Merry Christmas Wishes to You!

MerryChristmas  to you!  As I sit here late on Christmas Eve after a busy week-plus of visiting friends while also looking at houses with my hubby for our potential next home, it is nice to sit down and rest in the quiet of a late evening thinking about the birth of our Savior...

"I'm dreaming tonight  of a place long, long ago...," the song sung by Karen Carpenter so timeless and oft-played on the radio this time of year, is quietly drifting through my sleepy head now after putting out the last of the hidden Christmas gifts.

Memories of Christmases past bring back warm, happy thoughts of Christmas Eve services held by candlelight and the special message of Jesus' birth
in a stable in Bethlehem.

One of our last Christmases in our Big House ~ love this Italian Nativity found long ago at Costco
when it was Price Club, remember that?  The pillow on the couch is an old J.C. Penney find.

So just a few thoughts here before heading to bed...

And today I looked again for the new Nativity to bring over and set out but it is not to be found this year...

But I do have this lovely Mary and Baby Jesus...

So this is our special Nativity this year to help remember the birth of our Lord.

Simple with its message of Love...

The looked-for Nativity in last year's photo ~ love the Old World feel.  Beautiful and beatific!

May He comfort you and be your guide in this crazy journey called life!

Share Your Style will post up on Wednesday but otherwise I am taking some time off for the Christmas season and will be back after the New Year.

Joyeux Noël,


  1. Your photos are exquisite -- all beautiful. I know what you mean about new nativity scenes. I have more than I could put out this year (and I put out five...no, six.) I love them to pieces.

    1. That's sweet, Jeanie! I do love Nativities and my mother-in-law collects them so I seem to pick up small ones (usually Christmas ornaments) every year. ;)

      Happy New Year to you!!!
      Hugs and blessings,
      Barb :)
