Salute Armed Forces for May 2017

May is Armed Forces month with Armed Forces Day May 20 and Memorial Day May 29. And, ThimbleWorld is ready to salute our servicemen and women!


The train proudly displays patriotic colors.

SALUTE!

Every thimble is service oriented.

The American Legion's Four Pillars hold fast!

The Winged Goddess of Victory stands true!

A fort guards the port along with tanks and a helicopter.

Lady Liberty greets all who come to the bay!

The capitol.

America...Home of the Brave!

Remember to look for this tag!


Hoppy Easter!

Thimble World is ready for Easter!


Brightly colored houses on decorated "eggs."

Lots of eggs everywhere.

The Easter Bunny awaits next to the "egg tree" in the center of the village.

An Easter peep sits in its open thimble egg.

A spiral galaxy in an egg...

The "rugged cross" on top of the hill.  I felt I should include a symbol of what this Christian holiday is truly all about.

The little duckie swims happily in the pond.

The colorful house tucked away shows Easter happiness.

Some pretty, Easter-Spring time flowers.

Coast egg rounds off this year's egg-citing Easter decor.

Have a wonderful, happy, hoppy Easter!


Hello Spring!

After such a harsh winter here in the PNW, everyone eagerly awaited sunshine and warmer weather.  Although the warmth is slow to arrive, ThimbleWorld is now fully immersed!

Spring is showing its colors.  Green and flowers are everywhere!

Even a treehouse is ready for warmer weather!

Green surrounds the homes.

The greenhouse is prepared for spring along with the home next door.

Small Japanese buildings graced by colorful trees.

A towering Japanese pagoda surrounded by flowers and color-laden trees.  A boat embarks from a tunnel into the lake.

A lighthouse stands guard over the springtime boaters on the lake.

Lake-shore homes have a great view!

The train even sports springtime colors.

The Thimble Museum sits atop the hill awaiting the curious tourists.

Another tourist curiosity, The Round House, is just outside the village.

A colorful home snuggled away from the village.

The top is down on the car leaving the plantation outside the village.

A long arch of trees line the driveway to the plantation house.

Hello Spring!










March Green

Welcome to March and the green of Spring and, of course, St. Patrick's Day!


The Irish village sits among the "trees" of clover.

Lovely Irish hats mark the entrance to the Irish village.

Even the train displays lucky clovers.

Hidden surprises await under the castle atop the green hill...


Castle nestled in secret space outside the village...

Even a castle within the clouds.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

See you again this month for the Spring display!

February is for Lovers!

February is here again, and so is another Valentine thimble display. Even the train is all red for the holiday.

Hearts, candy, and flowers everywhere!

The "tunnel of love" is open with a boat floating into the lake of flowers.

No Valentine's Day is complete without roses...
 

The garden gate is open...

Flowers adorn the fence and a lone pink tree stands in wait for spring.

In the center of "town" is a lovely Valentine tree with a Valentine home with hearts puffing from the chimney. A lover's bench with hearts on the seat awaits...

Another Valentine home done in purple and blue. Another bench is poised in front of a flowery thimble.

More Valentine houses around the neighborhood adorned in hearts and flowers.

This house is decorated in colorful, heart-shaped "candy."

New in "town" this year a little "canisters" of flowers. Not only do they sit on a heart, but a heart adorns the front of the canister.

More canisters...

Lastly, the crown on the hill, so to speak. The key to my heart waits to be unlocked.
Happy Valentine's Day to all!
