For my vintage vignette this week, I wanted to show you the Christmas village with the bottlebrush trees that was always on my Grandmother's mantel at Christmas time.
She always had this little round mirror to simulate a pond for the deer to have a drink. At a young age I was concerned that the deer were much too large for the houses. I was told that they were in front; and things close to you always appear larger. Thus, my first lesson in perspective!!!
Each building as a hole in the back to put a light through. Some of the bottlebrush trees have had a bit too much loving over the years. Grandma always let me play with the village and move things around. I've set this scene up on a low chest, so that my grandchildren have access to it, also.
See the Christmas decorations in the tiny windows.
The deer are made of celluloid.
Lots of fluffy snow this year.
