When it comes to decorating for Christmas, I use a lot of the accessories I've collected through the years which have special meaning to me and my family. Some of the decorations have been passed down from generation to generation, and I love unpacking them and recalling memories of Christmases Past.
Being a traditionalist, I tend to create similar vignettes year to year, sometimes adding new accessories to the old. Some may think that's boring, but I love family traditions that have evolved through the years and it makes me happy to decorate my mantel the same way I did it last year ... or to set up our Nativity set the same way.
So, in sharing my Christmas decor this year, I'm probably going to repeat some of my posts from last year, like yesterday's Christmas Candy Centerpiece. But I also have some new things to share, one of which I can't wait to show you later this week.
Today, I'd like to share one of my favorite Christmas accessories -- our Nativity set. It's not a fancy or expensive set ... in fact, it's rather plain ... but we've had it a long time and I love it.
I especially like it displayed under the French cross which hangs in our dining room ...
I can't wait for our granddaughter Avery to see the Nativity this weekend. She loved it last year, and it's a wonderful way to remind her of the real reason we celebrate Christmas.
I'm enjoying everyone's Christmas decorating ideas, and will post more of mine later this week. Until then ... Happy decorating, Y'all!
