The Finished Nativity Scene
Finished Barn Back
I just had to do this! In my previous post, I showed photos of the Stable and Manger scene that I purchased at a Christmas bazaar. I loved it, but felt it needed my artistic touch.
I love the difference now in the vibrant change of color and improvements to the stable. I redid everything from saw dust floor to the moss covered roof.
It was a total makeover and it looks much more real now.
The biggest transformation was in Painting the figurines delicate faces and was the hardest but most rewarding part. For this I used acrylic paint which worked wonderfully!
Working little by little, day by day, it’s finally completed!
All totaled I have 46 1/2 hours on this project, and it was worth every wonderful minute!

Wishing you much joy and happiness today and every day, Yovette
What were we thinking??? We were just two silly young girls…
It was Valentines day many (many many) years ago…
My sister and I decided to make our husbands feel like
a “King for a Day” treating them like Royalty!
It was early in the morning as we rushed outside to decorate our car.
We named it the ”Love Limo” and it was beautiful!
Next we hurried to got all dressed up in nice little short shorts,
high heels and cute little hats.
We excitedly got in our car and drove to the house to pick up our guys.
When they saw us their jaws dropped in disbelief!
We escorted our men to the car and took them to breakfast.
Everyone in the restaurant was staring at us,
and we really played it up as we pranced down the isle.
We quickly produced two stunning “King Hats”
and placed them on our guys heads.
Of course they loved being the center of attention!
After a great leisurely breakfast we drove our “Kings” downtown
because we had another surprise all lined up.
We had booked a “Columbia Gorge River Cruise”
complete with a great meal, fine music, and beautiful scenery.
We had a fabulous time! Isn’t it great to be young and silly?
