It never really feels like December until we put up the Christmas village. The entire house could be decked out with icicles and ribbon and I would still feel a little empty inside.
We've been adding to our little village for 8 years now, buying pieces when they go on clearance after Christmas every year, and the holidays just wouldn't be the same without it.
Anyone who knows me (or reads this blog regularly) knows how much I love miniatures and knick-knacks, so it's no surprise that an entire village of them brings me so much joy.
See what I mean about the faces?
Are they any special decorations that you just can't live without?
