Day Two

Day Two is all about my Christmas Village. I am happy to report no extra supplies were bought to create this page, and I managed to do it in one day!

In my CLOSET OF NO RETURN, I have a box labelled Dec. 1. It contains the deocorations I put up early in the month - the advent calendar(s), Christmas card holder, and my Christmas village that I always put on the fireplace mantle.

Until this year. This year Gracie, one of our very naughty cats has taken to jumping onto the fireplace mantle. I can just envision her doing this when my village is assembled, and my little houses and trees falling onto the fireplace below, bursting into flames and causing unimaginable disaster.
So I have moved to Plan B, which is assemble the village on a small table in the den. This was not without it's problems either. I caught Gracie chewing on a tree, and William (her accomplice) with his paws under the tablecloth, searching for I don't know what. Hopefully my village survives the season!

Last night I finally figured out how to print pictures with my printer! However, I'm not really happy with the colour saturation or clarity, so I probably am going to have them professionally done, unless I discover a MAGIC BUTTON that says "Press here for really great photo printing".
Until we meet again...


  1. I don't know what I love more...the Day 2 page, the kitty on the mantle, or that beautiful village. It's all wonderful.

  2. Your village is gorgeous!! Love how your accents reinforce the topic of day two!

  3. I'm surprised that Gracie can get up there. Her name is usually misnomer of her general characteristics!
