During my being sick over the past week, I have slowly done a little bit of decorating in my home. 
I have put out my 3 nativity sets; one wooden, one porcelain and one painted chalk ware.
Here is the painted chalk ware. It is a cat nativity. I had never seen one before since I love cats, just knew it had to go home with me.
This one is one I have owned for a long time. It is a Precious Moments and was given to me by my husband years ago.
This nativity scene I had picked up at a craft fair long ago, and I love it as well.
I hung my Christmas stocking as a decoration. I made it many years ago, It is needlepoint.
I also hung my wreath on the door.
I decorated a little more at my propane fireplace with red beads on the black wrought iron screen behind and a stacking Santa and snowman to the side.
I decorated on top of two of my cabinets.
 I decorated a little inside my recently painted display case with my village buildings.
The buildings are all Hallmark ornaments collected over the years, one a year.
Then I finished painting my angel wings. I had found them at a garage sale. They were black wrought iron, and I painted them white and embellished with a little glitter.  
The wings now adorn my bathroom with the angels in there.
The wall is turquoise but the flash bleached it out.
I am almost done decorating the second tree. Then I will reveal it.
