Annie's Christmas Tree

I am sharing my sister Annie's Christmas Tree,
 decorated in shades of red this year.
A pre-lit frosted tree.

"The Christmas tree's a symbol of everything that's good.
Adorned in decorations with an Angel up on high.
With lights twinkling brightly like stars in Heavens sky.
A Christmas tree is a sign of peace and love for all mankind." 
unknown.

Enjoy these photos....





Twilight


The Teddies are patiently waiting
 for their spot under the tree.

The Teddy family has grown since last year



Annie made this beautiful Manger
years ago.
We must remember that
"Jesus is the reason for the Season."
The stable,  Annie made also.

There's a cat at the top of the ladder. 


The Angel.
Her light is working this year.

The Blue Hour - A magical hour.
The twilight period each morning
or evening, when there is
neither full daylight
nor complete darkness.

Away In A Manger

For unto you is born this day in the city of David,
 a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:11 

A little manger scene.


Made from paper twist ribbon, 
pipe cleaners and raffia.



Made in the 1990s.



Three wisemen/women

Mary and Joseph

I used paper lace doily for his robe
 and blue pipe cleaners


Paper twist ribbon was used in the 90's for crafts.
bows, wreaths, dolls etc.
The colour did fade with time.







Merry Christmas
Wishing you Joy, Love and Peace.
