Happy Holidays from my house to yours. We begin our trip through the Christmas village with a stop at the quilt shop (what else?). This is one of my favorite pieces. I hunted/waited for while to find it.
So, my village has multiple places that are important in a special way. SO, I have the log cabin and wild animals, compelte with an outhouse. This is Derrick’s place (my late husband)/ He was totally an outdoor guy and wanted a log cabin. In front of that we have our Ohio State House and Fan center, complete with Tailgate party. THis is for our biggest OSU an and my manfriend, Kevin.
Over on the other side of the village we have Uncle Donald’s place Complete with Farm House, Barn, silo and tractor. Yep, the same Uncle Donald that made quilts. Gong to his farm and visiting him and Aunt Helen was one of my favorite things to do.
Then of course we have a few of my favorite things. A dog rescue and a dog training academy. We have these in honor of my late great Koko, that spurred my deep love and affection for dogs. We now have 4 dogs and have rescued many other and a few kitties along the way. I tried to bring home a baby fox that came to my car one day, and Kevin put his foot down.. They were so cute. I know he was right. I am sure Momma was not far away.
I totally love the fountain Kevin got me this year. It changes colors and actaully has water in it. It is so pretty. He knows the things I love.
Of course we have
Bethlehem. It sets up from the village in a
desert. The whole village is about 15 feet long. There are so many build
ings. I even have more that don’t make it on to the table because I am out of room.
One of the oldest pieces I have is the ice skating ring, where there is actual ice skating going on. I am sure I have had this one for nearly 25 years. And yes that is Santa flying over the ice skating ring. Christmas Music also plays as Santa flys above the village. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season. My best to all of you and your families.
Treasure your family
