Let Heaven and Nature Sing


I know that I said I was going to update the blog with a picture of the dog that I started painting, but I decided to hold off until I can tell you the full story behind the piece.  So I’m hoping that I will have an update for you at the beginning of next week.

In the mean time, I’ve decided to follow trend and post a few pictures of my house at Christmas time.  It’s nothing grand, but it’s still fun seeing little touches of the holiday season all around me.

I saw a few Christmas carol garlands on Pinterest that I thought were cool so I made my own using some leftover paper that I bought for bookmaking.  I love this line because it gives me the mental image of a HUGE celebration at the birth of Jesus.  A celebration so big that even now, thousands of years later, we’re still celebrating!

I grew up in Thailand, and as a result we never had a real Christmas tree.  I like fake Christmas trees better than real ones for many reasons, but I did buy this real mini tree and put it in a pot that I had already.  IMG_5635 IMG_5634 IMG_5633 IMG_5632

I feel like a bit of a ninny-muggins for having a theme for my Christmas tree, but I do.  “Let Heaven and Nature Sing!”  I used natural colors and elements like animal ornaments.  IMG_5630 IMG_5619 IMG_5618

Stay tuned for more Christmas-y posts.  I’m planning on making more snow globes this year as well as door swags for outside!
