Two Snowy Christmas Villages

I'm joining the following holiday editions of weekly parties:
Alphabe-Thursday over at Jenny Matlock This week's letter is "L"
"L" is for Let It Snow!

This is the story of two snowy Christmas villages.  I spent many a
Christmas in snow country before we moved to California, but now
I enjoy the snow as only a distant memory!

A tiny snow covered village that I've had since I was about five years old.
Some of these little houses appeared in my Toyland Tablescape

My children and then my grandchildren have played with these over the years
and now I am playing with them again. :-)

Today's vintage tablecloth pictures a snowy village somewhere
in this vast country. It could be most anywhere, but exists only
in my mind's eye here in Northern California.

This snowy village also features a church and the snow covered
streets leading to houses filled with holiday parties and
treasured moments with family and friends.

Is he not the cutest snowman?

Fiesta Holly and Ribbon dinner plates.

Merry Christmas to one and all from The Little Round Table!

  1. your tables are always amazingly gorgeous! and i love the wooden christmas village from your childhood, it is beautiful!

  2. I love this! That little wooden village is too cute! Oh and those plates and the entire place setting! Everything fits so well together and looks very festive! You put together such incredible tablescapes!

  3. I love the tiny wooden village, what a treasure for generations to play with and enjoy. And those Fiesta dishes are fabulous! I love your tablescapes, they are art!

  4. Cute setting! I'm lovin' your beautiful tablecloth! While we haven't had any accumulation yet, the snow was so fun to see flying around this morning:@)

  5. Holy my goodness.

    You did it again. I am inundated with tablescape envy.

    Love that little wooden village.

    Where in the heck do you store all this?

    If you are running out of room, I'd be happy to store a bunch of it here.


    Thanks for another glorious link to Alphabe-Thursday.


  6. Candy, your home decor is so festive, bright & inviting.

    Have a lovely winter's eve ~

  7. Hi Candy! Love the poinsettia table in the Rednesday post, but the village tablecloth is my fav!

  8. Hello Candy,
    and AGAIN a wonderful table. So cute. You are so creative and full of new ideas.
    Greetings, Johanna

  9. what a delightful Christmassy post!
    your miniature snowy villages are amazing little gems full of wonderful childhood memories :)

  10. I love all the houses you include and of course the church!

    Please stop by and check out my L post. It will be up tomorrow.

  11. That little wooden village is priceless! I just love that. The tablecloth and the Fiesta pattern is beautiful also. The vintage tablecloth would look fantastic on a great many tables.

  12. Love the tablescape...and the villages are so special! Happy Holidays!

  13. I love your little village. I wish I had one like that.

  14. I too grew up with that same wooden village. I also have one for the grandchildren. What delight they have in it. I love your table. The church is absolutely a dream.

  15. Mmmmm! Love the vintage tablecloth!!! That is really cool!!!

  16. Oh I absolutely LOVE your tablecloth and table setting. Beautiful! We used to have the little wooden houses with a wooden train set. I don't know whatever happened to them :-(


  17. Beautiful! I love your little village, I ahve never seen one like that! The tablecloth is gorgeous! I love the snowman napkin rings!!! GREAT table, Candy! XO, Pinky

  18. You have such lovely keepsakes!!

  19. Candy, beautiful table, per normal! :) I still can't get over your tablecloth collection, love this one. Beautiful keepsake wooden village too, Merry Christmas!

  20. Your snowy villages are so much fun. My grandmother had that same (or very similar) set at her house for us to play with as children, but sadly it was lost in the fire when their house burned. Thank you for sharing yours as I loved seeing it again. And I wish I could say snow is a distant memory, but it's been coming down here off and on for several days. Nothing is sticking, though.

  21. You always have the prettiest tables!!! I love the little village blocks. And the tablecloth is just gorgeous!!

  22. Thanks for coming by to visit my "snow" country!

    It's as close as I care to be to snow .... to many years of walking to school in it and then living in that part of the country with my kids. Being locked up inside with kids during Chicago winters is a thing that nightmares come from!LOL

    We're only a couple hours from Tahoe and snow country, but I only go to the mountains in the SUMMER!

    Hope to see you all agin soon,

  23. The Christmas villages are so adoreable. I have always loved them, and yours are the best I have ever seen. I always enjoy your blog.

  24. Wonderful -- from the village to the table. Jane

  25. Your little round table is always so fun and inviting. What wonderful hospitality you bring each week. Your little wooden Christmas village is precious.

  26. What a beautiful environment you have created!

    I'd love a cup of tea with all that lovely tableware!!!

  27. Good Morning, Candy!

    I don't think I fully appreciate your wooden village before. It's charming! Today's TC is one of my favorite, and your 'scape is FAB!

  28. The little wooden village is so cute!

  29. Your entire tabletop make me very merry and bright!

    Seasons greetings to you.

  30. What a beautiful table you have set. I love everything from the tablecloth to the silverware. And your kitchen is fabulous! Merry Christmas!

  31. Oh Candy these are precious. The only thing I have from when I was a child is my stuffed dog. The tablecloth is gorgous. I'd love to own it! Merry Christmas!~Ames

  32. Your table is truly, truly lovely, but your KITCHEN is breathtaking. Oh, my.
    So glad I stopped by; you helped me catch a deep and much-needed breath this afternoon!

  33. That little village is a treasure.


  34. Adorable! & I love (want! teehee!) your tablecloth!

    Happy VTT and Merry Christmas,

  35. Where did you ever get the flatware? It caught my eye right away. Your kitchen looks beautiful. Man do we ever have snow and ice around my house. Can't even get out to gather holly for decorating. Christmas blessings to you and yours.

  36. That tablecloth is incredible, I looove it. And your little village is lovely. Beautiful tablescape as always.!

  37. Thank you all for coming by to visit during this very busy last few days before the big day arrives! The flatware is readily available, I got mine at Home Goods. Name is treble clef flatware. :-)

    Happy Happy days to one and all,


Thank you for your lovely comments.
