Christmas villiage on the move! Empty

Many years ago I had painted, one by one a mini christmas villiage. (lighted) It was so adorable. I set it up with a train running round it and everyone loved it...including me.
Well.... I lost that in the house fire we had in 2001..
It has taken me this many years to consider another one, so this past spring I ordered several houses..unpainted. Now, my intention was to paint one every once in a while so that it would be done by this Christmas. BUT..that didn't happen.

Since last week was my UFO week (and seems to be continuing into this week) I pretty much felt free'd up enough to start painting on the houses. Soo I started one on Saturday ..and finished that one and a second one on Sunday. They are adorable. I've got about 5 more to go, and I don't know that I'll get them all done by this Christmas..but I might! I don't have a train set to run round them yet, but that will come with time.

My thinking is..as long as I have it all complete and running by the time my grandkids are old enough to marvel at it,...I'm good to go! (and I can't wait to take pictures of that!)

I got two of them finished....but haven't really had a chance to go back in and work on anymore since then. I took this week to get things ready for my NY trip, so maybe I'll get a chance to go work on a few more next week. And trust me..I WILL post pics on the blog as soon as I get them done!
