2013 Christmas Village

 Good morning !
Yesterday , work started on our village for this year .. This was last years and it was amazing! It is one of my most popular blog posts ! I aquired a "bunch" of new houses this year at the GoodWill.. so this years village will be bigger and better !I can't wait for it to be finished so I can show you !

The Christmas Village is up and it is #fabulouslyfestive !! This is another one of my favorite things about Christmas , The Village..This year it is located in the living room and dining room ! I am honored to be doing another post for Joann Fabrics !
This was last years village you can see the post here .. I think this years is so much better !

 Over the years I have collected a lot of the light up village houses, most of them from Joann Fabrics. This is my husbands job to put out the village , and this year it was a little iffy if it was going to get put out! In past years we have used our dining room table , and moved it to the wall and set the village up on that . With getting the new dining room furniture we didn't want to do that. 
 So between my husband and myself we came up with the idea to raise up this tree and start the village around it. Underneath the white felt are plastic crates , Rubbermaid containers, Rubbermaid bins , wood shelves, and cardboard boxes :) We use white felt to drape the whole village set up and then set up the houses . Bags of fake snow , and all the little accessories get added.
 I think my husband did an amazing job getting it all up .
 Joann Fabrics has such cute houses and I am hoping there are a couple more new ones coming home !

 This tree with the book page tree topper is the perfect place for the village !
 You can find all the supplies to create your own village at Joann Fabrics and Crafts stores ! The houses , accessories , snow, felt , lighting cords , all of it ! The best part is its all on sale !!! I hope if you don't have a village you decide this year to create one ! It is truly a magical part of our Christmas decorations !

Oh my. I love your village. I had a large one, but gave it to my Daughter when she bought her home. I do have a small one right now.

Oh your village and tree are stunning. I have villages also, but I am not putting them up this year. I live alone and it's just to much work to do. I like how you have the tree elevated and the village under it. Great job!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Priscilla, your tree and village are beautiful. You and your husband did a fantastic display.
Your home will truly be a wonderland when you are finished.
I'm not surprised that Jo Ann Fabrics wants to share your creativity and talent.
Wonderful, wonderful. Enjoy !
Happy Thanksgiving too.

Priscilla, it really is an amazing sight! Your hubby did a fabulous job. If I waited for my hubby to do our village it wouldn't get done. lol! I have a small collection, about 21 houses of Dept. 56. Haven't put it out since we moved to this home. Thought I might this year, but we'll see. They are a lot of work. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Priscilla, I love the new way you've set up your beautiful village! I collect houses too (most of them were passed to me after my mom passed away). They are special to me and I always enjoy them!
