The Christmas village is growing

A few years ago I mentioned we had 'accidentally' begun a new miniature hobby. As this one is seasonal it's a slow burner but our Christmas village is growing little by little, year by year.

We still go to a garden centre for the annual post-festive sales and pick up some half price bargains. Amazingly, this year I escaped having only spent £3. This little horse and carriage fitted our specification of 'nothing too big' as storing the village from January to November is a bit of a challenge.

The village sits just in front of our TV, largely because it's an empty surface but the fact it's white means it adds to the snowy feel.

As you can see, it's still a manageable size - for the moment...

We were hoping to pick up a 'firework display' my dad had seen online but unfortunately we couldn't find one. The film below is something to aim for next year!
