    Wonderful, wonderful! Have loved “Bachman’s Idea House” for each season, when I was fortunate enough to be in the Cities to visit them. Thanks so much for posting from this year’s displays. Great ideas, as usual, but glad I’m home in Denver because I would have spent way too much on so many things I loved! Any way you can create a “zoom” feature for your photos? Thanks again. Always love your blogs.

      If you look at my blog on your phone, you can zoom in, Diane. I know many readers do that:) And good news…this is last year’s display; this year’s starts in November.

      Several locations in the Mpls/St Paul, MN area.
