One reason I have so many boxes is because I collect Christmas village pieces.
The people, the houses, all the little tiny details, I just adore it all. Really to me it is art. All decorating is art so I think I am going to self proclaim myself a Christmas decorating artist the next time someone gives me a hard time about it.
Every year my husband points out how all the people are on completely different scales and that some are 3 xs as large as others. He is completely right! Every year after that he lets me know how much space this all takes up, and every year when I remind him how much I love it he says he is going to start buying me a new set to start over. Soon to be 8 years of marriage later I have yet to see one single village piece from him. I think maybe he just can’t bring himself to buy it, and so my old pieces stay.
It is an easy way to bring my barn obsession indoors :-)
Children making snow angels. Horse drawn carriages. And it is always a white Christmas for these guys!
My husband puts up with (secretly loves!) my Christmas decor and in exchange I make him Nanaimo bars. Pretty fair deal don’t ya think? ;-) Love is a powerful thing!
What about you? Do you collect anything or is that a beast you’d rather stay away from?
