My Dollarville village has been set up in many different ways over the years. The majority of the little houses came from dollar stores, thrift stores, and chain stores, hence the name.
At the beginning it was set up on the mantle,
then on the china hutch,
on a table as a big village, or set out on various tables and flat locations around the house. As it got bigger it needed a different location.
The old wooden ladder became a location that could hold all of the village at once and it has been in various locations in the house.
Over the years it has grown into a big collection. I just hope the government doesn’t find out I own this many properties or they will be charging me taxes, taxes, and more taxes!
This year the ladder got a coat of white paint and I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. No new little houses have been added for a year or two as they are getting harder and harder to find.
From all our houses to your house we wish you a very, happy and safe holiday season with family and friends.
I appreciate all the visits and comments you have made to my website over the years. I hope you will continue to visit even though the posts will be slowing down as we head into the cold winter months.
Perhaps you say … Merry Christmas … Mele Kalikimaka … Feliz Navidad … Joyeux Noel …Kung His Hsin Nien bing Chu Shen Tan … Buone Feste Natalizie … Happy Christmas … Boas Festas …Kala Christouyenna … Happy Holidays … Seasons Greetings … Happy Hanukkah … Happy Kwanzza … Glædelig Jul … Buon Natale … Nadolaig Llawen … or other forms of greetings.
Perhaps you are politically correct and perhaps you aren’t. Perhaps you are religious and perhaps you aren’t. In this day and age we have to be so careful of what we say and who we say it too.
It all translates into the same thing … enjoy your time with family and friends as you celebrate the season.
Hoping you can take a little time for yourself at this hectic time of the year. Relax in a bubble bath, read a book, plan your garden, enjoy a soothing cup of tea, get craf-tea, curl up by the fire, or snuggle with a loved one.
Have a safe, happy and memorable holiday season.
What a fun collection!
I was trying to see if you have any tea shops/rooms or fire stations in your village…
I do have a coffee shop, 3 bakeries and even a fire hall with a fire engine. But alas, no tea shops. That will give me something to hunt for. Enjoy this rainy Saturday.
Linda, you do have a great village collection
I love visiting your site, you make it so interesting.
Wishing you hubby and family a very merry Christmas and happy holiday.
