On this great feast day, I thought I’d share with you some photos of another hand made item here at home – one that my Mom made!
This is the Nativity Scene I set up here at home this year. My Mom made it (hand poured porcelain) about 45 years ago.
It’s out of the box for the first time in about 13 years, when it was resigned to the attic because some of us kids got the hair-brained idea of investing in a new Nativity Scene for Mom for Christmas. A store-bought-multi-charactered-various-buildings-and-accessories sort of scene.
But this year, I wanted to take out the “old” scene and set it up in the entrance of my home.
It’s simple: White, smooth, hard porcelain set on red velvet, with a small string of holly and lights and a couple poinsettias – nothing fancy at all.
My Mom made it. I like it best. I love everything it represents.
It’s a good reminder of what Christmas is about.
Thanks for all your encouragement and support over the year! I look forward to spending another year in your company – to me, it’s like hanging out with a great group of friends!
To one and all, I wish you a very happy Christmas full of many blessings!
