Vintage Shutters!

Welcome, welcome all of my sweet blogging friends!

I really hope that you all had a great weekend and that you have some fun Valentine plans. Those of you that don’t I am always available on Face Book to chat! LOL

I can hardly wait to show you my new old addition to my home. They are soft yet rustic and they really make a great addition to my fireplace mantle.

Ta do! I love love love them! I really like the pretty fabric on them. The wood and the fabric together gives a real Shabby Chic feel.

I bought these shutters from a darling Etsy shop full of Shabby Chic items, https://www.etsy.com/shop/PurpleFlowerFairy. If this is your kind of thing you should go check it out and even if it isn’t check it out anyway you may find something you like for you or your home. Debbie is really great to work with, you will love her.

Religious Christmas Relics in the Home

Thank you dear friends for stopping by. I want to share with you today some beautiful vintage and antique Religious Christmas Relics. I really love having these pieces in my home and because of my faith in our Savior Jesus Christ I like to have several reminders, for myself as well as others. It brings a beautiful warm feeling.

On the night of the birth of the Savior, Angels herald his coming.

I have a collection of many Angels and these are just a few.

Angels are true messengers sent from above, they minister to us here on earth.

I call this one my little lost Angel for he has a haversack on is back.

I but them on my tree as well.

This nativity scene has been in my home for over 40 years. It is a dear friend that I love to take out of the box. When my children were small we would read the story of the nativity from the Bible and the children would put the figures into place as we read.

These Three Wise Men sat on my Mother’s mantle when I was small. She gave them to me and I adore them.

BeFunky_Re scriptures.jpg

Here is an old Swiss Bible that has been in my home for over 40 years. The year Bible was printed in 1892! I wish I knew a little Swiss so I could read it.

BeFunky_Re Believe.jpg

During the Christmas holidays many hearts are open to do special things for others. But there are others whose hearts are sad and lowly because of experiences that they have had to deal with. I urge you to go the extra mile, help one another a little more, give a stranger a smile with a Merry Christmas. Say a little prayer before you get out of bed in the morning and ask that people who need your help will be brought into your life. If we have a belief in our hearts we can share it with others in many ways.

I would love it if you shared your special experiences with me. We all come into one another’s lives for a reason, let’s not miss a chance to share.

((Warm Hugs))

Jo
