This year, as we decorated the house for the holidays we noticed that there was a bit more magic than normal. At first we thought it was the Magic Elf duo that has been having all sorts of Elf Capades in our home and with our holiday decorations. But then things started to go missing. It started with a spool of Christmas ribbon, and then a pack of stocking-shaped buttons, and I lost count of how many times I went to go get some tools or arts and crafts items from the junk drawer and couldn't find them.
It was clear we had a Christmas crafting thief.
And then it hit me that all the items that went missing were around 1/18 scale and I was pretty sure it was the Lundby family. One look into their home and I could tell the magic of the holidays had definitely come to the Lundby home. With a new mantle to decorate from our renovations this summer, I was thrilled to discover that a rustic antler piece worked perfectly on the stone work. The Happy Holidays banner that was supposed to decorate our Christmas card looked perfect on the mantle itself, and a small found gingerbread house rounded out the holiday hearth quite nicely. Of course the official Lundby tree looked amazing in our newly designed living space on the the lower addition, complete with lights and traditional candle decorations. In preparation of all the holiday merriment, the TV was replaced with a family Christmas canvas, and some furniture was rearranged. There were even strings of lights decorating the outside of the Lundby home.But the newly designed kitchen held a certain warmth that only comes when something truly magical is happening. Holiday baking had clearly already started. The Lundbys were definitely gearing up for a wonderful and merry holiday season.There were Christmas caroles to sing as the family decorated the house… There were presents to deliver to loved ones near and far… There were snowmen to build… There were treats to leave out for Santa and his reindeer… There were presents to open… Guess what she got for Christmas? That's right, her very own doll's house!
