Christmas Welcome

Byers' Choice Carolers are some of my favorite decorations for Christmas.
I love using them in the foyer, because their happy little faces are always so warm and welcoming.


Here they are in the daytime, "practicing" their carols...


...next to the beautiful poinsettia basket, given to us by a friend last week. I think the color works perfectly.


Grandma and Grampa are in fine voice...she's been out shopping, and he's reminding her of the time...


...the children brought toys for sharing...


...and it's beginning to get dark...


...the street lamp and Christmas tree are glowing...


...as Father begins the carol...


...their voices can be heard, soft and clear...


...O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining.
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas.

I'll be joining ...

Your foyer is so warm and welcoming with those adorable little carolers. I just love the older couple, they remind me of some dear friends, except the lace cravat!

Babs, you already know how much I love my Byers Carolers. I started my collection in early 2000 and collected with such energy. They make my heart smile.

Yours are utterly delightful!

I have long wanted a set of those. My mom has four of them, and I love the way they look. They literally DO make me start to sing when I see them.

(Probably lucky for the family that I don't have any around here, then.)

The carolers are so sweet! Thank you so much for visiting L'Heure Bleue At Home and becoming a follower. I appreciate it and am following you back!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

We seem to like similar things..so I've decided to follow you too and get to know you. :):)
I have a feeling you are going to a lot of fun.
Hugs,

I love the detailing of the carolers. My sister also collects these. I like the boy with the nutcracker best. :)

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Sometimes, a single simple fresh wreath on the front door is all you need. I love to see a small white country church with only a green holly wreath adorned with a red bow. It's so welcome and comforting and sweet. Love your carolers. I bet it so pretty at night all lit up. Merry Christmas. xo

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

I think I can hear them singing. The setting is just beautiful

Babs,
I could almost here them singing! This is elegant, dear friend! Thank you for sharing!
Fondly,
