I just thought I was finished. Lucy's Chocolate Shop arrived in the mail the other day and has joined the other lighted houses in my tiny Christmas village. As you may have read in THIS POST, I only buy pieces that "speak" to me. This piece definitely spoke to me, since Lucy is the name of my 10-month-old granddaughter.
The Chocolate Shop fits in perfectly with Walker's Department Store, Claire's Card Shop, Newport School, the Camden General Store and the Beaumont Inn.
Here's a view from another angle.
I thought the Chocolate Shop would be the only addition to my village this year, but shortly after I uploaded my previous post I received an email from my friend Becky. It contained a link to a website with the instructions to check it out. And there I found what no self-respecting Arkansas Razorback fan could possibly be without—The Hog Penny Pub. Of course, I just had to have it.
So the next time you're in the area, stop by Lucy's Chocolate Shop for a free sample, and then head over to the Hog Penny Pub for a Hog Burger and beer. It's conveniently located next door to the Beaumont Inn.
