The living room was painted just a few days ago. In putting the room back together I decided to change the mantel display. The previous display was a 7-piece nativity set hand crafted in USA. Done in soft pastel colored glass, range in height from 4 to 11 inches. The new mantel display is Department 56 porcelain village "Little Town of Bethlehem." There are three lighted buildings and several figures.
At Christmas time I would use an evergreen garland, but for now I placed an ivy garland behind the nativity scene.
Previously this set was displayed on a shelf which divided the living room from the hall stairs.
The change of wall color from off-white to light green and the change to the porcelain nativity makes me happy. I will post about the color metamorphosis on my main blog next week.
Metamorphosis Monday, is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch. Go there for a listing of more transformations.
