catalogue only advertised fine quality clothes but in one of their catalogues, I noticed a Lilliput Lane house. I fell in love with the English cottage and that started my Lilliput Lane collecting. I am an anglophile and I just love these cottages with thatched roof. My children started giving me a Lilliput Lane cottage for Christmas. Then the garden center near my home in Long Island started selling them and they ran a sale after Christmas for half price. That was when I started buying the bigger cottages. Now, I have 19 cottages and two churches. Later on I got a mailing from Lenox China selling castles. I decided to buy two of them, the Neuschwanstein castle and the Falkenstein castle. I bought some pine trees and then started displaying my collection every Christmas season.
