I used a jelly jar, borax, a fawn I have had for years with embroidery thread, a bit of fake holly and a seed bead at the neck, and rosemary sprigs to create this scene for Mom. She is in a nursing home with very little holiday decorations. Hope she enjoys it!

um,   yay?

It is very cute. And everybody likes a little bit of decoration. To bad the nursery home doesn't decorate.

It will be a nice thing for her to enjoy!

I think the borax makes nice snow! 

Now you have given me the idea to use ivory snow flakes!
