Like for example, the little drawing of Santa and his reindeer under all the snow on the roof of the little blue cottage.
I was never looking for a Christmas village at all, but when I saw 5 pieces of it at HUDSON'S in McComb years ago, I wigged out, because it has tons of snowmen on it and I was at the height of my snowman collecting phase (From which I have now thankfully recovered). I immediately made my Mom buy it for me because they didn't take credit cards back then and I NEVER carry cash. Don't worry, I paid her back. We keep track of our receipts pretty well.
A year or two later, I found the matching red Chalet in T.J. Maxx.
I THINK there is one yellow piece I am missing, but I have never been able to find any information about any of the pieces on-line. And y'all know how I am about not having completed sets of things. I even emailed the company once (Russ), and their response was "hmm...looks like one of our retired lines". Uh, thanks. That is surprisingly UNHELPFUL.
This Christmas I was feeling particularly artsy so I bleached, dyed, and decorated a bunch of Christmas trees for the village. That was SUPER FUN and I'll tell y'all how I did that soon. I LOVE how they turned out, even though my fingers ended up being blue and green for about a week.
So...yeah. If you know anything about this village or how I can get more info on it, I would LOVE that. If you want to just go ahead and mail me the yellow one I (may be) missing, feel free :) In the meantime, I'm having fun sketching them and then packing them away for another year.
