32. A Dickens Mantel

Many years ago, D’s sister gave him a facsimile copy of Charles Dickens’ original A Christmas Carol. Each year since then, D has read the story to me at Christmastime.

Also many years ago, I made this little Dickens village. This Christmas, it’s the mantel decoration. A piece of sparkly black net makes stars or snowflakes in the night sky.

If you have eagle eyes, you will see “Scrooge and Marley’s”, “Candlemaker”, “Butcher”, and “Crachit.”

There is the butcher with the turkey, Scrooge with Tiny Tim (with his crutch), a couple of boys having a snowball fight, and carollers. Missing from the scene are all the ghosts.

I’m linking to these lovely party hosts:

Kathe With an E, Rooted in Thyme, Home Sweet Home, Stuff and Nonsense, At the Picket Fence, A Little Knick Knack, The Thrifty Groove, My Romantic Home, Cedar Hill Ranch, Alderberry Hill, Embracing Change, Made in a Day,

  1. Well, not from scratch. The village was available as bisque-ware, and I painted and decorated it.

  2. There is nothing more wonderful than A Christmas Carol. I love your Dickens Village!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!
