Collecting Nativity Scenes


This little Nativity Scene was my first one. Believe it or not, I found it at one of the discount stores for $9.99--are you out of your mind! The star used to light up.

Then I inherited this one from my Mother-In-Law. It has been in my husband's family since he was little. There are so many pieces to this Creche, but I only put out a few. So now I have one for each mantle. This one is in the living room.

The living room mantle all decked out with garland, Creche and stockings. Lots of stockings!

This Creche was a bit of a splurge. I ordered it from Pierre Deux and it goes with the two angels I featured on the Joyeux Noel tablescape. Notice the provencal clothes Mary and Joseph are wearing.

Does this mean I have a collection? If you have three of something, it's a collection. So I've been told......Anyway, I love this one. It sits in the dining room.

I've been admiring Laurie's Nativity Scene used in her header at Bargain Hunting With Laurie.
Check it out here.

Pin It!

Hi Irene,
Your home is beautifully decorated. Love the socks. I think it is an american tradition ? Thank you for stopping by Art Glehen.
Have a nice week.

What a beautiful nativity scene. A lot of your posts are just now showing up on my Reading List - 15 to be exact. Thought you had stopped posting for the holidays. I have some catching up to do.
