Transitioning your decor  from Christmas
through New Year's and into winter is easily done when you
take some of the decorations you are already using and
continue using them in your next
winter decor vignettes...

Your 12 Favorite Posts of 2017




I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year.
~ Charles Dickens ~ 


I'm not big into making New Year's Resolutions however
I do like to think of how I'd like to be in the coming year.
What type of person I'd like to be.
What I'd like to accomplish over the next year.
Today I'm sharing 12 of your favorite posts from 2017.
A little recap, if you will, as we move into 2018 and
think upon those things we'd like
to do better!

Happy Christmas Day!!!






In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David.  The virgin's name was Mary.  The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."  Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.  But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.  The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end. 
Luke 1:26-33

Sunday Sentiments ~ Finding a Nativity





In the sixth month  God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David.  The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said "Greetings, you who are highly favored!  The Lord is with you."




Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.  But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.  The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."
Luke 1:26-33 







Years ago  my family and I found a large
Italian-made nativity at Costco, I believe it was, and so
we brought it home and it has been a feature every
Christmastime in our home.

A little nativity ornament found this year at Wal-Mart.

Until the past couple of years where space was an issue.
Now that we have more room and while out looking at all of the lovely holiday decorations I began thinking of our nativity and realized it was my 
most missed Christmas decoration.




Finding this new one at Hobby Lobby
which was just the right size
was perfect.
Even with a couple of broken parts
which were easily fixed with a
little glue.
