More Decorations

I have an arrangement of evergreen boughs & gold & silver pine cones in a cut glass bowl in the center of a coffee table, the berries are attached to my very special tree I posted about earlier.

A close up of the baby Jesus in the nativity scene. I made this set back in 1992, in a ceramic class, I couldn't afford to buy one this size so decided to make it.

Here is a candle holder carved by my father in law next to a nutcracker man.

Another "Snow village" building Firehouse N0 1.
These are just a few items that have some meaning for me & enjoy getting them out each year. I am by no means a Martha Stewart decorator & like I said in the side bar Favorite Christmas question of what style decorating I have its, Heinz 57 style just like the rest of my house. But I like to think that it is homey, comfortable & welcoming.
