Visiting A Little Snow Village

Each Christmas
 I enjoy displaying this tiny snow village. 
In fact,
I like it better then the larger village I have displayed for years and spent more to own. 
This one has sweet little cottages that measure about 3-5 inches tall.  
Most are collectibles from the thrift shops, dollar stores and garage sales. 
I repaint them, adding snow and glitter, giving them a little face lift.

This season 
I decided to place this darling little town in the vintage cabinet
 in our library family room.
 It is fun to set up and the lighted cabinet shows it well.
This cabinet has 3 shelves
 I fill all with these darling buildings, trees, snow
 and  tiny people which I am always on the look out for.

I would love to live in a village like this,
 just for the season.
I imagine being there walking the snowy little lanes
and building snowmen in the front yards.

 This all reminds me of childhood memories living in the north.
 Gathering at the little church and grocery shopping at the town grocer.

 The school is located next to a barn
where the children learn about farm animals and explore the outdoors.  
This village even has an art shop where I would spend a lot of my time.

 Come join me and visit this dear little town.
 We can stop at the Tea shoppe for tea and then browse the bookstore
or gaze at the pretty gems in the jewelers window. 
Santa's Work Shop is located in this town
 and we may even see him ready to go down the chimney
 on the roof of one little cottage.
Even the skaters will be enjoying an evening at the ice rink.

When we stopped in the book store,
 Santa was reading a story to a little girl.

We passed some children making a snowman 
and their sweet dog was waiting patiently to add the broom.
We went to this little church for a Christmas service
 outside carolers were singing beautifully.

It is the beauty of the season in this Little Snow Village.
Thank you for visiting.
 Hope you enjoyed strolling with me across town.
