Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
|So, the next one is made.... Paper collage with some markers|
Maria here. As y'all know, I work for a cantonal police corps, and every year, the caretakers of the command building, where our offices are, set up a beautiful festive decoration, with the Holy Family, in the main entry area on the ground floor. So everybody who works there, and everybody who comes in with questions, problems, and complaints, and whatever else the police have to deal with, sees it. Every year the setup is different. Last year the caretaker couple used an old apothecary's bureau, with lots of small drawers and hidden shelves.
This year thy used branches and driftwood.
The four Advent candles are always part of the composition. And they're lit properly, one more each Sunday.
The red decorations are made of felt - As are the figures that make up the Holy Family and the shepherds.
This décor will stay up until the 12 Days of Christmas are over. Then the caretakers put it away, and plan a new setup for next year.
