Snow Village

I have been bringing out my Christmas decorations all weekend.  I like to wait until after Thanksgiving to begin my decorating.
I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her weekly Tabletop Tuesday.  I love to see what other people have to share for their tabletops.
My snow village is normally the first thing I bring out at Christmas.  They are all candles that were mostly purchased at Pottery Barn several years ago.  I received some as gifts and some I purchased after Christmas.
I arrange the village on top of our entertainment center.
The little snow people I have had for years.  They are all dressed in their winter clothes.
There are green trees and white ones.

This pic didn't take well with all the white but I love this snow lady dressed all in white.  She even has ber purse with some bling!

Now I have to get back to my Christmas decorating.  I have boxes everywhere!

Thanks for visiting and God Bless,
Donna

I've never seen these candles before. Wow! Your arrangement is beautiful. Makes me wish I was home decorating myself....and not recovering from surgery!

I do like the snow village - very pretty! I thought about starting a village years ago, but I don't have the room for one.
Have a great week.

Looks like a little village they would be filming in for a Hallmark Christmas Card commercial.

You are way ahead of me! Too many things to do, as usual. We have the perfect weather for the snow village and people-COLD, with a light dusting of snow. Have fun decorating for the season. Love your new look! ♥♫

I was thinking about you as I decorated for Christmas. I did my mantle over the fireplace and thought, "Now, where is Donna? I need her to help me with this. She is good at it and I stink!" I think the mantle just looks cluttered. I can't seem to get the idea of how to group things meaningfully. I thought about posting photos of all my decorations and having you advise me on how to rearrange it all! ha! This is awesome. You are very talented in this area!

How pretty and entertaining on your entertainment center. I've never seen these village pieces as candles before. They really are unique. Love the little snow people.

The wintry village ai absolutely stunning...

Looks like village if you think of Sweden. It's a 12.5 below 0, so it's freezing at 7.15am §;-)

Happy TTT...
