Happy Holidays!

Hooray, my Christmas display is finally finished! I’m so happy I got it done before Christmas….lol

This year’s display is much much smaller compared to last year’s, but I’ve packed the inside with lots of fun things!

 

Let’s open the glass door…

It’s a scene of a Christmas gift shop! I have some of the items I’ve received as gifts from my friends incorporated in this scene, too.  I wonder how many of you hard core readers of this blog can spot them. :p

Alright, let’s have the shoppers wait outside for a minute, and I’ll show you around…

This is the view from the side.  I hope it looks exciting enough that you’d want to walk in and take a look. 🙂

“Welcome!”  I made this gray wooden counter using balsa wood.

I’ve repainted an old SF shelf into Christmas design.   I’ve used some store bought items for this display, like the white deer, red robin, teddy bear (I added his scarf), and jams from SF miniatures.

After giving out the last snow dome, I decided to make another to keep, and put on the counter.  This time, I added a sled and a wreath on the cottage door.

This is a cookie mix jar I made with my son.  We used real cookie ingredients from our pantry. (Luckily, SLC is ridiculously dry all year around, so we don’t have to worry about mold etc.  If you’re trying this out, I recommend sticking in a few silica gel balls inside.)

This is another part I like about this scene.  I made miniature paper bags out of washi tapes.

Okay, so did you spot any of the creations by my friends?

This flower pot was given to me by Yuuzu a couple years ago.

These balls of yarn are from Okenoruk.

I boxed some of the Chocolates from Soramama.

And a Christmas plate from Matsuko.

I’m pretty happy with  this display, although I won’t have very much time to display it in my house this year.  Let’s hope it’s still intact next Christmas!

Oh, and I’m going to be doing some constructions on this site during the Christmas break, so I think I will take a bit of a break from posting as well.  My plan is to be back with a new article early January.

Happy Holidays, everyone! See you soon!
