Christmas Nativities

Ever since I was little I have LOVED Nativity scenes! My mother has a beautiful ceramic nativity set that is painted a light Christmas blue and has that Christmas sparkle. I just love it. Several Christmas’s ago my grandmother bought us a “manger” made out of wood and fake moss stuff to look like hay… A.D.O.R.E.
BUT… I have since moved away from home and had to leave mom’s nativity behind… (I did help my sister set it up while I was home for Thanksgiving though… 🙂 Sadly, I didn’t snap a picture of it ’cause it’s beautiful. Maybe I can get my sister to upload one sometime soon… *wink* *wink*…
I do however have some pictures of the nativities at my house! Yay!
So I would love to share them with you!
I’m linkin this post up to the Nativity Parade at the Crap I’ve Made Blog. There are some beautiful nativities there, so you should go check them out!!

 

This is my very first Nativity! I have collected Precious Moments items since I was a little girl and at some point my mom got this Precious Moments nativity. It was always my favorite Christmas decoration to set up. When I moved away to college, my mom informed me that it was mine, and I could take it to add to my small collection of Christmas decor.
I was elated!!!! So here it is, in all it’s glory, set up on the mantel of my current home…

This bear family nativity belonged to my fiance’s mother. I think it’s SO adorable!! My mom really likes bears too, so I’m sure she would love this nativity as well!
There’s actually another bear angel that goes with it, but he lost a wing at some point… so he was retired this year.
And finally, this music box nativity. It plays a lullaby if it’s wound up. It too belonged to my finace’s mother. You can see it has the baby Jesus, the animals and the little drummer boy. Sorry for the low quality… I took this pic with my cell and it didn’t come out very well… 
So there’s my nativities on parade! I would love to see yours, so go link up over at
Crap I’ve Made… Funny name, huh! Love it!
Merry Christmas!!
