A Peaceful Setting

I know I've been sprinkling a little bling around.  However, that's not the focus in our home at Christmas.



Last year I had Jesus, Mary, and Joseph displayed on a desk.




It was pretty, but I wanted to do something more representative this year. While I was thinking, I glanced over at the pile of pillows in my rustic box,




and knew what I wanted to do.




Out went the pillows. I added straw, and placed one of my "First Noel" fabric pieces  as a backdrop. No bling here. Just a peaceful setting.




See you soon.

  1. Hi Rosemary! I love what you did in the rustic box, Jesus was born in pretty rustic sorroundings anyway, but now he's comfy in your pretty and warm home. Happy holidays pretty lady, for you and your lovely family.. or men, is it, if I'm not wrong?!

  16. I love this! It's so beautiful. The bling can definitely distract from why we celebrate Christmas. What sweet way to bring your family's focus to the baby Jesus.
