Holiday Side Table... a very quick revamp

You saw this side table a few weeks ago, click HERE for a rebroadcast or a before.
 Now however, it's had a very simple holiday redo. 

This table is a perfect spot for the beautiful new nativity snow-globe that I received as a birthday gift from my sweet sisters-in-law. 

I also placed this cute cherub on a hidden pedestal on the books that were already there. When I saw him, I knew he was meant to come herald in the season at our home.

Found this lovely floral piece at our local grocery store gift center last year. I loved all the textures on the piece.

The books still hold up the lamp. Do you see the  tartan plaid scarf? I casually draped it over the white dresser scarf I had placed there weeks ago. This scarf was a gift from a dear friend many years ago, I believe it's an Echo brand.

Hark, the season is upon us. 

Good news from heaven the angels bring,
Glad tidings to the earth they sing:
To us this day a child is given,
To crown us with the joy of heaven.
- Martin Luther

Love to see the nativity. We see so little of it these days, and I love the plaid -- I'm mad for plaid.

LOVE your cherub heralding the Season! And your red BOOKS...drool...the plaid, nativity & poinsettia~ All make a lovely reason for the season vignette :-)

I love the Nativity snow globe. It is gorgeous. The whole scene reminds me of Scotland. It touches my heart! I want to live in your home. My decorations have made it from the shed to the porch, but the sewing machine, computer and other things seem to have gotten in the way. Will take a day off this weekend and get started. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh, I like this look too. I am very drawn to traditional looks this year. The cherub and plaid make a striking impression, love it.

Oh Marlis, that snow globe is stunning! I love the backdrop on it, and how beautiful the figures inside are! I also love the way you have this vignette set up. The plaid scarf looks so perfect, and your trumpting angel is precious. laurie
