Gentrification of the Christmas Village

xmas_villageIf there is one cheesy Christmas tradition I indulge in, it’s the Christmas Village.  It started when Bryan and I got together with a lighthouse from Walgreens and an over-sized church from his mom.  Each year there’s at least one new piece that gets added.  They’re not perfect – knock-offs purchased for no more than $10 a piece.  Until this year…

Yep, the hipsters have moved into Christmas Village.  Since property values were so low (i.e., there was a sale at KMart) the new tap house came at a great price.  It’s between the vintage diner that was rescued and relocated from Hocking Hills and the church.  There’s also a lot down the street that was cleared recently (two out-of-scale carnival games were removed) that may potentially be the new location of a performing arts center.  It’s a Christmas tree lot for the time being (those were on sale, too).  Pretty soon empty packs of American Spirit cigarettes will litter the streets – it will be a beautiful thing.

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.
