Happy Birthday, Jesus!


I'm sharing some of my Nativity collection.

The Nativity below is new this year. I saw it at Hallmark and liked the way the cow on the left and the sheep on the right are snuggled up to Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus. Joseph is 14 inches tall.


The Nativity below is also new this year, and I also bought it from Hallmark. I liked this one because of the Three Kings being with them, and they are displayed in a circle. Joseph is 12 inches tall.


Another new Nativity this year. This is a Shelia's ledge sitter. Thanks, Carrie for helping me find this one!

The little angel below is a Dreamsickle.

I've had this Nativity ornament for several years.


The Nativity ornament below was purchased from Pier 1 several years ago.

This Nativity server was purchased from Kirkland's a few years ago.


The Fontanini Trio is displayed on a cake plate!

This is the way it is displayed this year, with more color.



This is a framed Christmas card I sent several years ago.

The Nativity below is displayed in front of a small mirror.

The little angels below are watching over baby Jesus. They are displayed in a wooden tray.

Another Nativity displayed on the large gold mirror.

Nativity and angels displayed on a wooden creche.

Nativity below made from clay flower pots.

Little folk art Nativity of wooden angel hanging a star over Baby Jesus.


New pearlized white Nativity displayed with white flowers.
I moved the location of this one, to the foyer.


I made the Nativity below for a gift

This is one of my favorite Nativities. I bought it at Hobby Lobby last year.


Below are three different ways I have displayed this Nativity set. First is on a large mirror.


Last year I displayed it on the Bombay chest that was draped with a table runner.


One of my new year's projects will be to create another blog to share all my Nativity collection (thanks to Carrie for this idea!) Watch for the announcement of this new blog next month!

The card below is what we mailed out last year. I still just love it. I always send cards with a baby Jesus on them.




Wishing you a wonderful celebration for our Lord Jesus' birthday!
