Here his big sister assembles the very old cardboard nativity.
I should probably have removed the butterflies on the wall behind but then I'd have to store it somewhere until January and I wouldn't know where to put it!!!
Here is the nativity we ordered through Sears about 45 years ago. Not a chip on it so far. It winds up and plays Silent Night. The shepherd on the left is a thrift store find as are a few of the sheep. The rest I made with the help of my DH.
This set fits perfectly onto the bottom of my mom's old treadle sewing machine. Notice this year he has placed baby Jesus on the roof. ( I told him the baby needed to be near his mommy so he relented).
A small glass set in the livingroom. For a few years I collected nativity sets and now have a number of them.
You can just make out the Precious Moments set also made of glass here beside my old soup tureen filled with Christmas balls that didn't make it on to the tree.
That's it for today. It's been a busy day and I'm ready to sit and relax. Hope your day has been a good one too.
