I love-love-love a muted Christmas mantle. No bells, no tinsel, no Santa Claus. I love the colors of the manger and although I did a really fun "Merry & Bright" bundle (HERE) that I love as well, this one I really made for myself... to express how I feel about Christmas.
I made two versions... one with straw, one without. I just couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I had them both printed up. I've changed it out twice this afternoon because I love them both. I may just need to go grab a second frame and put the other one in another room!
I didn't make any extras to go with these prints (which comes in both 8x10 JPEG, 16x20 JPEG for photo printing and 8x10 PDF for printing at home)... I just wanted them plain and simple. No bookmarks, no chapsticks, no fan fair... just the sweet and simpleness of the manger itself. I hope you love it as much as I do.
