Dear Toula,
I want to thank you for the wonderful house you created for my family. My wife and I display Department56 Houses at Christmas time and I always thought it would be nice to have one that looks just like my house. Something I can display all year round rather than just at Christmas. From a few pictures sent over the computer you created a work of art that is treasured. We have it in our living room and I have received many compliments on it. I can see a day years from now where my wife and I will need to move into a retirement home and your creation will provide fond memories. I can see a day where I pass on and my children will decide who gets to keep this reminder of their childhood home. The point is that in a world of manufactured things that anyone with money can buy, you have created something special, something lasting, something meaningful. I hope you appreciate how your work touches others lives as it has touched mine. Thank you….
