CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

I was going to share my Christmas village today, but our Boy Scouts have several villages set up and are raising money for their troop. Theirs is so detailed that I just had to share.
There is a skating rink, a bowling alley,
You can travel by bus or train!
and of course a diner.
A garage sale! Can you believe it? I want one for my village!
And Graceland! With Elvis's pink Cadillac!
They had everything on these long tables, with a backdrop of a snowy forest.
And look at this marching band in the parade. How cute.
There was even a child size gingerbread house-with Santa to greet the children. Two of my friends made this gingerbread house-isn't it darling. The Chiclet looking "candy" on the roof is Styrofoam meat trays painted different colors. Those girls are so clever! I took 75 photos, so these are just a few , but I hope you enjoyed them I am joining Marty at http:www.astrollthrulife.blogspot.com for Inspire Me Tuesday. Also joining Kim at http://www.savvysouthernstyle.net   for Wow Us Wednesday.

Oh what fun to travel around the tiny town. I liked the little blue bus called "Reindeer Lines". Peace

Good Morning-After-Christmas!

Chris said, "I'm locking up---you sleep late as you can, and we'll order Chinese for supper." as he left for a service call, and I DID.

I've just been so remiss in visiting my blog friends, in catching up, even in posting on my own, all this Fall, and just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed your visits and comments.

Your thoughts about the "tea" were almost right---I snapped the pictures before we put on the chargers, the cups and saucers, etc., for we DID offer coffee and tea with dessert.

But those Mammaw Goblets DID hold good old strong Southern iced tea---some sweet, some plain. We've been doing this so long, I know just how each lady "takes" hers. We just don't KNOW of an occasion that wouldn't call for several pitchers of tea as a beverage. .

I hope you've been well, and I hope to spend a lazy day just delving back into your archives to see all I've missed of "Home." The Christmas Village is just charming---especially the Yard Sale---who'd have thought of THAT? I think I see TWO milk cans, golf clubs, and a birdcage. Perfect.

And Graceland---I've been right through those gaudy gates several times, and sat in the Cadillac way back when he first got it. And it took me a minute to make out the little sleigh---with the two sets of hands to make the motion---if anybody would have neon animation at Christmas, it would have been Elvis.

All good wishes for the remainder of the year, and many blessings in 2014!
