Christmas Angels

It's the simple things that make Christmas time special for me.  Especially when it comes to decorating.  There is nothing better than simple and easy!  My favorite holiday display is also the simplest  and is found on my black cabinet just inside the backdoor to my kitchen.   Green, white and silver colors combine to create a subtle Christmas theme.  The angel is from my mother-in-law's house and the watering can I have used for many years.  The white urn, which usually holds my ivy topiary, is a perfect container for a rosemary 'Christmas' tree.

Just outside my kitchen backdoor is another angel, also from my mother-in-law's house.  This is a garden angel whose basket I have filled with greenery.  I can see her from the bay window in my kitchen.

For the holiday season, I have come to think of these little guardians as my Christmas angels.
