Merry Christmas and welcome to my home! I’m so glad you’re here!
With my recent vision scare, I really focused on keeping things simple this year and it took me several days to get everything out. I was surprised at how very enjoyable it was to just do it little by little. And great news, I CAN SEE IT ALL. My left eye is still dimmer than the right but I am seeing amazingly well! Thank you so much for praying for me!
My nativity from Venezuela (our former country of service) greets you as you enter the room. Traditionally, Venezuelans do not place the baby Jesus in the manger until Christmas day, which I love the idea of, but can never quite bring myself to do.
Every year I cover the matte of our family picture with some wrapping paper. It takes about a minute and gives it a festive touch. Here’s what it looked like last year.
A few ornaments in the kitchen make me smile while I do the dishes!
My tree is gold, red and cream. This is Paraguayan Nyanduti that I thought would be beautiful as snowflakes. They would use these to embellish a top or a dress.
I just love my little 10 cent birdies. I think my husband finds them mildly creepy though! :)
My favorite ornaments (also used on the kitchen curtains) were an after Christmas clearance steal at Target last year while we were on home assignment.
Thanks for stopping by! I only wish it was in person so I could make you a latte and share some yummy Christmas cookies over a good visit!
