A little Christmas Decorating

I thought I would show you a little of my Christmas decorating before Christmas has come and gone.  First is my snowmen and village.  I have many more village pieces but decided to only do these 4 this year.  I have these in my kitchen.




I didn't do near as much decorating this year as I usually do.  Getting old and lazy I guess.

A lighted bouquet



The star on the tree was made from white pearl buttons and sent to me by a dear blog friend.


This is the Willow Tree Nativity I bought for myself last year when it was on sale.  I added a couple of angels, bottle brush trees, and an old drawer for the manger.



The next 2 are a couple of outdoor decorations covered with snow.



Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful week before Christmas!

Until next time,
Barb

Lovely decorations and your photos are just perfect. I love the church in the village - is that the Old North Church? The Nativity displayed in the drawer is a great idea. Fun for me to see the snow, too. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a Merry Christmas.

Barb! hi! nice decorations you have here. especially the snow-upon ones outside. those village scenes always get my heart but i've never owned one. i have a friend that has TONS of those and they even have special plywood shelves they place all around her home to display them. and... her birthday is on Christmas, too.

Everything looks great. You always have the greatest pictures. Love the lighted bouquet and will copy that. I have had some lighted sticks for two years and never knew what to do with them. The button star is copy worthy too.
Hugs and Merry Christmas.
