Away in a manger......

I tell you people.....I am so full of CHRISTMAS SPIRIT, I am overflowing.

It has been so much fun to decorate our new home using all my treasured
some vintage, some new decorations.

I always do RED and White....
and that color  combo looks awesome in this new place.

I'll share photos of our tree....
and mantel...
and centerpieces.....
and wreaths.....

Today, I want to share my beautiful Willow Tree
that our daughter, STACY LEIGH, gave me a couple years ago.

It is one of my favored treasures.

 It is placed on our console table beneath the television
and it is a perfect spot for my beauties.

 The white camel, I found at a thrift store for $2.00 and he is just perfect for the set.

I sure was lucky to find him. :)

I have several other pieces of WILLOW TREE and always use them with my
Nativity scene.

It seems they fit in so well together......

together, they all become the epitome of

Sweet little angels....

May not a soul forget the reason for this blessed season.

  22. Looks lovely - and I especially like your console! I also have WT angels - not sure where to put them this year. My daughter also has a wonderful collection (this year I bought her the one with the sea shell when we vacationed on Cape Cod - can't wait to give it to her!) Looking forward to seeing more!!
