Christmas Snow Village

Part of my Christmas Snow Village sits in a niche above my fireplace
{you may have noticed it in my Stocking Post}
and the other part sits on the top shelves of my built-ins on either side of the fireplace.
This is what it looks like:
This year, I decided to incorporate the snow village to the top shelves {mostly because I'm running out of room.}
 and I really liked how it turned out.  This is the right side.
. . .and this is the left side.  The reason I'm running out of room is because our little snow village just keeps growing...
Reason Being?  - Another Tradition !!
My husband and I  started this tradition our very Christmas together as a married couple.  We buy  a new house or bigger item for each year that we've spent Christmas together.  We're now up to twelve!
Each year, while decorating this area, I sing... "Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow..." as I sprinkle the snow...
 I use the boxes that the houses come in to give different heights.

When we start pulling out our Christmas Decor Our Snow Village is, by far, the MOST EXCITING for the boys!   Even more so than the Christmas Tree.

  1. So cool! I remember being completely fascinated by these tiny Christmas villages when I was young--one of my aunts had a row of houses on her mantel that I would look at in awe.
    Our family tradition was to put up a Playmobile nativity scene with Roman soldiers, a stable, animals, and angels hanging from the ceiling.

    I love the over all balance of your mantle with the side bars of Christmas villages.

  15. Thank you for sharing your Snow Village with us. It really makes you get more into the holiday spirit. I think that is the same one my sister has. She leaves hers out all the time.

  16. Under the big tick tock there is a village of DaNita's world where God has given her the desires of her heart, wouldn't anyone want to live there? I see her among the school children and buying gifts at the general store. With all the chaos around us, isn't it nice we live in His Heavenly Realm. God Bless you.
