It is unusual for me to begin decorating for Christmas prior to December 1st. Since I don't know how many days I will be working each week, I realized I have to take advantage of any free time available to decorate my home and start baking.
Traditionally, the first Christmas item I put out is my Advent calendar.
This year Hubby and I set up my New England Village on Saturday. This is the full view of this year's set up. It changes a little bit each year.
A skaters holding their dresses are some that my Mom gave me that I grew up with. The gliding girl and the boy are more recent purchases (by recent I mean sometime in the last 15 years).
I think that I always place the church in the center .
Can you see Santa and his reindeer on the roof of the home on the right?
Even my village has a fabric and quilt vendor....the two figurines on the right below. You can also see the jam and jellies vendor in the picture above.
Thanks for stopping by!
