A Christmas Village Collection

How many of you have a Christmas village collection?  Sorry to say, I don't.  I just don't have the budget for one, even if I were to buy a piece at a time.  I do enjoy seeing them on display though. 

Have you seen the handmade houses at A Creative Dream?  Yes, I said Handmade!!!  Take a look at these?

    Give away alert !  



Aren't they darling?  Look at that first one, the yellow and red one.  Guess what?  I just won it!  I think it is so cute.  I know it's not traditional colors or style, but I'm not very traditional anyway.  As you can see from the picture, it can also be used as an ornament.  I don't think so!  This is my first Christmas village piece, and that's how it's gonna be used.  It even has a hole in the back to insert a light.

So, I can now say I have started my Christmas village collection!  And since it started as handmade, guess I'll have to figure out what I can make to add to it.  Stay tuned....you know me, I'll think of something.
