My mom knows how much of a Christmas lover I am so she bought me an entire miniature Christmas village that has lights on the inside of each building a couple of months ago. I have a house, a firehouse, a church, a school house, a city hall, a bakery, a toy store and a candy shop. I'm going to set the entire thing up at her house in December complete with fake snow underneath!
I usually get a new ornament every year, if I see one I like. I have to get some new lights for outside I think too. So much great stuff comes out every year, you cant help it. I don't like to clutter either. While I have a ton of stuff and love getting new stuff, I like to keep it "classy" still. Just where its not looking thrown together all over the place and thought is put into eveyrthing if that makes sense.
