There are two things that I love durng the Christmas season. First, I love looking at different Christmas tree ornaments and second, I love the look of bokeh in photographs so when I read about this article from this blog, I knew I’m in for a lot of fun. It’s been two years since we last visited my in-laws and my dear M.I.L. had a lot of new ornaments hanging on their fresh fraiser fir tree this year. What a great way to play and practice making bokehs using the tips that they gave.
The word “Noel ” as in the hymn “The First Noel” is said to mean Christmas in French but was spelled as Nowell. The hymn on the otherhand was composed by John Stainer in 1871 and tells of the story of the birth of Jesus. It is also one of my favorite hymns.
These next 3 ornaments shows Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus – different styles of the same family portrait. I especially love what is written on the second one: “Let us not be silent about the silent night.”
These last 2 ornaments were made from an olive tree and were bought during my in-laws recent trip to Israel. These are tiny, measuring about 1.5 inches in diameter but they tell the message of Christmas.
We at CabbyCraft wish you and your lovedones a Blessed Christmas! May you have a wonderful time celebrating the birth of Jesus!
