Decoration at my house

On my Dec 16 or 17 post, I mentioned a picture about the Creche I set up.  Here it is:

Avon-Creche---web

The stable was made by my Grandfather many years ago (probably over 50) for a ceramic Creche that my Grandmother poured/fired and stained red.  My son has that Creche but didn’t have room for the stable.  I bought, over several years, all the pieces to the Avon® Christmas Collection.  This year I set them both up on our buffet (a 7-foot wide Oak ‘monster’) that once belonged to the same grandparents talked about above. It has a mirror back which caught the reflection of the dining room light behind me when I took the picture.  I think it turned out rather well. Post processing included a little cropping and one of the settings in Topaz Labs’ Detail3 (I don’t remember which one.)

Daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, retired from gainful employment. We have 2 cats and 2 dogs. I love to travel (we cruise, go to Pagosa Springs and take one other trip every year) I like to digitally scrap book (all that traveling), make greeting cards (all occasion & Christmas), write fantasy fiction (got two, maybe three books in the works right now), and photography. I generally participate in most of Kam of Campfire Chic and Amy of Lemon and Raspberry's 30 Days of Lists challenges and also in Lain Ehman's LayOut a Day (LOAD) challenges.
