This year’s theme was a lot like last year’s. I’m stuck on snow again. It’s simple. It’s fun. It’s easy. It’s classic. And I have lots of things to use on it.
Normally, I do a Nativity Tree like the one I finally got to see last year in New York City. But decided to go with a traditional look this year on our main tree. So it struck me that I could still do the Nativity theme by just scaling it down some to one of my smaller nativities….the Fontanini set.
Since I have cherubs for each grand, I thought they needed to be on the wreath above the nativity set that I had placed on yet another stump. Then I added a couple of white trees, some snowy pine garland, a couple of lit churches and some candles.
I keep messing with it. Tweaking here. Fixing there. Adding this. Taking away that. Argghhh!
I said outloud yesterday…Step away from the mantel. And leave it. Alone.
It’s hard. But I will win this battle!
