A Little Dickens' Village

We are counting the days now until the winter solstice arrives and the days begin to get longer again. We are lucky to live in a mild winter climate, but nightfall comes so early.

But a small candle glow warms even the greyest morning. (I'm still passively searching for my lighted garland to lay over the mantel.)

I probably never would have gotten to unpacking the Dickens' Village this year. But it is a favorite of the children and my eager spouse who set it all up.

And a couple of nests were added to the twiggy tree to round out the ambience.


I hope you are also enjoying a few quiet moments in this busy season!

Best Christmas Wishes!



  1. Looks very pretty and serene there Jacqueline.

  2. I love the nests -- I have some too and they seem so right for winter, a reminder that soon enough (I hope) they will be filled with eggs!

    I suspect your garland is somewhere near all the batteries I bought for my fairy lights and in an "easy to find" place that I have yet to find!

    It's all so lovely!

  3. Beautiful serene and peaceful Jacqueline. Love your twig tree with the nests. Just fabulous.
    Enjoy getting ready for the big day!

  4. I love the Dickens Village set. I bought lots of buildings for my Mom. She never bothered to get them out at Christmas so I built a special shelving unit for her to display and enjoy them year round. She can rearrange them for different looks.

  5. I love your twiggy tree with the nests!

  6. Hi Jacqueline! Your home is always so soft and cozy. LOVE the birds' nests. Pat @ Bringing French Country Home
