Decorating the house for Christmas has always been on of my favorite traditions of the season. I remember fighting over pieces of my mom's nativity set with my sister. Apparently we took turns putting up the baby Jesus.... seriously... how did we remember whose turn it was? Every year we put up decorations with the kids I am reminded that yet again I forgot to purchase a set in the after Christmas sales.
When making a trip to the thrift store I spotted this! It was only 6 bucks, but it was huge. It needed a little work... The baby Jesus was sitting behind his stand and poor Mary is being choked by the rope for her headdress! I love the simplicity of the set. Just sweet Joseph with this wife and the newborn baby. But... we are planning on moving in a couple of months. Military. I would hate to just sell it or store it for a year. But... the set reminded me of something I had back at my home!
