Christmas Nativity 2008

Since I neglected to do this earlier, I wanted to post several pictures of this year's dressertop Nativity, which I think turned out unusually fine. One daughter had painstakingly made tiny snowflakes of paper and sprinkled them with glitter. I used them in the Nativity with old lace, bottlebrush trees, pearls, and vintage cardboard houses, together with topiaries made of dried hydrangeas and Spanish moss. Maybe the topiaries weren't the same scale or season as the evergreens, but both are among my favorite things... On the bookshelf, even my jewelry tree looked festive with bird ornaments and white and silver jewelry. I admit I love little things!

A Blessed Little Christmas season to you!

I love your little dresser top tableaux! Did the unicorn replace the nativity for three kings' day or sit there during advent?
The bottlebrush trees and snowy felt and flakes really look sweet. Thanks for the glimpse!
