Well, part of my 2010 mantra was only bringing things into our home that we love (wealthy). Well, I love Christmas and I love the Dept. 56 Villages.
So, I finally jumped in and started a village. I’ve been thinking about it for several years, but never wanted to spend the money.
My mom has a village and I always loved it. I even looked at them in Galena. But, I just didn’t want to spend the money. But, when I was walking out of a store with a gift card in hand and I saw that the villages were 30 percent off, I decided to take the plunge.
I plan to find one piece each year, after the holidays (hopefully on sale). This year, I actually brought home two pieces because I couldn’t decide. And, they were on sale. And, I had a gift card. (Did I mention that?)
(These are both part of the original Snow Village collection – Colonial Revival and Richmond Holiday House)
I think it’s going to be fun to pull these out next year, and a really fun new tradition. Give it twenty years, and I will have one bad, mamajama village. Mark.these.words.
Do you have any collections?
