The village

Im so excited about the new wee village!
So this is the extent of my Christmas tree this year. ....Yes I know its kinda sad but thats life. Just a 3 foot table top tinsel tree with SOFT decorations only- due to small babe, and to many crazy kittens! I dont want any death -by- broken ornaments or the like. The kittens destroy every display I make so no large tree this year! So this year its the scotties, handmade candy cane onrnies, soft vintage heart bowlies, and the village. I have no idea where the presents are supposed to go! Boy, has this past week has flown by! My hubby was home , so I disapeared for awhile! Got a bit of shopping done, Christmas baking accomplished, nothing much on the craft front. Found these adorable old Christmas houses at a thrift store, though! They are so beautiful, but were dreadful colors. One was purple, bright blue & a really awful burgundy so my daughter & I spent a bit of time & painted them white, added fake painty-snow and a whole lot of glitter & now were pleased with them!
This nativity scene is so beautiful! Its out of one of my Christmas cross-stitch books that I have for sale in the shop. I'm so sad to part with it, but my eyes are getting really bad, and I cant seem to do it anymore. I hope this book set will end up in loving cross stitch arms. Anyways, I really need to go browsing at all my favorite blogs, Ive' been so busy! I miss all the beautiful photos, so on that note gotta run.... but first I need to do a MAJOR BLOG LINK list update. I havent changed my list in 6 months!!! I need to add so very favorite bloggy friend links desperatly, and re look at what ive got on over there! I ve also done some super fun CHristmas swaps, & still waiting on one package, but cant wait to show you!

The houses look great with their new makeover. I need to get on posting my "keep the tree safe from kids and cats tutorial" on my blog!

Glad you are back! Sounds like you got a lot accomplished over the last few days. Your Scottie tree is too cute! I wish someone would have warned me when I first had a baby about NOT putting up a tree!! Oh my goodness, I had a disaster with my now 12 yr old when he was 3 months old and just starting to crawl...I'm so lucky he didn't get hurt when he pulled at the tree and it toppled over! After making sure he was okay a wave a relief washed over me, then I had a "meltdown" (my new fav word) over the fact that just about every ornament I had was broken...we had very little money at the time so, needless the say, the tree was bare that year!!

I just love the scotties. What a great theme for a tree! Did you make them yourself? Your village looks lovely, too. You've made me realize that I need to start my Christmas decorating soon.

I was starting to wonder where you'd gone - glad to hear you got to spend some time with your Hubby. We've done the little tree too. Actually, last year was the first time we had a full size tree up in five years. Even this year I don't dare to put the glass balls on. I tried last year and it was a disaster :(

I love how your village turned out. It's perfect!

I love the village, and it looks wonderful in white. We are not doing a big tree this year either~instead of the usual artificial, our living room tree will be a 3 ft. real one. I've also wondered, where am I going to put the presents?!
