I'm having a little "Christmas in July" moment. I would never have guessed that The Wise Men would coordinate so beautifully with a bouquet of roses and verbena, would you?
I have a soft spot for vintage nativity scenes. Remember my blog post that explains how it all started? I have fallen for another distressed set that I found on Friday at a vintage shop called "Chestnuts of Suttons Bay" in northern Michigan.
These figures are made of plastic (not a treasured material in the antique world), are terribly worn (not pristine for collectors) and I love them, plain and simple. And yes, they are going to provide a little holiday spirit in my family room for at least as long as this bouquet lasts. Then I will wrap them in tissue and tuck them away in the basement until the snow flies.
Today I say, Season's Greetings! May you find delight in the beauty of every day things.
