It's Show and Tell Time

at Kelli's. Thought I would show a bit more of various decorations around our home. Please come on in....


This is our nativity set in the Living Room.

I love this little Nativity. I believe I got it from Sunday School when I was a little girl.

Another miniature Nativity. This one is pewter.

Our tree in the Living Room. I found out after taking numerous pictures, that it is nearly impossible to take a picture of the tree to do it justice. It is so pretty with all the white and silver. I always have a large nail on our Christmas tree - signifying Christ's crucifiction - the reason Jesus came to earth as a Baby.
I am so anxious to see everyone's decorations, so I am off to go look at other blogs.

Your nativity scenes are really nice. I like how the little one is from when you were little. And from Sunday school. I like that. I agree about taking pictures of the CHRISTmas trees. I can't seem to get the shot that actually shows how pretty it really is. Lights and all.

Your decorations are all gorgeous! I showed a Nativity too, I'll share lots more when hubby gets the decorations out of the attic! I probably have 50 or so Nativities. I like yours and haven't seen some like those.

Wish I could visit your house for real, bet it's beautiful!

P.S. - I forgot to mention the nail. I have a big nail that the church gave us one Easter. I keep it out all the time, but never thought about putting it on the tree, good idea!

What pretty decorations! Your tree is gorgeous; I totally agree about not being able to get a picture of the tree to do it justice-I thought maybe I was the only one with that problem. Christmas blessings to you.

What a gorgeous tree!! Love your nativities (just had to replace my little plastic one from my youth). I think I could just sit and stare at lit up trees all day:)

I loved your first litttle nativity set; such sweet expressions on their little faces. The silver nail is a really cool reminder. Maybe I can get my dad to spray paint a horse shoe nail for me!
Thanks for sharing!

Evening, Ceekay! I love your Nativities - that first one is so beautiful! And to think you have that tiny one from when you were a little girl! You certainly did take care of things. Your tree is beautiful and I love it that you have the nail there to remind us of all Jesus went throught for us!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I especially love your door decoration (did you make this?) and your little nativity - I had one similar which was in the pocket of a London Fog coat I got to have when my Godmother, Great Aunt passed away.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Ceekay, Oh my what gorgeous decorations. Your home is beautiful. I love your tree with the white and silver. What a wonderful idea to place the nail on the tree. I love it. I agree a tree is so hard to take a picture of. I can never get mine right in any light.
Love how you did your header too.
Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments.
Hope you are enjoying the holiday seaons so far.
See you again soo.
hugs, Celestina

Oh Ceekay - you made me giggle with your comments! Too cute!
I love the look of your blog right now. So festive. And all yur decor is just lovely. I have the exact small nativity ornament from when I was a child, and I gave my daughter the exact same pewter set. Very special!!

redsoxmom said...

Hope you are up and out of the house soon! I'm battling some kind of crud myself-ick! I like your nativity collection (especially the tiny one from your childhood). The nail is such a fantastic and meaningful idea. As my pastor always says -- don't leave Jesus in that manger; He came for so much more! What a great reminder of why Christ was born!

Blessings,
Linda
