Nativity




My mother gave me this nativity after Christmas (those sales!) a few years ago. She has a matching one. I love the intense but muted colors and the humble, adoring expressions on the faces. This is my first year using the set; we haven't had room in past years. Now it sits on the mantel, safely out of reach of Red Chief.

  1. Very intense in color as you say...I like it...I like the set a LOT!

    But, I'm not sure who "Red Chief" is...but as long as they're safe from harm, that's good.

  2. Red Chief is my 1 1/2 year old son, who is keeping me up at this unearthly hour. :)

  3. Nothing more beautiful than a nice manger scene. I look at them all the time. I think if I was bad I might have about 10 of them...The selection has increased over the years.

    Take care,

  5. Your nativity set is beautiful. I think the mantle is a great place to display it, even without a 1 1/2 year old.

    I just noticed the time posted on Hootin'anni's comment and your reply. That is an unearthly hour.

  10. Beautiful!

    I have a similar one that was given to me last year. I am also using it on the mantel--To keep it out of reach of a 3-year-old grandchild!
