It is the calm and solemn night
A thousand bells ring out, and throw
their joyous peals abroad, and smite
The darkness, charmed and holy now!
The night that erst no name had worn,
To it a happy name is given
For in that stable lay new-born
The peaceful Prince of Earth and Heaven
In the solemn midnight centuries ago.
Our nativity set is almost fifty years old.
A romantic and lush wreath says welcome in an elegant way.
Vintage mercury glass candles, a cherished gift from our Andrea.
When I was very, very small my Mother always made me a Christmas Doll. I grew up, but never lost my love for dolls. My Mother was almost ninety years old when she made me these dolls. I made the Raggedy Ann over fifty years ago for my daughter.
Elegant santas grace the fireplace….
And the stocking is hung with care.
My beautiful niece, Jennifer, made me this stocking years ago. It is the last decoration I hang. Now our home is ready for Christmas.
