Mini Vintage Winter Wonderland


On one of our little thrift shop outings a few weeks ago, Toby spotted a little bag full of miniature "vintagey" trees and people.

Of course, he just HAD to have it.....and really....call me a pushover, but sometimes it's just not worth the battle.

Especially when said baggie full of miniature treasures is a mere $0.25!



So......with a little help from my trusty glue gun, I set up a little winter wonderland....

And both of my boys love it!

Even more surprising is the fact that's it's still intact after a whole week or so!









ps....I went a little crazy with picnik :) Just couldn't resist a little "snow".




I don't know about you, but I love little miniature villages and winter "scenes".

Something kind of magical and nostalgic about them.

Despite their tacky vibe.








Anyways.....just a little peek at Toby's "little people", as he calls them :)

My mom just got back from 6 weeks in Ireland, and the boys (and me) are so excited to have her back!
She was so kind today as to look after them this morning while I did some Christmas shopping...SOLO!

I honestly don't know how to shop alone anymore. I'm constantly looking around for the stroller and taking the route that doesn't pass the play area (because once they spot it, that's game over for any shopping). Ridiculous.:)

  5. CUTE!!!!! I love the fact that your kiddos wanted to buy them and make a little village! They did such a great job setting it all up - and the price doesn't get much better than that! lol!
