I was very blessed to grow up in my Great-Grandma's home and live under the legacy of one very AMAZING woman. Many stories circulate around her life, including memories of how she painted her front window every Christmas--every Christmas was a different depiction surrounding the nativity, and each one was as beautiful as the one before it. My Grandpa asked me to paint the window this year, and I was super excited yet rather terrified--how could I live up to such a legacy? But, let's face it--I'll do anything for my Grandpa. <3 So this week I went to work...
and after three days of painting (that window was a little bigger than I anticipated), I finished! Now, I know it's not the masterpiece my Great-Grandma could produce, but I have a few years to catch up. :) For this year, here it is!
and yes, I acknowledge the pumpkins lining the stairs to the door--we are quite festive at my house. :)
and.... at night time!
Let the Christmas Season begin! :)
