Our Christmas Entry

 
At the end of last year's Christmas season, I was in a darling little country shop near my house which has so many beautiful items in it I could just roam around in there for hours. Well they always have wonderful after Christmas sales and this nativity was no exception. Originally it sold for $80 but was reduced down to a very affordable $35. And they had two sets so my sister Kim picked up one for her home.
 
 
This year as I was deciding where to display my beautiful nativity, the place which immediately came to mind was in the front entry to our home.
 
 
 
 
I placed two lit holly trees, also from the the same darling store, as a backdrop for the nativity. Adjacent to the holy family I placed a small lighted Lennox chapel which was a Christmas gift from my mother last year, to signify the church of Christ.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I think the entry is the perfect spot for this beautiful nativity, after all this is the reason for the season.
 
Where do you usually display the nativity in your home?
 
Wishing you a blessed Christmas season.

  1. What a beautiful nativity set! I've been looking for one for a long time. All I can find are ones that are 'cute' or poorly crafted.
