Finally Found…Nativity Set


Good Morning to you! It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood here, sunny and high of 50! A great day to get your hair done:) So I thought before I go that I’d show you what I found yesterday at a very high end consignment store The Savvy Fox! I have been looking for a Nativity set for about 7 years now and I wouldn’t just buy anything, well, last year I found one at Macy’s brought it home and Baby Jesus was missing so returned it and I’ve been on the look out again for one!
Here’s what I found and I think I got a deal on it, $39.99 for six pieces of the Willow Tree Nativity! I know to buy each piece of what I have would cost way more because I always go into Hallmark to look at it every year. Now it is Christmas to me, baby Jesus is here!

I was going to put them under the tree but they seemed to wabble on the tree skirt and I don’t want them chipped or broke, I’ve waited a long time for them. So I decided to put them on my stepback cupboard, don’t they look so pretty in front of my thrifted white platter?

The lady told me she had just got the set in and had put them out that day, so to me it was just meant to be!

Don’t you just hate “arm” pictures?
I’ll be joining parties when I get back from the hairdresser’s, just looked and my appt. is earlier than I thoughtSmile

I’m really sad and heartsick about the tragedy that occurred involving shootings at a school, my thoughts and prayers are with the families of those babies.

Hi Rondell,
Love your Nativity Set!! I have the same one. I really like how yours looks in front of the plate. I purchased a stable for mine from Hobby Lobby one year when it went on clearance after Christmas.
hugs,
Cindy

My mother bought me the same nativity set a few years back. I have the wise men and the star backdrop. I LOVE it. There is no way I will ever tire of it.

I agree with the "arm picture" thing. Ugh!

What a wonderful picture of you and your hubby. You look radiant!
I love your Willow set. I love the simplicity of it- my daughter has several of their pieces, too. Blessings- xo Diana

That is such a pretty nativity set. Your arms look fine and yes, I do hate those shots of me, too. I need to get back to lifting weights. Ugh!

Christmas has to have a nativity set and you found a great one!

A girlfriend of mine has given strict instructions that when I take a picture of her, I have to pay attention to the arm thing!

My heart is also heavy with grief for the families in Connecticut.

This is the nativity I got for my birthday last year. I waited quite a while to get a nice one. You are so lucky to have found it in a thrift shop! Go you!
