Seeing Creator’s Christmas Gifts

I can see the Creator’s gifts of
Creativity, Artistry, Genius Design, Functional Beauty, Artisanal Craftsmanship
in the inventions humans classify/identify as Christmas Decor (originally created
to celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus into His Earth as a human baby).

Each invention of Christmas Decor is made from, created from, material and skills provided by
the Creator to humans, for our benefit. Therefore, when those inventions are made using Creator’s gifts of Creativity, Artistry, Genius Design, Functional Beauty and Artisanal Craftsmanship for what’s designated as the Christmas Season, those inventions cause me to think fondly of the Creator & His Blessings! The Blessings I think of are Christ Jesus, His prosperity of the body, the soul & household wealth, plus all He created and established for humans to enjoy; His excellence. To me these Blessings are part of the prospering ambiance of Christmas and the inventions classified as Christmas Decor inspire remembrance of those Blessings. From my perspective the excellence of the Christmas Decor is an appreciation of His excellence.

Note:  Christmas Decor = Trees, Wreaths, Garlands, & other Evergreens (represent His Eternal Presence) Pine Cones (Beauty in Creation), Lanterns (represent His Light) Ornaments (Beauty), Table Settings & Dinnerware (Beauty), Fabric/Ribbon, Art, Nativity Statues, Animals/Deer (His Creatures), Snowflakes & Snow-People (represent His Snow)

The decor in this stately room is minimal, and cute.   My favorite decor items in this display are the three whimsical pieces, the checkerboard-styled deer and the large ornaments on the mantle, as well as the red pine cones, the stockings, wreath and multi-patterned chair. 

Christmas Decor: Antler Candelabra for Dining!

This dining table setting has a soothing ambiance due, I think, to the deer’s grand antler-rack as candelabra, the beautiful, plump, blue-green Christmas tree and its glowing lights, the smaller deer and its antlers, the gorgeous plates, the assortment of bling-y candles and the stemware. So, yes, that’s pretty-much everything in the photo!

The decor of this dining table scene looks perfect for the cabin theme.  My favorites in this room are the antlers chandelier, the plaid deer, the trees, the furry placemats and the chairs!

Christmas Decor: The Richly-Masculine Mantle!

Masculine-styled Christmas Decor for Fireplace Mantle

I thought it would be neat to feature this quietly-gorgeous room with it’s richly-masculine feel and appearance. The fireplace is the focal point of this photograph and everything about it is really nice! My favorites are the combination of the reindeer, candles and simple, yet handsome garland.
