I've always enjoyed decorating for the holidays, but have cut way back in the last several years, passing things on to my daughters. I still put out my Santa collection of unique and mostly handcrafted pieces.
I also have several special nativity sets, and of course my tree is filled with family ornaments collected for years, again many of them handmade.
Last year my brother sent me a box of my parent's ornaments, so I've showcased them all together in an old fish bowl and placed it on a stand on my dining table center piece.
I've also included a few photos from the cottage, hope they inspire your holiday creativity.
Christmas for me has always been about family and friends, but first and foremost the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
