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." 

Enjoy these photos....


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.

Beneath the tree.

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.
