Nativities

As promised, I'm sharing my Nativity collection. I counted about 30, but don't have my Nativity tree with ornaments up this year. I like to display them differently each year, except for a few I like so well, they make an encore presentation!

The one above, and below are new designs this year.


I found some new "hay" to use as a floor base to several of the designs, it was only a $1 at Dollar Tree!
Look for it in several of the designs!


Since I am known for my love of yellow roses, I was delighted to find this yellow Nativity:

It is perfect on my yellow rose chest in the dining room!


This one always must be displayed on the coffee table in the family room.



The vignette is different this year:

I added the red poinsettia, and of course the new "hay!"

This plant stand is in the living room:
The white Italian Nativity is on the top at the base of the angel


A white pearl finished Nativity is on the bottom:
with a single white rose



Flight to Egypt

Several small "shelf sitters" are around the columns in the dining room:








This one is on top of the small doll curio in the living room:

This Nativity is on the bottom of my yellow tea cart:


This Nativity is displayed on our vintage sewing machine
with the antique clock:



The Baby Jesus and little angels are on the Butler's table in the living room:
Pearls are used instead of hay:


This one is on the large doll curio in the family room:


This large Nativity is in the niche between the dining room and family room:



The picture below is a framed Christmas card we sent one year:


The Fontanini Nativity my husband brought me from Italy:


A friend made this pine cone wreath for me this year. I displayed the only new Nativity I bought this year (at TJ Maxx) It is on a little round mirror. This is on the breakfast nook table.


Our foyer has the Nativity used on my blog banner:





The "hay" was a fun addition this year!


I used this white Nativity in a tablescape recently:

Nativity pillow:

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Nativity collection and some of the new ways they are displayed this year. Do you have a favorite? It's hard for me to choose a favorite, but this one is in the top ten:
and this one because of the uniqueness:
and this one:

and of course the yellow Nativity with yellow roses!
Oh, it's just too hard to choose, I love them all!!

I'm joining Marty's Table Top Tuesday, and Kim's Wow Us Wednesday. Click on their names for lots more decor entertainment!

Merry Christmas!

I always love to see your nativities. I haven't shown mine yet...but I don't have as many as you! I think maybe I have 10?? Watch for mine. I think my favorite is the golden one that is one of your favorites...but really, how can you pick a favorite?!

Happy New Year, Katherine!

Thanks for putting the button on your sidebar, I so appreciate it.

And.... thank you for sharing your
"reason for the season" nativity vignettes and collections with all of us. Love the one in your little garden terrarium! So clever!

So glad I found you in 2011 and look forward to getting to know you better in the coming year.

Many blessings to you and your family,
Alison
