At the conclusion of 2016, I decided I would take pictures of my Christmas Tree, ornaments, and my Nativities. And maybe even revisit Christmases past . . .
|My tree in 2011. First Christmas in my new house. Pink bows.|
|Heart in Hand--Pennsylvania Dutch Saying|
|Snowman . . .missing a button, I see.|
I probably still have the tools I used to make all these things.
The "straw" of the broom was made by putting dough through a garlic press.
|I love this Santa's face.|
Yep, the beard went through the garlic press.
I enjoy decorating my mantel at Christmas every year. It's the perfect spot for my Willow Tree Nativity. I have the whole collection, including the doves and trees (which are discontinued). I'm not sure if there is another new piece this year. I bought the stockings at Michaels, and the lighted wreath at The Quilted Bear, when I bought my house in 2011.
