This was inspired by the park near my parents' house-- there's a chalet open there in the winter, and they have an ice-skating pond, cross-country ski trails, a sledding hill, and a toboggan run. Originally I wanted to make the toboggan run, but it would have been structurally unsound. Since I'm from Michigan, outdoor sports are practically a lifestyle... we even have people there who like snow!
So, my winter chalet!
The entire scene
Just the chalet... with a sledding hill off to the left
Inside... a big fireplace, recycled wagon wheel light, hot chocolate, and a seating area where you can watch the sledders!
And, the horses' stable with a holly and ivy strand. There's a saddle over the fence and two buckets: one for grain, one for water

(Sorry, I haven't been able to get good clear pictures lately... not sure if it's my camera or what. It's even sunny today!)
