Terrific haul - love the wreath, great idea. I'll be able to join in with the mini Christmas next year, am restraining myself this year 'cos Willow's living in a building site. Might not manage to hold out if I get the chance to go into town

...HERE'S A BIT TO WET YOUR WHISTLE.....think the snow is too thick in places so needs thinning out....................spray would probably look better...and add some silver glue glitter here and there...it shows up great when the light hits it..........also,Hobbycraft sell black sparkle paper that looks like stars in the sky when lit up.....nice to put behind a windoe for a bit of realism.....HAPPY SHOPPPING!

So for less than the price of 2 macdonald meals (10...)you can set the mini folk up for a celebration.....right up PAULA'S and AMANDA's street no doubt..

have just pulled out the BARN and other JENNY WREN.........PLAYTIME....
