This is a close-up of a church I have never seen before--from a larger photo taken by AG at the Golden Glow of Christmas Past Convention 2015 exhibit room. I manipulated the angle so you could see it better. Thoughts?

I love this design. I'd really like to see the right side better. It's a great church and a cool fence.

Very interesting. Never seen anything like it before, cool beans. It is fun to look at
the other two houses and know which ones they are just from the small amount of them
showing.

GG Convention was a bit far for me this year. There are tons of pix on their facebook page but you need to be a member to access them. In two years it will be in Lancaster PA so I should be able to attend that one. They are well worth the price of admission.
