Christmas Church

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!

I love the little church, Judy ... and the way you displayed it is perfect.

Best wishes to you for safe travels and a very happy and memorable Christmas with your family.

That is just a beautiful little white church, Judy. I love the way you ended up displaying it.

I hope you have a wonderful time at both kids' houses. We are spending Christmas Day at my daughter's house, too. I am taking Christmas dinner over the day before so we can just reheat and call it good!

Merry, Merry Christmas to you and your family~ xo Diana

Your mother's church is very pretty in the vignette. I'm sure it pleases her that you made a special place for it. Have safe travels and enjoy Christmas with your family!!
