The Christ in Christmas!

 

cloche 001These small figurines of Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus are a part of a set that belonged to my parents, so they have very special to me.  Because they are small they don't show up very well just sitting on a tabletop but when placed under a cloche....Voila'.... they are immediately raised to a the level of importance, visually.

  cloche 004 I placed a small round mirror on a white plate that acts as the base for the figurines.  I set the plate on a dollar store fir wreath then wove a battery operated string of small lights.

cloche 008

I added the antique blue silk ribbon bow last! 

Simple things that elevate this meaningful and most important symbol of Christmas, the reason for the season.

I am linking today to A Stroll Thru Life's Cloche Party

and sally's Blue Monday.

Having the nativity from your parents be the star in your holiday decor is wonderful. And is interesting how a clear dome placed over them makes them stand out more.
