Christmas at our House...

...i wanted to keep christmas decorating simple this year...
...and use what i already have...
...so i scrounged around my collections...
...and used 'naturals' outside which will last...
...ALL! WINTER! LONG!...
(sigh!)
...really...
...january is okay - it's a quiet month...
...a month of new beginnings...
...it's just that i would like to have one month of winter...
...then the rest of the year for the warmer stuff...

...enjoy the tour!

...this is what you see as you step up to our front entrance...
...this is dried limelight hydrangeas w/ rose hips tucked in a topiary...
...my collection of enamelware with pinecones, wood mushrooms and bittersweet...
 
...in the kitchen is the simplicity of creams and red...

...favorite manger scenes...
...i copied this scene from a friend years ago...
...the angel worshipping the baby with all the others standing to the side watching...  
...still love it!
...i liked this so well i kept it up all year but will put it away after the season is over...

...favorite cards and a few old postcards...
...this is really a music box i nabbed at a yard sale for twenty-five cents...
...placed them in a discarded clock frame that i painted and aged...

...day and night...





...may your Christmas be filled with life and serenity...
...and to not forget that...

- JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THIS SEASON!

....blessedness!

Lisa, they're flower frogs & picked them up @ garage sales.
