Visiting a Winter Christmas Village with Special Memories!In: Celestina Marie Designs, Christmas, cottages 5:00:00 AM By: Celestina Marie
The above curio cabinet, in our home entry, holds the cottages and buildings I have long collected. They are not expensive pieces, but rather quaint designs that make me smile. The designs, paint colors and shapes remind me of vintage collectibles. Once the village scenes are set in place, snow added and accessorized, this sweet city comes to life. Each shelve holds 4 or 5 buildings with trees and accents.
I still have the precious memory of my Best Guy gifting me a few first pieces in the first years of our marriage. So many gorgeous collections have been produced since this set was started, but I would not trade it for the world. Like any old house, the love and meaning these buildings carry are very special and will be cherished forever.
When I added my cross collection and the word Faith above the cabinet, from that time on, the word Faith has been illuminated by the light streaming in the window. The cast of light stays all day till nightfall. I know it is coincidental, but it looks beautiful to me and was a sweet surprise after the word was added.
The following pictures share these wonderful Christmas gift buildings and special memories this village holds.
Thank you for stopping by today and visiting my ole time village. I hope Christmas will hold beautiful memories for you and yours.
Blessings be yours always, Celestina Marie
