Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Christmas is all about gifts. Who doesn't love gifts and Christmas? No matter how you say it - Buon Natale, Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings - there wouldn't be any of it without the perfect King leaving His heavenly kingdom and experiencing a human birth so He, as one of us (human) for a time, could carry out the divine plan of redeeming us from the curse. The Father's Gift to us. This scripture says it best:  2Cor. 9:15 "Now thanks be to God for His Gift (precious) beyond telling (His indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift)" Amplified Bible.
It's reason to celebrate

This old tale by Clement Moore sits on my piano

I made this little grapevine tree by wrapping grapevine around and around a tomato cage. I made most of the snow people too. The snow lady with hat and fur, you can find in my etsy shop.

I made this angel on a long ago Christmas. It never gets put away. I want to see it all the time.

These 3 little trees are all made from vintage bedspreads and have old wooden spools for trunks. You can find these in my etsy shop as well

I like to put Christmas time on  the mantelpiece

  1. Rita your decorations are so beautiful! It makes it so special when you have created them yourself.

  2. My husband likes to say that we should celebrate our King's birth every day of the year.....on Christmas morning we read the passage of Scripture describing his birth in Luke. I love your decorations and your bedspread trees are divine!

  3. I'm listening to Silent Night as I write this. Outside my window I see the mountain peaks under a blanket of fresh snow. All reasons to praise the Father, but the greatest reason of all is Jesus. Thank you for this sweet reminder of why we have Christmas to celebrate. Your decorations are delightful, and I love those bedspread trees, too! Hugs, Nancy

  4. Hi Rita, just popping in, again, to say I'll be featuring your Christmas post at Every Room In The House - The Finale party tomorrow. Happy New Year! ~ Nancy
