White Winterland - INSIDE!

Yesterday was all about the snow outside, and today is all about the snow inside!

Here is a picture of our snow village. There are stick-on snowflakes on the window behind it that glow in the dark, so it's pretty cool when the lights are off.

This is probably my favorite part of the village. I use mirrors and little glass pebbles and jewels from Michael's to make waterfalls joining one lake to the next. At the fishing village towards the back is a couple sitting on a park bench watching the ducks. Guess who that might be?

This is the left side of the village, where most of the residential houses are, along with the toy shop on top of the hill.

And this is the right side of the village where all the recreational activities occur.

Not all the pieces are the same scale, but I love them all the same. Over the last 10 years in particular, my husband and my grandkids will pick out a piece and present it to me proudly for "next year". I don't think there's much more room for anything....except last night at a neighborhood Christmas dinner, he spotted that *their* snow village had an antique little car in it, so I can imagine there will be one in ours next year too!

Beautiful display...and such a lot of work to get it all set up! I am very impressed. It reminds of me of my doll house days, but instead of one doll house, you have a whole village of "let's pretend"..neat!!

What a wonderful little xmas village! We had one when I was growing up also - not as cute or big, but it still is one of our favorite xmas decorations at my mom's house!
