Winter village under glass

We haven't gotten around to making our traditional winter village buildings from boxes yet.

Instead, Andrew dug through our blocks. Over the years, I've picked up an assortment of tiny wooden houses, trees, and animals. I frequently spot them in free boxes, grab bags, anywhere small pieces go to die.

Hip hip hooray for toys which do double duty!

Arranging them in an inch of sugar snow was so much quicker than last year's project.

Me again! I just had to drop by and tell you I made one of these but lacking the wood houses I used Lincoln logs. You can see the pics at my site. Thanks again for the cute idea!

And re: the Blogger comments feature- it's changed again, and now it looks like you can sign in using a variety of blog platforms.

What a creative idea! How pretty it looks beside the holly berries and leaves too :)

I love the way it looks! What a wonderful idea you had. I am amazed how many things can be put to use as decorations. I was skeptical at the mardi gras necklaces the kids hung on our tree (pic on blog) but they look really nice. I never would have thought small wood toys, yet a beautiful effect.
