Table Top Tuesday


I joining Marty for Table Top Tuesday with some of my Christmas decor. Click on Marty's name for lots more inspiration. Thanks, Marty for hosting!

I decorated the top of my computer armoire by adding to what was already there.
You may remember I also decorated it for fall a few months ago.

I added musical instruments and two figurines playing instruments.
I left the green table runner as a swag on the corner.

This is a new Nativity vignette. I bought the Nativity at Home Goods for only $7.99.
I like the deep colors on their garments. I also like this size to make gifts with.

It is displayed on top of my doll curio cabinet. I keep my Madame Alexander doll collection in this curio.
Simple decor, but very meaningful.

This is a different color, dark, but I like the way it turned out!

Those of you who saw my Nativity collection saw the little angels with Baby Jesus displayed in other ways. This year I created a new vignette with them!
I wish I had had this one ready in time for Marty's party.

See the little angels peeking inside to see Baby Jesus!


View from the top:
This vignette is on top of the living room coffee table which is a Butler's Tray table.

Another Nativity on the bottom shelf of the table!

Baby Jesus on a small crystal cake stand lying on top of lace (instead of straw!)

This Nativity is always display in the niche at Christmas time. I try to change it each year. This year I used a paper rose on the bible.

This year I'm decorating for a special person -- my four-year-old grandson, Caden will be here and I've changed a lot of my decor to appeal to him, nothing breakable, so he can handle and play with anything he wants!
I didn't put up the tea cup tree this year so I did my tea room village on top of the my yellow tea cart. I bought three new characters, and just realized I forgot to take a close-up picture of them. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow!

I have my little vintage-look village displayed on the antique sewing machine:

This sewing machine is in the living room.

The white Italian Nativity was moved here on the pedal of the sewing machine. It is on a wicker basket.


The family room is decorated with Santa Claus. This vignette is on top of the TV:

A whimsical wooden folk art angel and Baby Jesus is on top of the TV.

Yesterday I posted about this ceramic Nativity and the story of the missing hand (read my last post.)
I promised to show more of the vignette, here it is!


This big wooden Nativity is on the left side of the large curio cabinet:



I also tweaked the vignette I shared on TTT last week, adding some holly around the candles:
I can't seem to leave things alone!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my Christmas decor,
please come back to see more on Wednesday!

I still have to show you the top of my china cabinet
and more table tops!!

Merry Christmas!

Katherine

Wonderful vignettes and I do love that nativity you found at HomeGoods!

Love your decorations. I think your little nativity vignette is absolutely adorable! Think I'll shop for some pieces as I thrift and garage sale through the year. I have the perfect little piece for a Baby Jesus. You have such a neat touch with things you arrange. You inspire me to get out of my chair and get busy. I need to 'do' my hutch and then I'll be finished. At least I will quit after that's done!
