Look!!! All around you -Fake water...A river...covered bridge and that white frozen water...called snow?!!!

I'll be away from the computer for most of Thursday, so I'm also going to 'tie-in' this Watery, Winter Wonderland, for my Thursday ThemeSong meme post this one time....

Lyrics I chose are:


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white----














The Village of "Hearth", Texas....
[Bud displayed it all on the fireplace hearth this year]

Mansion - Icicle Lights above the village
North Pole Post Office - 2nd mansion
Snowflake lights in the snow - Blue and White

  2. For twenty years, I grew up in hot tropical Borneo, I dreamed and sang this song.

    Then I went to Canada and had my first freezing white Christmas.

  13. I know you hate the stuff, but it sure looks cute in your decorations! We've been having springtime in December up here in Northern Colorado - not a drop of moisture in the foothills. But thankfully lots of the white stuff in the mountains for the skiiers, snowboarders, etc. And for our reservoirs this summer!

  18. Your Christmas village is lovely and so much fun! But in the real world, I'm not much of a fan of snow. Don't think I'd ever be dreaming of a white Christmas. (But I like the song!)

    Have a great Wednesday!

  21. Lesley Trust me!--------for me, I'd much prefer the 'fake'. Don't like scooping in, don't like driving in it...especially don't like the other idiots trying to drive in it in the lane next to me!!

  32. Oi, Anni!
    Sua aldeia de Natal é encantadora, faz a gente sonhar como se estivéssemos também em miniatura... Ela lembra nossos presépios... Linda música para embalar nossos sonhos!
    Beijinhos.
