This is Merrillee, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. I love to decorate for Christmas, and one of the things I like to display is my collection of Nativity sets. I would have collected more, but when we moved to Florida, we downsized our house, and I just didn't have room to keep them all or display them.
When my husband and I got married, we started out with this very simple Nativity set.
After a few years, I hoped to get a really nice set, but I was unwilling to spend the money. On the day after Christmas one year, my sweet husband found one during the after-Christmas sale at a local card shop. He added the angels a number of years later. Here it is.
Over the years, I began to look for unique or different Nativity sets and try to buy them during the after Christmas sales. Then people started giving them to me as gifts. Finally, I had to ask people to stop because I didn't have room for them anymore. Here are a few more of the sets that I put out each year.
Do you have any special Christmas decorations that you put out each year? Tell us about them.
Also, I hope you will read the upcoming Christmas story written over several days by some of the Craftie Ladies bloggers.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR
