Ann could not do plain. [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

We decided to add some of our smaller Kachina Dolls.

Ken

The Pueblo indians of the SW , Hopi & Zuni tribes, carved Kachina dolls to use in their ceremonies. There are many,many different ones.
The ones pictured are Mud Head Kachinas.

[Embarrassed] (supposed to be singing): "ab solutely fab u lous . . . . " That stagecoach looks superb. First time I have seen it, I think. Might get one now. Thanks for the pic.

Oh Boy, you got me wringin' my hands over the Stage Coach here.
Absolutely magnificent!!!
Maybe I'll buy it for my husband. That's sounds like a good idea, huh! For our anniversary.
Love the cactus and the Kachinas give it that southwest touch.
I would like to see more of the stagecoach. Maybe with a Roy Rogers or Lone Ranger back ground.
Ann, I know you must have those BG lurking around some where. [New Laugh]
Waiting for more. This is just so much fun.

Good morning Ann & Ken

Unbelievably - you have probably a giant assortment at small things to decorate - where did you get all this??? How many years ago have you begun to buy these things??? Great display!!!

Ken - how do you have display your trains. Are they integrated in landscapes with houses and trees or just plain???

Ann - a small idea. You could also unite your two hobby, by issuing a train of Ken in the background with for example the Rodeo Cowgirl & Cowboy plus the Gilded Stagecoach in front; all westward driving.

[Smile] [Smile] Have a wonderful day!!! [Smile] [Smile]

Hi Liliane,

I didn't plan on doing a photo of the stagecoach as I had just put it by itself but got some request so threw some things together.

I like the unplanned displays sometimes better.
I really like using things I already have around the house. And I will keep my small Kachina dolls with the stagecoach.( Till I find a Roy Rogers. Must be one around here somewhere.). [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

Ken has a giant train layout with houses , trees ,roads etc. and I sometimes "borrow" stuff from his train room. [Big Grin]

Sandra, Mimi & KK,

Buying a solid is like climbing Mt. Everest , you do it because it is there. [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

And I would much rather shop & buy than do any climbing. [New Laugh] [New Laugh]

The good thing about buying at NM is that when you get the little darlings home and they don't talk to you , you can return them. [Big Grin]

Ann,

What a great display! The stagecoach is very nice.

And I agree with you, I'd rather shop too than do any climbing!! [Big Grin]

Lovely pics as usual, but does the stagecoach really have Estee Lauder visible/written across the top of the wagon? If so, I sure don't like that, it is nice to have them signed, but in an obscure place.

Also has anyone seen the Showgirl in person? I have ordered mine, and thought there was a pic of it on the site, but can't find it!

Thanks for the input!

All the best, Pancho (Brenda)

Ann, your picture is great! Love the Southwestern scenes. I have to agree with Pancho, though, that the EL logo detracts from piece. Why commercialize it? I notice the logo is also on the roller coaster.

I agree with you Pancho and Martha- I don't like the visible Estee Lauder name on the solids either. [Roll Eyes]
