Hey Everybody!
Thanks for welcoming me to the group. I'm Ted Howard from the (sometimes) Sunshine State of Florida, USA!
I've been collecting vintage Christmas including our precious little villages since the early 1990's. And I have been a builder since the early 2000's.
Currently my main focus is on creating two different villages which I have named:
Kringleton Valley - a vintage inspired design style
Nicholas Creek - which is a more detailed, not so vintage style

You can see my work on my website http://www.BrightonLakeStudio.com.

I look forward to getting to know people here and contributing what I can.

Hey Howard,
I was up in Northeast Florida north of Jacksonville from birth until 2017 when I retired. Now I’m in the Tampa Bay Area.

Howard, your memory is correct. I have some houses on Papa Ted’s Place. I still have those houses. They were some of my very first builds.

Hi Ted, in answer to your question---my blog is called Everything Croton and mainly about village life; however, almost every day there are vintage and putz posts. Here's the one in which I mentioned your work https://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2 ... ds_23.html
