Ho, ho, ho...

I had a conversation with my husband the other day, that went something like this...
Me: "I remember, when I was little I went to a friends house and her family had an entire Santa village set up in their family room, it was magical."
Race: "Well, if I know anything about you, it's that you will find a way to create your own....probably using spray paint"...
The man's a genius, what can I say, because the next day I came across these in the dollar store:
Let's hope Santa brings me a new camera this year...ugh..
 Not really my cup of tea, but after I worked my magic (or Rustoleum did), I had this:
I sprayed them gold and white and stuck them in a couple of hurricanes, I had lying around...ya know, like ya do...
I love the "snow," which is laundry detergent for anyone interested...Tide to be exact...
The whole project cost me a whopping $5, and took a whole 10 minutes.
What do you guys think?  Magical? They kind of remind of my own little snowglobe collection...although if anyone comes over and shakes these, I'll probably hit them in the face....ahh, there is nothing quite like the holiday spirit.
I'm off to spread more cheer like that.


  1. Soo pretty! Actually looks like it does outside today in my parts :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Lacey! My parts too, only it's not so pretty anymore :)

  2. I didn't get to put out my Christmas village this year, but this sure is a great alternative for starting out! Love the idea of putting them large hurricane lanterns with "snow."

    1. Thanks, Beth! yes I think they could be really pretty in a really large one with maybe some trees too!

  3. I love the Christmas village, they look so festive. It's also great to see some blogs not deserted. I deserted mine for awhile and now came back with a holiday page of Christmas coupon offers. I will make a new page every month and circulate around the blog community during the month. It's good to be back. Following you now.
    Have a great holiday, and thank you for letting me visit.

    1. Thanks Susan! Heading to your blog now :)


Nothing makes me happier than seeing your lovely comments...except maybe wine...yeah wine makes me happier...but still I love your comments :)
