6 Word Saturday


Reason for the Season, the Nativity

When my brother and sister and I were kids we would put up a nativity scene using Lincoln Logs as the manger and figures that had been collected over the years. Now, I do the it a bit differently. I have been collecting up creche scenes from various sources and they are set up in the Living Room at Christmas.

Here are a few of them that I have already put up in the house.

The first one shows two completely different kinds. The one on the left I got from a German "scrap" store called D.Blumchen. The small white porcelain one was from the Red Rose Tea website. It was made by the Wade Porcelain Company. You may be familiar with the tiny figurines that come in boxes of Red Rose Tea. They are made by the same company.

There are two more nativity scenes in the picture below. The one on the left is from 10 Thousand Villages. It is made from very thin wood. The one on the right is from D.Blumchen.

The next is a Nativity Pop up book. There are six different scenes in the book. I really like pop up books and have a collection of them as well. I am pretty sure I got this from Amazon but have had it for quite a while.
In the final picture the creche on the left is from D. Blumchen and the one on the right is from 10 Thousand Villages. It is a fold up book and doesn't seem to want to open too widely but if you were here you could pick it up and see it better.

I loved seeing your Nativity scenes, Beth. I'll be by your house about 2:30 to look through the pop-up book. I love them also. Maybe we can make a trade. I have one of scary desert creatures that you might like....

Very nice! I will admit I didn't put ours out this year. I just didn't have the energy or patience to protect the figures from my kitties.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
