Here it is!

I so excited to reveal my village. I had to do a bit of fixing up to my village, only a bit though. I added various types of glitter of course. For now, it has found a home in my uncottage style living room because I want to see it everyday. I think next year I will put it in my shabby bedroom. Can you believe I found this entire thing for only $25? It is stamped Japan on the bottom.

I had to add the trees to these two. There were without.

I thought I would share a recent trip from last week to GORGEOUS St. Augustine Florida. We took Stink Bone and I caught a few cute snapshots of him enjoying the road and trolleys. A bit of the building that you see in the background is Flagler College. What a beautiful winter day it was. We then went to the beach and I must say I think the beach is even more lovely in winter than summer. The water takes on a very dark blue, like midnight or saphire. Some relatives from Indianna came with us and they had never seen the ocean in their 60 or more years of life. There is something about going to the ocean with someone that has never seen it before. It is so powerful.

Wait until you see what I bought today!

I just happened to run to the Sallie today (Salvation Army) to get a break from stink bone jones. Found some very cute things. Then ran next door to another thrift shop and WAIT until you see the village I purchased! I was rather surprised at the price of $25 but it is old and very very Cottage Style. The bottom is stamped with Japan. When I post pictures, I would love to hear from you if you've seen these before.

I also sold my wreath! I wanted to keep it for myself but decided to post in in my Etsy shop. To my surprise it sold! I am going to make a few all through out the year so that next year I can keep one, sell some, and gift some.
