Pssst, Sophie!

Hi Honey.

I know how much you love our Christmas village,


so when the collection went on sale today I couldn't help adding another building,

the Apple Farm!! What do you think? It's much cuter in real life.

I'll let you decide where to put it in the neighborhood when you get home.

Maybe on the lower level between the windmill and the chicken house? Your call.

Don't tell Daddy though because you know how crazed he gets about all the Christmas stuff, especially when we have to repack it and fit it all back in the closet. We'll just slip it in, and he probably won't even notice.

But that's not all! I also gotsome fencing (two packages),

street lamps that really light up (!),

some shrubs,

and a Santa! 

We miss you very much. Our house is sad and lonely, and even our Christmas tree doesn't sparkle as brightly.

Be a good girl: say please and thank you, practice your violin, mind your grandparents. Daddy and I will see you tomorrow.

Love,
Mama

How sweet! My mom has her own Christmas village as well that she has been working on since I was young; every year after Christmas, we would make the trek out to Long Island to Harrow's where they had a MONSTROUS selection of Christmas village houses and accessories. I started up my own little village this year, and for the first time ever, my mom has her entire village out on display (there are about 20 houses in total, and just this year she finally got a table specifically for it).

Happy holidays!

I've wanted to start a Christmas village, but haven't taken the plunge yet. Now, I'm wondering if I can get anything on sale right now! Before next Christmas, for sure.

It's beautiful.
