Here are some of the Holiday decorations...


Saturday, December 08, 2012

we have at our house.







I have Department 56 Dickens Christmas Village buildings and accessories. Not everything...just enough!

My grandmother used to set up a little village on top of her buffet in the dining room. When I was a child, I used to love to look at it during the Holidays. My grandma made a ceramic Christmas tree which she painted, fired and completed with little, multi-colored bulbs that shine the light through so that it looks like a "real" tree. I have her tree as the heart of my display. I loved it then. I love it now.

I think...no, I know that I love my village because I so loved her village from so long ago...60+ years ago.

I hope you enjoy it too.

    So pretty! Love your pictures. Thanks for sharing your decorations with us. I have put up the bare minimum this year as we will be away for Christmas and I love to put the decorations up but hate to take them down. The bare minimum is my compromise! We have been enjoying our fireplace this year. It really adds to the Christmasy feel.

    Looks great! My aunt collects the Dickens village. I think she has about 60 pieces but doesn't put them all up anymore.
