Christmas Vignettes

Hello, and happy holidays! I thought I would share some pictures of my vignettes around my home. I hope you all are enjoying the season so far. I'm linking up with Cindy of My Romantic Home for show and tell Friday. Here is my snowman collection. I put down red and white lights first, and then the batting over the top. You can't see the lights in these pics, because we used the big spotlight to take these pics.
You can click on any picture to make it bigger. The little sign I made in the front of the snowmen, says "Shaped by the cold, from the Warmth of Young Hearts." I usually leave them up til February. Some of them I had made a few yrs ago. They are the ones in the front with the little scarves on. There is a father, mother, and children.

This is my Christmas village, made with houses that my dear mother-in-law made in needlepoint. there are several others that I just didn't have room for. The red one in the front is a firehouse.


I love this part of the village where there are trees and wreaths for sale. My mother-in-law made the little tiny wreaths. Aren't' they just adorable? Next to the fence stands a mailbox for Santa's mail.



It takes quite awhile to assemble everything. I leave this up til Feb also. It looks so pretty at night with the white lights underneath it. Thanks for coming by, and may all your Christmas wishes come true! Don't forget to stop by Cindy's to see the other participants.

Hi, Debbie,
You have a wonderful snowman collection, and I love the saying on the sign you made for them, just perfect. I don't blame you for leaving up that cute winter village for a while either. Your mother in law did a wonderful job on it!!! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your friendship and wish you and your family the happiest of Christmases. Love and blessings~ Vicki

Happy Holidays Debbie, thanks for stopping by my blog! Love your snowman collection! And your village is absolultely adorable!
Those little houses are the cutest ever, so unique and original! I closed my Etsy store for the holidays but you can send me an email if you'd like me to make anything special for you! I have the stuff to make more of the snowman boxes, just not the rub-ons and can always make more of the gingerbread tags too, just let me know! roccoking@windstream.net
Have a wonderful holiday!
