I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday and Susan at Thoughts from Over the Rainbow for the Tuesday Deck the Halls Party. Thank you Mary and Susan for giving us links to great posts all over Blogville.

The intended use for the room I am sharing today is a formal dining room. We are much more comfortable serving family and guests in our family room, so our dining room is used as a study/music room/library! Yep! I've packed a lot into one room, and yep, it is wall-to-wall "stuff".

I have always felt that, since Christmas decor is only up for a short time, it doesn't matter how tacky I get with my decor! That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it (the implication is that normally my decor is not tacky, but a lot of people might disagree with that implication)!

I have been collecting village pieces since we got married 40 years ago. Being the bargain hunter, I have never paid full price for any piece in my village. I buy them at "after Christmas" sales, estate sales, and garage sales. It doesn't matter to me that all of my pieces are not one type, or that they are not all even the same brand. The way I see it, towns are made up of a lot of different styles of houses, stores, etc. I'm probably just justifying having so many different styles in my village, but again, that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

You may need to get your sun glasses before you enter this next area of the village!

Don't forget to go to Little Red House on Monday for mosaic links and to Thoughts from Over the Rainbow on Tuesday for Deck the Halls links.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. The villagers were so glad to have you visit. laurie
