This year we had to keep our Village up and well there is not a lot of room.  Lots of bodies, little house. 

So I took over a couple shelves.  After I set it all up, hubby said I should make it snow.  This is what I came up with for the end result.







I used fishing line with poly fill taped to it for the falling snow.  I had to cut down on the buildings but it is nice to have the village out...

Wow, that really adds to the display.  It definitely works!  I never got into villages because of the space issue, but the idea of having them on a shelf with the wall backdrop is something I'll have to consider.  So cute.

I stay with the small village houses.  I like the lights in the big ones but they take too much space.  With the little homes I can fit my village in a small area most years. 

Plus after Christmas I can add things to my collection for less then a buck.  I have had problems finding trees for my village, most the ones I find are way too big for the scale of my buildings.  However Martha showed this great way to make your own this year and I may try it out.

Next year I am going to play with adding lights to the homes and to the backdrop.  I will ponder the ideas over the next year....
