We woke to another dreary day with the rain slowly coming down, but the temperature, oh the temperature, it’s near 60ºF or 16ºC. Unbelievable! and Wonderful! Who cares if it’s raining!
Raindrops on the window.
Red crabapple berries are so colorful on the trees against the gray skies. What a wonderful spring, (I mean late fall) day!
The feeder isn’t too busy this morning: sparrows,…
… a chickadee,… and a house wren.
My husband started setting up our Snow Village houses yesterday. I don’t have many, but just enough. Part of my collection is my grandma’s church and house which are very special to me.
We don’t put them out every year and we don’t have a set place for them. One year they were in the bay window and other years they’ve been on the buffet in the dining room, other years we will put a house here and there. This year my husband put an old bi-fold closet door on the desk in the family room. It seems to be the perfect size. Here’s a sneak peak at our little village.
I’ve been collecting these houses since the late 1980s. They used to be really really popular, but you don’t see them for sale too much anymore. I remember that it seemed like every Hallmark store or gift shop carried these houses and had massive displays of them.
Here’s a photo of a little tray of Santas that I have on the table in the foyer.
And last, but not least, here are Gina and Lucy sharing their special things as sisters so lovingly do. Gina is letting Lucy hold her Rudolph toy and Lucy is giving Gina her silver ball ornament to hang on the Christmas tree. ❤
Hope you all are having a sweet and peaceful weekend.
