An Homage






My mom gave me this little Halloween village several years ago and every October I am tickled as I set it up on my fireplace mantel ... and then enjoy its warm, welcoming and playful glow in these evenings of the thinning veils.

Thank D - the lights are so subtle and just charming in the evening,

Mother's - yeah ... I tend to extend the season and leave it up a bit after the holiday!

I don't know, it looks a bit scary to me! But the fact it's lighted up makes it cozy and cheerful, too...I love soft glows of light at nighttime...

What a fantastic village. Moms can sometimes just find that perfect gift.

I'm so glad you're all enjoying this sweet little village - scary or not!

That is so awesome. My mom got me a Christmas village years ago and putting it up is one of my favorite parts of the season. I had never seen a Halloween village. But now that I know they exist? I will hunt one down. I want it!

Best wishes on your hunt Vixen. I've not seen one since, but then again - I'm not really much of a shopper. BTW, My mom also got me the Dickens Village for my Yule set up. So charming. :)
