    Did you make those two that kind of look knitted over on the right?

      I did. They are needlepoint on plastic canvas. I bought kits and did them years and years and years ago, and that was what we used for our village. There was also a yarn shop and a toy shop, a church, and, I think, a schoolhouse. They all have a windup music box inside them.

      They are still in a bag in the basement, but when I discovered the porcelain church, I decided that we needed a porcelain village instead. So every year for a number of years we picked up a new piece. We still use the chalet and the RR depot, because the one porcelain house wasn't enough, I thought, and I haven't seen any new ones that are the same scale as the others. And I never saw a depot, either.

      We used books to build up 2 tiers on the table, so we actually have 3 tiers, and I got that white sort of quilt batt fabric with glitter in it to cover the table.


      Some of the little figurines are plastic, but some are sort of ceramic that I bought in kits that I had to paint. They turned out ok, and all are pretty well in scale. Except for Snoopy's skating rink and the Clock Tower by the depot. The tower came to us from Kasha's daddy many years ago when he went to England for business.

      The skating rink belongs in MelMak's Peanuts collection, is a music box that spins slowly around, and it sits out in our living room all year.

      Any other questions?



      Edit to add: I think the "Tardis" came back from England when Mr. mossy and I were over there in '84. Also belong to MelMak.

          I don't remember. I'll have to go and play them so I can tell you later. If I remember.

          I think the church played Silent Night.

            The chalet plays "Edelweiss" and the depot plays "Love Makes the World Go Round".

                I got mine out of the attic on Sunday afternoon.

                I don't want to rush things.

                  Ours is going up sometime this week.

                  Maybe.

                    Working on the outside decorations last evening. Got a few more coming today, so I should have everything up on the outside by Saturday when my son gets home.

                      I just remembered we have new bubble lights to use this year!

                      Our old set is just about as old as our marriage, and we can’t find replacement bulbs anymore.

                        You should decorate the house across the street so you can see your lights from your living room!

                                Thanks! All I did was drape the pearls. MelMak and Mr. mossy did the rest.

                                Not much snow. But horrible, horrible freezing rain. It was -20C yesterday morning and 0C today. And it's been raining during the night and this morning. Very slippery. Thankfully we three are safe in the house today.
