Some Christmas decorating in the living room bookshelf.
The old Putz village that belonged to my Grandmother.
One of several Nativities.
This is one for the little ones to 'see but not touch.'
Some favorite books and a vintage Santa given to me
by my paternal grandmother *many years ago*.
It was the only time I had met her.
An all white Nativity.
Another vintage Santa!
A cross stitch Nativity from a friend.
"Gifts from the Magi"
I recently won some giveaways ~
A Holiday stamp set from Gina,
A sweet snowman mitten ornament from Linda,
and precious earrings from "Olde Dame Penniwig!"
(And I always thought the three wisemens' names were
Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar!) *
"And they came into the house and saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell down and worshiped Him; and opening their treasures they presented to Him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh."
*Names of the Magi are 'Christian tradition' as is the idea
of there only being three. The Bible does not tell the number or the names
of these caste of wise men who came to worship the Christ Child. The idea
of there being 3 comes from the number of gifts stated in the verse.
