The XMas Crib


Great X Mas eve. 2006 Dec. It was first XMas after my marriage. We all toiled all day to make this crib. It came out great and this photograph is a proof of that. So we won the parish level prize for this crib. My brother had been winning the prizes for the last few years. This time no exception that way (Exception is that I am home for X Mas this year !!)....
My mother has collected all the decorative items for the last 7-8 years.. and all those things like little stars, glitters, bells, small clay stuatues, decorative papers, all come out at this season... everytime there is something new in the design or decoration. This time there were several such - the Tall Palm leave brought at the back, Tall Clay pots filled with oil and serving as a lamp etc...
XMas is one of the cherished seasons for me.. all the memories of childhood come alive..those little cribs decorated at every house.. all the house fronts with a dangling polar star (various colors and patterns)... then midnight mass, then carole, cake, other festivities... I love these times...

I enjoyed looking through your blog! Thanks for visiting my site and commenting on my photo. To answer your question about the colour in my photo, I used a warming filter.
