As promised, here is the view of our winter nature table at the House of Glee. The winter nature table had to be combined with the nativity set, so the Earth Angel, Santa Lucia and King Winter are watching over the Wise Men and their camels as they make their way across the hutch:
The Earth Angel, King Winter and the felted angel hovering above the nativity set are all made by Nushkie and Santa Lucia was made by Haddy2dogs. Etsy has been a den of temptation, I tell you....
December 13 is Santa Lucia's feast day, but today was the day the school celebrated the festival. At my daughter's request, my mom made a Santa Lucia crown from silk ivy leaves complete with candle-holder clips from Germany:
Despite several requests from our own Lucia, Bede and I refuse to light the candles. Call us spoilsports, but we are not interested in winning any Darwin Awards.
Tomorrow, I have my last gig in my fall series with Pierce County Library System at the Eatonville branch, and then Sunday is the Winter Spiral. See you next week!
