Santa Castle 2009
« on: December 13, 2009, 00:25:05 »
Here are a bunch of pictures of my Santa Castle for this year. The last time I did one was in 2007, after wich I realized I needed more Steck parts to do something bigger. I have the parts now and here is the new version, about twice the size of my last one.

There are a total of 34 different pictures I've taken. I will post a few each day until I've worked through them all.

That's all for today. Next time we will take a look at the top floor - the workshop.

Absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing ... showed it to the kids and now they want more space by the Christmas tree to build one of their own (albeit at a much smaller scale).

Very nicely laid out and decorated, Tim!  <*)

I see some parts from one of the very early advent calendars. The bakery one with the lady in white is my favourite because of the cookie sheets and other neat pieces. I wish Playmobil would bring us some more completely new Christmas-themed accessories like the wreath with candles that came out a few years ago.
And I LOVE those little elves with the curly boots. They are adorable! :elf:

Thanks for helping me to get more into the Christmas spirit with your photos. :xmascheer:

Thank you Tim for posting these pictures! :xmascheer: I absolutely love what you have done with this castle, it was one of the reasons I binged on acquiring Advent sets last year so I could accumulate parts for something similar. Nicely laid out and beautifully photographed, look forward to future installments! :xholly: :xholly:

i love it!!!!. it is the coziest castle i have ever seen.  i can hardly wait for you to post some more photos.  i have never seen the advent calendar with the baking goodies.  i am off to heather's database to look for it.  i actually have an almost complete santa;s workshop, although my bench is missing the vice, and someday i want to do something similar to this with my victorian house, although i like the use of the castle better.  i also like how you have incorporated an atrium, as santa needs to have plants for the gardeners on his list.
thanks for posting.   kaethe

Hi Tim  :elf:

   Thank you so much for sharing your North Pole castle. I too really like all the special touches you set up in this festive creation. Great photos by the way, such good angles and lighting :clap:

Thanks for the comments. I really like to make it seemed lived in. Things lke the glass and plate on the side table or the cat sleeping by the greenhouse are what make a scene come alive for me.
Here are the greenhouse pictures.
