Little Houses...made of ticky tacky

Finally set up my little village houses
maybe made of ticky in that fun "Weeds" theme song.
I painted each and every one of them, which makes me proud
since I'm not a very crafty person.
I usually add a new figurine each year, but this year
I added the little trees tipped with snow.
Gas Station and Church
Book Store (whew-look at that orange, maybe
I ran out of other colors).
City Hall
couple of homes
and the Railroad Station
Wishing all of you and your families
a warm, wonderful, peaceful Christmas!
Maybe even a white one! 
Thanks so much for your visits this year.

  1. Awww! I think your houses are so special! I'd love to have a bunch that I had painted myself! Great Job, and Happy Holidays to you!
    Erica :)

  2. Isn't there something sweet about a little row of houses, painted and/or glittered, with a few bottle brush trees thrown in, that seems to say Christmas??!!

    A very Merry Christmas to you!!!

  3. Very sweet. Love the add'n of the trees.

  4. I just love your Christmas village, especially the Railroad Station. Also liked the snowed-in tractor. But what is ticky tacky?
    Merry Christmas,

    1. "Little Boxes" is a song written by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963.

      The song is a political satire about the development of suburbia and associated conformist middle-class attitudes. It refers to suburban tract housing as "little boxes" of different colors "all made out of ticky-tacky", and which "all look just the same." "Ticky-tacky" is a reference to the shoddy material used in the construction of housing of that time.

      This is from Wikipedia.

  5. I love the villages, always wanted the Dickens Village but could not afford it. I think mine is a Walmart one circa 1990! How wonderful you painted yours.
    Merry Christmas!

  6. How fun! I love Christmas villages! Thank you for sharing this with us at TTF. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  7. Love your houses Pam! Great job on the painting. Just curious, what is ticky tacky? Never heard of it. The snow covered tractor is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing with Share Your Cup. Have a wonderful Christmas!
