Reason for the Season!

This is a new piece this year I bought from Kohls. I fell in love with these wooden figurines and the simplicity of them--is what attracted me. I have a Nativity Set that I've had for many many years but this I though was very fitting for my dining room table. I think the details are awesome, the message is there and so this is what is gracing my dining room table for the Christmas Season. Normally each Thanksgiving and Christmas I purchase a fairly expensive fresh flower centerpiece...I might bypass that for Christmas and just put some greenery around this and a candle. Sometimes, the simplest decorations can be the best cant they?

12 Thanks for your comments!:

I agree w/ you on the "simplest" decorations - they do looking beautiful and more meaningful. I loved your wooden nativity scene!

Your new Nativity is beautiful! I need to get myself to Kohl's & do a little shopping.

Thanks so much for your comment about my cat.

Hugs,

That is a beautiful, sweet Nativity and I'm shopping at Kohls soon to see if I can find one like yours. I love the pictures of your family, those grandchildren are adorable. Keep crafting though, love your gingerbread man.

My late sister collected nativities and she would have loved this one. I love how they are nestled together.
