41st. Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 41st. Table Top Tuesday.  I am thrilled that you've joined us and can't wait to see all of your creativity.

My little village is very special to me.  My grandchildren picked it out when they were small.  I havn't put it up for a few years, but now with a Great-grandson, I thought it was time.

The Church and Bakers, with carolers, and ice skating on the pond.

The Butchers, and even Santa in front of the Candy Shop.

Children sleding down the hill of snow and they've even made a Snowman.

  You see all of their little houses in the background, and shoppers are heading out to buy presents.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visits.

  2. I have such fond memories of helping my Mama put up her village. She hasn't done it in years, but I remember I could stare at it for hours after it was finished. I love yours and all the details. Thanks for sharing, Barb

  3. We haven't put up our village for years now, Marty, but I've been thinking of doing it for my hubby this year. He was the one who was always really into it and I'll bet he'd like it. Thanks for hosting!

  9. I think all little kids are into villages. My son would rather have the village than the christmas tree. It's very special that your Grandkids helped you with yours. I know your Great Grandson will enjoy it just as much.

  16. That's so cute. How I wish I can see my great grandkids and play with the memorable toys they get from their parents (my kids). Can't wait the moment.

    Very pretty, Lady?

    Hope everything's fine over the BIG apple.

    Be Blessed...

  20. Hi Marty! I love your little Christmas village. My Mom has one too and I look forward to seeing it every year. We all love those traditions and now that you have another member of your family, it is even more important to carry those traditions on. Something happened with Mr Linky. I liked up but my post is supposed to be "Santa Baby" (link #18) and not "We Need a Little Christmas" (link # 17). I don't know what happened and it's never happened before. Can you delete the first link up because I cannot. Thanks!!

    Love,
    Susan and Bentley

  32. Really like your village. I almost started one several years ago, but don't have the space.
    Had planned to join in this week, but it has been dreary and rain today, so could not get decent pictures. Hopefully next week.
    Thanks for hosting.
    Have a great week.

  44. I like all your houses and especially all of your accessories and villagers. I only started collecting houses last year- found them in thrift stores and antique malls. But I guess I'll have to find the accessories at a regular store- I've never seen them when thrifting. I have got to get mine set up soon. I am really slow this year. Thanks for hosting TT again. I hope you don't mind that I posted my mantel- it is the "top" of the hearth, I suppose! LOL hugs, Sue

  47. Great display. I used to have a village when we were in Germany, called Lighthouses as in lighting because you would put tea candles inside them and the houses would shine through the open windows and doors. Don't miss todays give-a-way
