This morning we are in the middle of an ice storm. I tryed to get better pics but I was slipping everywhere but I think you can get the idea. I have a collection of Nativity sets but for the last couple of years I have only had this one out. I just don't have the room to put them all out so this year I have decided that when I put my Christmas stuff away I am going to put the Nativity sets out on the mantle for the winter...ya know it did take two years for the kings to get to Jesus so I think a few months on the mantle will be okay!!
I meant to fill this collection box with bottlebrush trees but when I didn't have enough I added the little santa collection that I found at a garage sale about 3 years ago. I think they are so cute and I can't believe that she was selling them for next to nothing. This is the window that hangs behind my sofa in the living room. My sister found three of them in a house she bought and generously gave me one of them. I try to hang something different each season but for now I have a large wreath with more vintage ornaments on it. It was difficult to get a close-up and still get the entire window. I have stocking stuffers that I need to pick up but I have been waiting until next week when I figure the prices will be at the lowest before venturing out to the mall. We are having my hubby's side of the family for Christmas (in our home) on Sunday so today I will have the girls sweep and dust and then I will get a few groceries. I am hoping all this ice is gone but after lunch...otherwise my plans will be moved to tomorrow. Enjoy your holiday weekend and safe travel. Until then be blessed.
