The Tip Junkie is giving us one last chance to share anything related to Christmas that we haven’t shared yet.
I didn’t get to post pictures of the very little bit of Christmas decorating I did in our guest house.
So I would like to share it now.
I love these stackable Christmas boxes that were my mom’s (given to her by her sister, Nancy). I knew they would look perfect in our guest house.
They tell the Christmas story…
And they looks so cute next to my burlap chair. You can see the post about how I made an old Goodwill chair into a burlap beauty HERE.
I put my Willow Tree Nativity on the buffet table in the guest house.
I bought the frame at Goodwill for $1.50. It was that ugly gold, so I painted it black and sanded it down, and covered the inside with burlap. I did this project earlier this summer, but I thought it would be perfect behind my Nativity.
The star is an ornament I got half off at Kohl’s. I think I paid $2.50 for it. It goes perfectly with this Nativity set.
See the little angel under the tree? My sweet Mother-in-law gave it to me for Christmas. It’s called the Angel of Remembrance, and she gave it to me in honor of my precious Mother who passed away this past September.
I will treasure it forever!
I love that the angel is holding three branches. For me, it symbolizes my Mom watching over her three children, me, Cyndi, and Blake.
Another thing I wanted to share about Christmas is my handmade ornaments. I usually make them every year to sell at craft shows, but this year I wasn’t able to.
My mom and her sister, Nancy, are the ones who started making these over 15 years ago. I loved them so much and started making them too.
Here are some examples of ones that I have made over the years.
This is one of my favorites. He’s one of the oldest…he has a chip on his ear and a missing foot, but I still love him! Sort of like the Velveteen Rabbit. I love the little gingerbread man he is holding too.
I made these snowmen on a sleigh before my fourth son was born. I just love these little guys!
And this guy is my all-time favorite, my Woodland Santa. He has a gingerbread tucked in his pocket too.
Well, that’s it. My last little bit of Christmas to share with you. Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful Christmas decorating and traditions with me as well. I look forward to spending another Christmas with you next year!
