Hello friends. I had a Christmas card project all set to share with you, but I am sharing my first Christmas Decor project of the 2015 season: My Dickens Village.
The Village is built on a two piece Styrofoam base which I enhanced with inked walked ways and stone retaining walls. The village is 18 x 48 inches. I placed this on the buffet section of an large antique serving piece (seven feet tall x fifty-four inches wide). This is the largest surface on the cabinet, with open shelves above. I actually purchased two additional styrofoam bases (12 inches deep) to use on the upper shelves as my Village grows.
Last year after Christmas I purchased some very inexpensive Lexmark people and two vendors. Sadly, they are not of the same quality as the Dept 56 pieces.
Does this guy look guilty or what? I call this the nineteenth century Starbucks. NO CUP drama in my Village.
