Mosaic Monday - The Nativity

It's time for mosaics again. Please visit Mary at Little Red House to check out everyone;s mosaic's. Especially Mary's. If you aren't having a white Christmas where you are then you can share in hers.

Merry Christmas Mary!

Yesterday we celebrated my mom's 73rd birthday and my brother Jaime, his wife Connie and their children gifted mom with a beautiful Christmas Snow globe that highlighted The Nativity...The Reason for the Season.

So for Mosaic Monday I wanted to share this gorgeous, musical snow globe. It plays Silent Night. Now my photos can't possibly do it justice, but at least you can get a small idea of how beautiful this is. Please feel free to click on the image itself to enlarge it and check out the detail.

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

  2. I have a nativity snow globe too. Just posted a picture of it yesterday! I keep a creche in just about every room of the house at this time of year. Like to be reminded what the season is all about.

  3. Lenore - Thanks for the compliments and for letting me know about the framer/canvas thing. I use big huge labs but I'd not looked around at some of the other options available. Thanks again.
