Decorating for Christmas
I had just a few days to get ready for Christmas before people starting arriving so I decorated…
One of my favorite nativities is this antique nativity set I found years ago. Supposedly, it was in the window of Macy’s in San Francisco for years and years… but I have no proof of that, but we love it anyway. It was in very “rough” shape when I bought it, i.e. broken and glued etc. But we love it anyway.
New decorations this year included two antique Santa faces that I tied to wreaths and placed on the back doors.
My new Christmas tree this year was a nativity tree, I have a collection of antique postcards, so these were put on a small tree with gold glitter stars and lights. It was quite pretty. Next year I think I will do a little bit bigger tree since I wasn’t able to use all the postcards.
I found these wonderful vases this year. They have numerous sizes and dimensions…all with liners. They are on-line at http://www.stemsvases.com/. I ordered them and gave them as Christmas gifts (with flowers). They were a hit!
When Becca and Henry arrived I had little trees for each of them to decorate.
