The house (inn) and the bottle brush trees are from the Martha Stewart collection at Grandin Road.
I purchased them last season for 75% off!! The trees were in a set of three as were the houses. They were dirt-cheap people!Epsom salt provides for a snowy scene.Where is baby Jesus you may ask?
It is a tradition in my family to not put out baby Jesus until midnight because he isn't "born" yet.
My youngest niece gets the honor.
whose all-embracing birth
lifts Earth to Heaven,
stoops Heaven to Earth."
