Christmas at my house

Merry Christmas from our house to yours. May the glow of lights and decorations welcome you and warm your hearts as we celebrate the joy of Christmas.

My mother painted this ceramic Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. I didn't realize it but she wrote her name and the date on the bottom of each piece. They are dated 1970.


 Lladró Nativity 

I even decorate the bathrooms.


  


Our tree is filled with 46 years of memories!

Giving is a joy and isn't it awesome when you know the person receiving your gift really liked it!

My granddaughters like having their own little Eiffel Towers.



The vintage Christmas Carol songbook was my mothers and is very meaningful to me. I love it's beautiful illustrations. The caroler music box plays Silent Night. It was purchased many years ago in Columbus, Georgia, while my husband was stationed at Fort Benning.







The Flight to Egypt Goebel figurine grouping was a surprise gift from my husband. He found it on Ebay for me. It says 1961 on the bottom. I love them.





            Merry Christmas from our house to yours.

  1. Just beautiful Bonnie...from the exterior lighting of your home to the lights of your Christmas tree...your Byers' Choice Carolers and sweet Christmas Carols Songbook. I love all your nativity sets and how you captured the beautiful bokeh and reflection of the tree lights behind your Flight to Egypt Goebel figurine set. Wishing you the Joys of the Season. ♥

  3. Oh, Bonnie, I love your home's single floor layout! Your nativity collection is very special, and I love the Flight to Egypt - have never seen that! Those Byers' Choice are classic, and I just love them. I spy the Santa mugs on the counter too - sweet. Your holiday touches are wonderful, and the tree full of memories unwrapped super special. Happy Holidays, Bonnie. I hope you feel like you've crossed a major finish line at this point on the calendar and can relax a bit into all your hard work.

  14. Lovely, Bonnie, your exterior shot is gorgeous! Yes, I love giving gifts, and wish I had more to give to.

  15. Bonnie, the exterior of your home is truly magical, it is so inviting, it welcomes you to come in! Immediately it is evident of the sweet, sweet Spirit that dwells within your hearts and home. Your beautiful collection of nativities are truly the centerpiece of your Christmas decor, and without the manger there would be no Christmas! I love the one your Mother painted in 1970, what a priceless treasure. The Lladró is exquisite and the Flight to Egypt by Goebel is equally beautiful! Your mantel and tree are perfectly gorgeous. Oh how I would love that vintage Christmas Carol songbook, another precious keepsake! And last but not least I always love Byers Carolers! Fabulous job, my dear friend!

  19. Bonnie, your home is both beautiful and welcoming! I love that your tree is similar to ours. 40+ years of Christmas ornaments. And the memories attached to each one. Your tree is just gorgeous. Merry Christmas!

  20. How meaningful to decorate your home with ornaments that represent the true "reason for the season" and each nativity display is so unique and lovely in its own way. Very special also to have items that belonged to your mother and no doubt, have fond memories attached to them. I really enjoyed seeing the outside of your home all lit up for Christmas - so pretty! The last pic with the carolers under that beautiful mirror with the boxwood wreath shows a fantastic display - well done! So enjoyed my stop here on the Blog Hop!

  21. Your home is just beautiful, decorated with so many meaningful treasures. The Christmas song book on your piano brought back some wonderful memories of one we had that was very similar but for the organ. I used to play and sing all those songs over and over again. You have some very special nativity sets, how wonderful to show them all off. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us on the hop!!

  24. Oh Bonnie - I thought you were taking us on a tour of a holiday mansion - and here it is your own mansion! What a picture your home makes all lit up and decorated for Christmas!

  29. That is so sweet that you have the Christmas Carol book from your mother to display at the holidays. I enjoyed all of your different nativities. I have a Lladro one also, but it is different from yours. Ours sits on my bedside stand in the master bedroom. You look like you are ready to celebrate the holidays! Merry Christmas and thank you so much for joining another blog hop!

  33. Your nativities are all lovely. I have resisted the carolers so far, but after seeing yours I think I may brake down and start collecting them. I can almost hear them singing.
