Christmas decorations.



Nope, I haven't lost my marbles. I'd taken these pictures before I got ill, and I'd like to share them with you. The top photo shows Matthew and I decorating our tree. It was Matthew's idea to come and help decorate. We did this on Dec 6th, and then we went out for dinner later with my parents, at a local Greek restaurant, to celebrate St. Nicholas Day. No, we are not Greek; we are Dutch.

This is my miniature village on top of the piano. Click all pictures to enlarge.
This is my newest piece. Isn't it just adorable? I bought a toy shop on sale later in the year; I don't have a photo of it.
Robert bought the woman, dog, and man holding flowers for me one year.
After Matthew had finished decorating, the next day I found a very sad sight in my village.

I love your village Loretta -- and enjoy all your photos. Tell Matthew I think he has a great sense of humour! lol

That Matthew is always thinking of ways to get your attention...LOL The village looks great on the piano! I really like the tree by the lady in front of the flower shop. I don't think I have ever seen one like that.

Oh yes, I have sons too. That looks like something they might have done. Enjoyed seeing your village.
