In recent years I've kept my special Nativity tucked away,
not wanting it to be broken by little ones wanting to touch
out of childhood curiosity.
Hopefully they have learned the "don't touch" phrase.
This afternoon I brought down the box filled with my special pieces. I had forgotten how much I loved it. Several years ago I bought it a piece at a time through Ashton Drake Doll Company. The dolls are porcelain--and breakable!
Inside the box was my stash of angle hair, which I just found out is no longer made, and strand of white lights.
I love the faces of these pieces.
When looking at them, I can just imagine a Children's Christmas program at church, with the tiny tots dressed up in their homemade costumes.
For now, they are safely displayed in our living room.
This sweet little fellow carries his flute.
The Three Wise Men have their gold, frankincense, & myrrh.
The Angel...I love her golden curls!
