If you’ve been following my blog lately, you know I did very little Christmas decorating this year. But while digging through a box full of stuff in my “storage room” I found a little lighted church that belongs to my mom. My son and DIL had given her this church one year for Christmas and she always kept it in her china cabinet. When we moved her to assisted living 2 years ago, she wanted me to have it. I really wanted to use it somehow so I put together a little vignette in our bedroom.
I sprinkled “snow” on a silver tray and put the church on a stack of covered paperback books. I also added the little trees I got at Wal Mart. (See the frame on the wall behind the vignette, I still haven’t got around to filling it with our personal pictures, can anyone out there relate?)
I got the book covers from Olive Rue’s etsy page here. She has some wonderful downloads
I picked up this old timey Santa at Wal Mart the other day….in fact I got two!
Tomorrow I’ve got to finish up my shopping and wrapping. We’ll be staying in on Christmas Eve, then visiting daughter and her family Christmas Day. On the 26th we’ll head to Birmingham for Christmas with son and his family.
I don’t know if I’ll post again this week so if I don’t here’s wishing you and yours a very blessed holiday and Merry Christmas!
