Dollarville Village

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,

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.

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.
