My First Table Top Tuesday, A Christmas Village

Happy Tuesday all! That means it's Table Top Tuesday at Marty's A Stroll Thru Life,make sure you give her a visit if you haven't ever had the privilege. I have been lurking over there for awhile and I am so excited to participate. I hope my sofa table counts!

I have had this village for probably 13 years or so. It was a gift from my hubby. I have enjoyed watching my two younger children and now my granddaughter peek into it and sometimes rearrange. I have broke two pieces in moving and replaced them but now its discontinued so sadly development is over in this little village.

It contains a book store, flower shop , a windmill we added as a nod to my husbands Dutch heritage and a music store. I think I will check trusty old EBay for a replacement for the church.

Here is the flower shop. The little florist is working away inside potting Poinsettia's. Sorry for the poor photography.

The book store is open and ready for story time for the kiddo's. Afterwards everyone can go outside to skate on the pond or watch from the bridge.

The music store is located near the gazebo where the local band plays Christmas songs. I can hear them playing Jingle Bell's right now with all the village's shoppers singing along. Can you hear it?

One more picture with the lights just because the photographer is using her training wheels still(he he he). Thank you Marty for hosting TTT and I will be enjoying all the beautiful vignette's today! Have a WONDERFUL Tuesday and Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Holiday season!

What a beautiful village. I am hoping to find a safe place to set up my village this year.

That's a huge village huh?

I came from the Philippines but living half of my life in Stockholm, Sweden.

Swedish tradion isn't as whimsical like the US and the Phils. I missed all the stuffs for Christmas. It's hard to find like what you have. I might ask someone from a family living in California to grab some for nxt yr's Yuletide.

Precious things...
