The place to be!

This island in the library's parking lot so reminded me of a scene from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.   Narnia!

 The grand kiddies were skating at the library and Jolina and I snuck through 'Narnia' to get into another magical land- the library.

We had been making our own winter wonderland in art.

 I adapted a bag pattern to form house shapes from cereal boxes.

We then coloured all the buildings for a winter village.

 A chief architect and a village in the making!

 Josh made a skating rink for some of the little figures we have accumulated. God bless those dollar stores!

Joshua and his papa built a snowman.   Does this qualify as art???  Hopefully I'll get back to warmer art before the month is out.

BUT... then I might need to make a return trip to a magical land!

Narnia indeed -- right down to the lamp post! :-)

Love that wee village and how it's shaping up. Blessings for Christmas, elle!

I love this post and I do not even know of Narnia. Magical I do know and your little village complete with skating rink is perfect right from the Grands creating it to the loving GrammaElle who magically facilitates it all. Blessings and Bliss...
