Christmas In Every Room

It's so easy to let Christmas - the real meaning of Christmas - get lost in the shopping and gift-giving frenzy. I try to have a reminder in every room of my house - kitchen window to my guest bathroom -  to keep my thoughts focused on the true meaning of Christmas. Most of my 'little reminders' are old and ones I collected through the years, but all have special meaning and memories. I'll share a few - I hope they make you smile.


  1. Dear Rita,
    They are beautiful and are a gentle remimder as to what Christmas REALLY means. It's lovely, bringing out decorations that one has had for a long time. They hold so many memories of past Christmas's. We have a tiny angel that has sat at the top of our Christmas tree for over 30 years !!
    Enjoy your Christmas preparations Rita. XXXX

  2. This is so sweet and I do the same thing and I always kind of wonder what guests think about about the creche in the bathroom. :-) I even keep a silver one in my antique side by side year 'round. Yours are absolutely beautiful.

  3. So pretty and peaceful. Lovely reminders of what Christmas is all about. Best wishes,

  4. I love putting our Nativity set on the hall table at Christmas Rita. I pass it a zillion times a day & it's a gentle but important reminder to me to not get too caught up in the hype.

  5. I love having special christmas things that remind us of earlier festive seasons and the traditions of our childhood!

  6. rita, beautiful, each and everyone. I hope you had a chance to read my post about almost losing something precious, if you did not get to I think you will like it a lot. I am wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas!!hugs,Kathysue

  7. I am young (25), but already have a couple nativity sets and cannot wait to keep continuing my collection as the years go by.

    I just stumbled across your blog for the first time and thought I would say hello! I looked through a few of your posts and love your style.

    I'm a blogger as well, about the world of art, but my history is in interior design and fashion. I love to hear what people are saying! Hope we get to see more of each other in the future.


  8. Rita they do make me smile. Reminded me of a beautiful nativity set my mother had purchased in the Holy Land. Good memories such treasured items bring.

    Wishing you and your loved ones a truly special Christmas. All my best to you xx Deb

    I love these. It always makes my heart sing when someone actually recognizes the true meaning of Christmas. These days, the birth of Christ seems to have been forgotten and buried beneath the commercialism that prevades our society. (That and those who would like to do away with Christianity all together.)

    I wish you a glorious Christmas, and a new year filled with love, joy, and many blessings!

  10. Oh Rita! What a lovely idea!!! I am certainly going to incorporate this thought into my decorations next year...

    I wish you a very Merry Christmas!!!

  11. These are beautiful reminders. And it is really wonderful that you place them as decors around the house. Have a happy holiday! Kellie xx


I hope this made you smile. I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
