Beautiful Christmas Projects

Oh, Come Let us Adore Him
Christ the Lord!
I wanted to share a few of my current Christmas decorating projects. We all have our favorite decorations, some old and some new. Below is one of my favorites. It's a simple manager scene we put out every year.

The pieces are very small and scene usually goes unnoticed in the room.
Not too long ago, I found the above items on sale at one of my local stores. I loved the shapes and different sizes, but hesitated on buying  because I had no idea what I was going to do with them.
So, I bought them anyway.
Then it hit me, these are perfect for Christmas decorations!

I filled  the stand with a little natural excelsior for hay.

A perfect setting for a manger.

With some ribbon,  French lace and two large angel candles on each side...

The Manager Scene does not go unnoticed any longer.
A beautiful way to display the greatest Christmas gift of all time.

The next project was very simple.
I placed one of my vintage bottle brush trees inside the round glass container and it looked like this.

Simply beautiful in my kitchen window.

Then I thought I would try something else. Why leave well enough alone?

I added a vintage choir boys figurine.

I think I will keep the choir boys, I can almost hear them singing,
 "Hark the Herald Angels Sing,
Glory to the New Born King!"
Merry Christmas.
