Big farm land : )

Still more rural.

So, let's take a look at some new things for 2011. First is the sasquatch on the far left. I made that thimble and yes, he is well concealed.
I've added a new train. It's pewter, from England, and all the pieces are actually thimbles. Note the dots on the tops. Also in the picture is the new clock "tower" I made. Four clocks for maximum visibility. (LOL).
Next are a couple new pewter 3-D houses along with some old houses to create a unique, almost cul-de-sac type look. Also, note that I have (new for this year) lamp posts.
The Amusement Park has some new additions as well. Most noticeably is the Old Woman's Shoe.
I made some changes and added some new things for Christmas Village. Along with new train track (thanks, Pam!) so I could put the trains out where they belong, I added new items to the village itself. Note the elf, new houses, and outdoor fireplace. There's more, but that's for you to investigate!
Last year, since I put the solar system (thanks, Sandie!) above Thimble World, I needed to include an Observatory. My initial creation was a thimble domed with the observatory with a building made of cardboard next to it. Needless to say, the cardboard building bothered me. It needed to be a thimble! So, that's what I did. The building next to the observatory is now an actual thimble to match all the rest.
New animals are added this year. Here's a new moose.
There are so many new things, I am still trying to remember them all. Under the carnival sign, behind the "college" on the mountain top, is a secret building.
Of course, what world would be complete without a UFO? And even better, an alien abduction for the holidays? (Yes, I made this.)
So, that's it for this post of my Thimble World 2011. Thanks for looking!!!
