This is the village which my husband and I have been collecting for years from department 56. This year I did not want to put up a huge display so this is what we did. As it is there are about 42 houses.
This is the top part of our Christmas tree which is in our family room. I love the traditional red and green theme. The elf on the tree is about 3 feet tall. He sits on a branch and has a bird sitting on his hand.
This last picture is of my husbands office. I put up this tree for now until he brings me another 3 foot tree tomorrow. For now this will have to do. It has different ornaments, including a hammer, a wrench and some other tools that I cannot remember. My husband is a contractor that explains the tools.
Just wanted to share with you what has been going on around here this weekend. I have not done much scrapping except a little bit of cutting with my RED cricut and the new Lite cartridge Jolly Holiday. I did not get one of the new ones from Walmart but this is like if it was new. I have only used it once and that was last year on black friday. Now that I have finally finished the inside of the house I can go back to scrapping. I am so very happy. I took these pictures of the house today to share with you all. Hope you all enjoy them as much as I am.
