Since Christmas it has been on a round skirted lamp table in the living room. The scene is set in an alpine stable made in Italy.
I thought this winter set would make a lovely subject for a vignette under a cloche. The cloche is a bell jar designed for use in the garden. So the glass has bands around and the view is not very clear.
First I placed a white plastic lace doily (brought by a colleague from Colombia) on the table, then arranged the Family, an Angel and a bare birch tree on the doily. Around this are the Three Wise Men with their gifts and a Shepherd with a lamb.
Green and white bunches lend some color. The knob of the large glass cloche is covered with a white crochet doily, tied with a thin green ribbon.
Here all the figures are placed on the doily. The birch tree is centered with the two floral bunches on either side.
The image is not so clear, but the scene is still lovely under glass.
