I have several Nativity sets…
This one I made years ago when I went to ceramics to express my artistic side. These were done with a glaze and then they were sprayed with some kind of fixative and then painted with chalk. I like the muted colors. Far Guy made me the stable. I think I made this Nativity set back in the early 1980’s. It usually is placed on the fireplace mantle.
Hopefully I will get it put up today..it is one of my goals. My huge rummage sale angel is already there ..waiting. You may notice all the nails..they have been there for years..there are eleven of them..one for each stocking when the kids and grands are here. The nails are only ever a problem when I dust..but then I smile when I think of all the stockings hung there on Christmas Eve.
This Nativity set is up. I bought it at an auction sale one day, I keep the auction slip packed away in its storage box..2 dollars..it was a bargain..I have got my moneys worth years ago.. The letters are wood and beautiful painted, the figures are plaster of paris. It is always placed in the window ledge. I like to have the Nativity sets up first before all the other decorations.
Today I have a list of things to accomplish..we are finally decorating..but we still have time:)
