You may wish to view this wonderful orphange & how the children celebrate Jesus' birth ... they will melt your hearts. Dottie is a new blogger that is going to Africa on a mission in a few weeks, I hope you will join her on this life dream travel.
Our mantle is a vintage piece with bits of gorgeous
detail still left ... the stocking on the left is Joshua's.
The stocking on the right is our elegant beauty
acquired this year.
The table holds a spot of tea & some Japanese tea cookies,
a gift from our client, Chieko ... please, come join me.
The Victorian chair is (1) of (3) that we acquired for $5
each that surround the mantle when the tree is not there.
The table is my Mother's, she loved this table. It was
always a focal point in her living room.
The tea set is English ... this was a great find, I love it.
Our nativity set is Irish Belleek ... I would have
nothing less as it is my heritage. I treasure this
& it is out all year long on this mantle.
The candles are everlasting (battery) candles that give
the perfect glow. I tied a dotted swiss effect ribbon to
finish them off.
The cross is, of course, green ... simple yet so elegant to
have the nativity in front of it all year round.
