This cheap, plastic Sacred Heart statue is always in my kitchen somewhere. It's not pretty, but He's beautiful to me and I like to see Him on my window!
The Holy family is not an Advent decoration, either. They came from a snowglobe that was smashed years ago by Peter (Madden). I couldn't bear to throw them away, so they rest on my windowsill as a reminder. I think the little clay jug came from some monastery coffee and I thought it was too cute to throw away. Plus, it looks like one they might have used! The rocks are marble pieces that Brendan (Hitch) brought me from his trip to Rome last year. I think they came from the Vatican where some work was being done.
For Advent, I picked some evergreens to put in my +mom's ancient, antique measuring cup,
and strung a garland across the window. I heart those pinecones and berries!
It was too bright to get a good picture, so I had to put the shades down. In the next couple of days we'll probably add handcut snowflakes to all the window panes!
I'm joining Auntie Leila in her kitchen sink party! Want to see some more Advent sinks?
