“In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David.
And the virgin’s name was Mary”
I just love the Christmas season!! I have so enjoyed sharing with you, our new friends, the treasured collections that we have assembled over forty one years of marriage! If you haven’t already, you will soon see that most things I decorate with has a story behind it-whether it be hand-painted, hand-made, or given to me by someone very dear! I have had so many sweet comments about the lovely things that my Mother made and I have more to share today.
On the chest in my foyer is a ceramic church that Mother made. Each year as I unwrap it, my eyes fill with tears and my mind is flooded with beautiful memories of her! I rejoice that I have a treasure trove of her hand-made things that I will pass on to Seth and Allison!
I have a few figurines that I have purchased to use in my Victorian setting!
I love the light through the stained glass windows-so realistic!
I know that my Mother painted many of these and gave to people that were dear to her! Many of you have commented about the things you still have that she made-and that is a testimony of her giving spirit even still today!
Such a sweet little doll chair sits in our foyer that I upholstered in a velvet leopard fabric! Just a touch of Christmas cheer!
This table sits in a hallway leading from the foyer. Seth, as a teenager, gave me the Santa ready for his Christmas Eve ride! I always enjoy placing it in a different spot!
I have a huge collection of books, therefore, I am constantly in need of more bookcases. On top of the shelves sit two porcelain dolls that my Mother made!
I love how she dressed them!
Their faces are so beautiful!
We love sharing this season with you–stay tuned for more Christmas from our home! Thank you for inviting us into your everyday living!
“And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus”
