We normally put out more than that but we didn’t get to the sale (our community sells them for $3. a dozen, bags and candles) in time to get our usual 10 dozen.
It was still magical.
See the tree in the middle of the picture? That’s the birdhouse tree with lots of birdhouses.
That year I put lights inside the birdhouses. I wanted it to look like the birds were at home enjoying Christmas also.
Those are plywood shrubs… yep. I painted them. My nephew cut them out of plywood.
There is the plywood nativity also. The plans for that can be found HERE but we bought ours at the Victorian Showcase in Pennsylvania.
See the little Cat’s Meow houses in the windows? I’ve shown them before on the blog but never how they looked from the outside. You can hardly see them in this picture, though.
I’ll close with some pictures of our imprint duck who thinks he’s human… Yea, but he still didn’t want that ribbon around his neck!
Oh, don’t worry, he won’t have an “accident” on the bench. Why? Because he has on his diaper!! Need a duck diaper? Believe it or not you can buy them!
Hope you enjoyed seeing pictures of our little duck and our house on Christmas Eve.
Love and best wishes to my followers and to all who visit at this special time of the year,
