Christmas Village, PIY (Paint it Yourself)

Over at the Newly Woodwards last week Kim shared her love of the Dept. 56 Christmas village houses...so cute! That inspired me to share a few of the little houses that have been collecting at our house...well first my parents' house (I've been painting them for...well....a while ;-). I started in high school, adding a few each year...there is a village the size of a major metropolis at their house now...so in an effort to downsize to a manageable size city they gave a few of them to me. These are the little unpainted plaster houses/buildings you can get at Michael's, Wal-Mart, wherever. I'm not a good instruction follower either....so none of my houses look anything like the package specifically says to paint them. I know, I'm such a rebel. ;-) They're cute though....and special to me, as most are labeled with the year I painted them....brings back memories each time we pull them out.


  1. wow! These are so pretty. I love how you painted them. I'm totally impressed! =)

  2. Where can I order plaster houses like these?


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
