From my home to yours, Merry Christmas!!! May your holidays be safe not only for the season, but thoughout the year. I have been blessed since I've been blogging with you dear friends. I hope to make many more.
I hope you enjoy my Christmas surprise: My Christmas Village! Be sure and stick around for my personal holiday greeting at the end of all the village film. Roll it ............
I put up this village every year, and it is also added to every year with more buildings, features, people, etc. It takes a few days to assemble and sits on several tables. (You can imagine the maze of wires underneath, but even so it's very steamlined, where I can flip a switch that controls most of it.) When completed, it takes up most of our 8 x 40 glass porch. I don't stick to one particular name brand of buildings, I have all sorts of manufacturers represented here- it makes for much more creative freedom... and Some of the features are miniatures I tweaked to have a holiday spin.
What makes it even more fun is that there are a few elements in my village that are not usually found in a traditional Christmas village; such as a graveyard, a harbor, a haunted area, and even a "wrong side of the tracks".
This video was filmed, edited, and uploaded by my son-in-law- Thank you, Chris for taking the time to do this for me!
Thats all folks,I will see you in the New Year. Merry Christmas, Love you, Marie Antionette
