~Merry Christmas to All~

( antique German Manger ~ family heirloom)

I wish everyone a joyous Christmas from my heart to yours & may all your Christmas dreams come true this holiday season. I am off to my family's home to enjoy Turkey dinner and lots of (spiked) apple cider. mmm....

This is one of my favourite family heirlooms. From my Mom's side of the family a manger brought back here from Germany. This has always taken center stage for me, before all the Christmas trees. As a child I always wanted to set up where Mary and Jesus would be placed in the manger and the three wise men caring gifts. I loved unwrapping them all from their tissue paper and bringing them to life & adding the final touches, sprinkling the hay.
A little side note~I would like to apologize for the lack of post this month. This is my busy, busy season and between running here and there, plus loosing hours due to sooooo much snow haven't had any time to post. I will be back up and running right after the new year. I have been working on finishing the final touches to my La marque croit le Château (pretend chateau) floor plan, so until then, may everyone enjoy the holiday they may be celebrating this time of year.
Merry Christmas too All!
Warm hugs ~Miss Kris~
