The Perfect Gift:
My creativity kicked in to high gear as I turned this old storage bin in to a home for a cherished creche. The creche was given to me by my mother- in -law who sadly passed away this week. Wanting to do something special for my husband to honor his mother this was my gift to him this year.I bought an old storage shed. Removed the majority of the front section and replaced it with plexiglass.I used the top of the old creche to cover sides of shed. The actual work was done by my good friend, Peter, a talented carpenter.
Two shower curtains stapled to top of structure keeps rain from seeping in. Once the structure is covered in hay it looks just like a manger. I couldn’t be happier.
Decorating the Tree:
This year I decided after redoing my living room I would go with a silver and gold theme. I couldn’t believe my luck when I spotted 2 bags of ornaments all silver and gold. Each bag marked $2.50. I took both bags and had some ornaments left over to put around the room. I added red bows in honor of my mother-in- law, she loved red bows.
