It's REDnesday!

Today is Wednesday and that means it's REDnesday over at Sue's "It's A Very Cherry World." If you love the colour red and you would like to participate, then please go see Sue at
Christmas is a-comin' and I'm starting to decorate for the holidays. I am putting my Christmas village out all along the ledge in the family room. One of my favourite pieces is the ceramic farm I made for my father. He always loved farms, particularly red barns! I guess that's why I love 'em too. When Daddy passed away, my mother gave the farm back to me so I have incorporated it into the village.
I made the farm house with its red trimmed windows, the barn and silo, and the mill. I also made the trees. I cannot help but think about my father whenever I bring them out every year. Actually Christmas makes me miss him alot because he was the one who made Christmas so magical in the home when I was growing up.
The red barn with its silo. The silo got a little nick in it during one of the moves. I will have to touch that up.
The farm house has a porch and curtains in the red- trimmed windows.
The old mill.
