But you have not seen her village yet. This is Marge's "St Petersburg" - that is what she calls her village. It is arranged, for Christmas, on special stands she built across the fireplace, and honestly, the photos do NOT do it justice. I walked in last night and the lights were on and it was magical. Stunning. So I have tried to take a few photos of it close up for you to see. Have I mentioned that my little sister is enormously creative and unbelievably talented? You may be hearing that quite often in the next 2 weeks....
So you have started to see her beautiful home. I say started, because here, it carries on, through the house. The bedrooms are decorated, as are the bathrooms and kitchens. The hallways, ....everywhere. And then you look out of any of the windows and all you see is snow and mountains. Magical. Perfect. Today it is a little foggy, but I do not care. I am in the Alps, and I am with Marge, Peter and Mum.
Excuse me now, while I go to find the snow boots and the Leki sticks. I am off to breathe in the alpine air.
PS....... Can I just say here that the tree is her Memory tree. The Christmas tree has not been put up yet! There will be loads more photos coming, believe me!
