The decorating for Christmas 2014 is almost complete. My tiny paper village is happy on a bed of faux’ batting snow sparkling with mica flakes on the sunroom mantle. A trio of feather fir trees and vintage deer make the scene come alive.
The table top tree in the sunroom is filled with a collection of vintage ornaments. Tiny German angels, embossed balls with “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bells” scenes are joined by paper scrap ornaments and small candles. Vintage boxed Christmas card collections look like old-fashion presents under the tree.
My grandmother’s paper nativity sits on the library table at the base of the staircase. A strand of tiny LED lights adds touches of starlight to the scene. A trio of candles adds more seasonal glow. This nativity has been re-released by B. Shakman and Co. It may be available on-line for those wishing to celebrate childhood memories.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS!
