Merry LITTLE Christmas

It takes a village.

I love to set up my winter village. It takes up some prime real estate in the living room of my tiny little pink house for a few weeks and then it's gone, so I really enjoy it every day! The Barclay lead figures are constantly being re-arranged.

Let's see what's going on today, shall we?

Looks like the twins are bundled up and getting a ride through the snow drifts that have been building up over by the church.

On the frozen pond in the town square, I see the youth are practicing their moves. Looks like the perfect weather for a sleigh ride through the town for the young-at-heart, too.

That dapper young lad in blue is trying hard to impress his lass who watches from the sidelines!

Oh look! Someone built a snowman!

And there's the matching set to the twins we spied earlier, also heading into the town square via sled.

Let's see what's happening on the hill.

Great day for a ski run, but watch that drop, would ya?

A private rink is a favorite special place that warms the heart of these two love-birds as they skate circles around a decorated tree.

And overseeing it all are the birds in the branches who serenade us with a cheerful "Merry Christmas"!


  1. it's so fun to unpack treasures year after year and this whole scene is amazing, thanks for sharing Jan. Merry Christmas!!

  3. good for it....reminds me of one in my childhood....

  4. I love this. It's beautiful. I didn't know about Barclay lead figures. What a collectible.
    I would love to live in a place like this for Christmas. Maybe we should invest in an old house togetheer... in, maybe, Nevada City or someplace where it snows and call it the "friends" house.Just for friends to come and stay. Wouldn't that be fun.
    The buffet is absolutely beautiful.
    Merry Christmas my dear one.

  5. Would love to spend an afternoon skating in your enchanted little world.
    Merry Christmas!!!
