No I haven't fished there. We discussed going halibut fishing when we were there in Sept. but neither of us were really up to it.

I love your greenhouse ornament! I'd have snapped that one up if I had seen it. Mine are usually seashells , water creatures or scuba divers. I like to do a traditional tree and a theme tree every year.

Cheryl, how cute! I like that Hallmark one even better -- guess I'm going to have to search Ebay for one, although I already bought a new piece for my Christmas village there Whistling

I have to admit, I love it too! The snowman on the side is a Hallmark ornament and I think he's pretty darned cute!

Most of my village pieces go in some way or another with my life/interests... I just got the "Klondike Sled Dog Excursions" (Lemax), which I've wanted ever since we took an Alaskan cruise back in 2008. And then there's "Fred's Butcher Shop" -- my father-in-law's name was Fred, and he actually was a butcher way back when. And "Paula's Pampered Pets," etc. etc.

I have to admit those things are kind of a hassle to store, though... I only have a dozen actual "buildings," plus some smaller things, and it takes several big totes to pack them away; there are a lot of people that have WAY more than that, and I can't imagine what they do with them?? (and, like pretty much all of the holiday decorations, I find it a lot more of a hassle to put them away than to get them out and set them up Hilarious! )

I got the Hallmark GH ornament today. Just as cute as can be! On the box there is a cute poem:

What a gardener's paradise-
Fresh flowers in safekeeping.
Ready now to be enjoyed
While outdoor plants are sleeping!
