Decorating our apartment for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do! I love the way it looks and feels. I especially love the fact that we have a fireplace in our living room (and one in our bedroom too)! I started decorating before we left for Thanksgiving so that when we returned we could enjoy the decorations for the month of December. We travel to our parents homes for the holidays (this year will be in Maryland with my family), so we like to enjoy the Christmas decorations in our home for a decent amount of time.
The nativity scene is my favorite decoration that goes out each year. Andrew and I just starting collecting this “Willow Tree” set last year. We need to add to it. I like to keep is central and always visible. What would Christmas be without the Christ?
I grew up with these village houses on display at Christmas, so I am thrilled to have my own little village for my (now growing) family. These were my grandmothers. When she moved, she had to downsize quite a bit and she passed them on to me. All of them but the Church, which was my favorite. It is her favorite one as well. She keeps that one up year round.
I hope you are all looking forward to Christmas and enjoying this season! I am off to prep for tomorrows glaze firing. All most done for this year!
