After years of collecting the skiers and making my first loggie I was able to put together a ski village for after Christmas. I am hoping to add a new house next year with a skating pond.

I’ll just echo everyone’s comments on your ski village. What a nice way to feature a loggie and your tree arrangement is so authentic looking. Did you paint those ski figures?

Hi Laurie, I touched up one or 2. Always a dilemma do I paint/restore them or leave as is.

Lynn, I love your village! Great job on the loggie, and placement of the figures. It's charming! And is that a hoot owl in the tree over the loggie?

Love it! Barb
