We Three Kings....





At a resort estate sale awhile back,  a handsome set of nativity figurines came home with me.

It was noted that the resort owner used to buy several sets of these, made in the Philippines, and gave them away as gifts at Christmas time.

This year, the figures, Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the three kings,  grace the front hall table.

Usually, there is a scented candle burning in front of them.

 Right now, the air is filled with the fragrance of spiced apple.

While I have accumulated several manger scenes throughout the years, this one is one of my favorites.

If interested, you can read more about it here.

DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE MANGER SCENE?

Table Setting in Miniature....

 
Regular readers of this blog know that one of my all time favorite hobbies is dollhouse miniatures.

A couple of years ago, while traveling in Colorado, I shopped at Norm's Dollhouse. 



I bought a beautiful set of tiny rose-themed dishes and minuscule pink glasses!

When I got my late mother's curio cabinet, one of the shelves seemed like the perfect place for a miniature scene.




It has a mirrored background so everything looks double!

My regular dollhouse is charming but not very big.

So today, I am so happy to share my dining room table in miniature.



And just in time for the Christmas holidays, I added a little cabinet filled with a tiny Santa collection.


I made the lacy tablecloth.


Looks like the  dollhouse residents will enjoy some fine dining coming Christmas this year.

Prettiest Little Angel Ever....



If ever there was an angel to tug at your heart,  she's here at our house.



I actually bought her to give as a gift to someone but when pulled  out of the box, it was impossible to part with her. 



Oh dear. Does that make me look like a bad, selfish person?  hee hee 

 But seriously, she was too cute to give away.


Right now, I put her in the center of our kitchen advent wreath.




Virtually every time I see that sweet face, it makes me smile.

Her darling angel wings and rhinestone sprinkled gauzy skirt are also sooooo pretty.


Her little chubby hands are folded together in prayer.


Angel girl is adorable.

Hope she sends blessings to each of you reading this!

DO YOU HAVE LOTS OF ANGELS IN YOUR DECOR?
