With the closing on our new home just ten days away, I feel hard pressed to participate in Marty's Cloche Party. My cloche, along with most of my stuff, is packed away in a warehouse. However, I like to play! What's a gal to do?
I went to the $$ store and for less than five bucks bought a miniature nativity scene, along with some other do dads, shown in this post. Fortunately, I already had my apothecary jar with me in the rental, and Marty said that could count.
I bought the little mirror to use as a platform to place on top of an upside-down glass so that my little guys could be elevated. I took a picture outside of the apothecary jar because I know that the glare of glass is hard to shoot through.
You'll notice there's a stable, the Angel of the Lord, the three wise men, Mary, a shepherd, and even a lamb. I guess that Joseph is out gathering some wood to make a rattle. (It was made in China. You get what you pay for.)
I also bought a cute white star, which is hanging from the top and has bells attached. I stuffed some tissue paper inside to hide the glass. Finally, I attached a glittering silver and white bow.
What'd ya know? I've learned a little something from all you creative Blogland ladies!
