Are you searching for someone?
 Yesterday , I finally started dragging out all my Christmas things , with the idea that I could decorate quickly ( yeah , I can be delusional ) and then move on to other things that need to get done before the actual day. It took several days and I still have a few things I want to add. Add a couple of little wooden sisters into the picture....... They were into everything as you will see when you scroll down!

 First, I brought out my favorite Christmas thing and that is my antique wooden creche. It took awhile to figure out exactly how I was going to set it up, but pretty soon, I was all done.

The creche charmed them!

The wise men

 There were wise men on elephants and leading camels, carrying gifts for baby Jesus. There were Shepards herding sheep and lambs.
The shepards and their flock
Oh come all ye faithful!!!!!
Attempting to decorate
Ooooohh, this is the prettiest one! I can see myself....
How about this ?
 The tree was next. This year I decided to keep things simple, which meant only one little feather tree.

 The little sisters thought it was the most beautiful thing they ever saw.  Helping can be a good thing and also a not so good thing.....

 After, I hung up an old pair of stockings on the mantel in the old kitchen fireplace.

 The sisters figured out that goodies were going to end up in those stockings. Off they went upstairs to the little doll trunk to search for the perfect pair.

They disturbed a wee brown bear who was hibernating in with all the doll clothes.  He was surprised, but intrigued by these two sisters...

We should get lot's of goodies in these stockings. Brown bear can come too. We may need him!

Here hand this to brown bear. 
Bears' are good climbers! careful now!
What do we have here? Chocolates , gumdrops and peppermint?
Careful Eugenia! 
Gumdrops and peppermint ! My favorites!

Do you see anyone? I think we are safe....

Mmmmmm, yummy yum...

Merry Christmas Brown bear! Have a nice sleep and we will see you in the Spring.

Merry Christmas to you Elena!
And to you too, Eugenia!

And of course, A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

  14. Dear Peggy,

    What a splendid story with Eugenia and Elena discovering the delights of Christmas with the backdrop of your lovely old home! What fun it is to see the creche and the Christmas tree through their eyes! You are a wonderful storyteller and we always enjoy your delightful photographs! What a dear helper little Bear is! We love the photograph of the girls hidden away in the nook with their basket of candy spilled all about the hearth!

    You have such a gift for playing with those wooden dolls and sharing the fun with all of us. No one puts life into the dolls that I make like you do and I so enjoy seeing your imagination come to life. Can't wait for the next saga!!
    Merry Christmas and all the best in 2015
