Christmas Village

I don't know why, but I love putting out my Christmas village! Maybe it's the nostalgia, maybe the connection to each building I feel. Each piece represents something in our life...the coffee shop for me, the gas station for Justin....Perhaps it's my inner child, playing with houses...what ever it is, I love looking at each and every one of them and I hope you do too!

This is not an expensive line, not Dept. 56, not even Lefton, I have collected it for about 10 years now from good ole' Walmart. I know right? Sadly, my collection has ended with 12 houses because the quality is just not there anymore. However, I will cherish this collection and hopefully it will survive for my children's children!

Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Go see Mary @ Little Red House to see other beautiful mosaics!


  1. Very pretty cottages...thanks for sharing your Christmas joy!!!

  2. My Mom has a village too. I love to check it out each year. I don't have a village...too much to dust! LOL...

    I love the rich colors in your village. Santa looks mighty cute too.

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I love the Christmas villages and your mosaic is just lovely. Love the Santa face in the middle!

  7. Aw...sweet. The villages are something I never started...I think I'm glad, they would add up quickly. Yours are darling no matter what brand they are. I do think if my blog is still around next year (it better be) that I will get out my daughter's doll house and decorate it. My dad made it for her when she turned 9 and it is huge. (She's 25 now) I think we all still love to play!

  8. These houses are adorable! I treasure mine as well and can't wait to bring them out each year.

  9. Your village is precious. I had one years ago...but decided to part with it. Not sure it was one of my brightest decisions...but trust me, I still am not hurting in the decorations dept!!

  10. What great pieces - very nostalgic! I can see why you enjoy putting it out each year!!

  11. Michelle,
    Your village is beautiful!
