Piano & Nativities

This is the piano at night. Our white natvity is in the middle with the stacking plate centerpiece on the left and a jar full of ornies and miniature nativity on the right.
I have a nativity collection and that collection is scattered all over the house. This is 2 of them.

Filled with all the leftover white decor things.

Tiny nativity under a bell
Nativity from Isreal Made From Olive Wood
Nativities from Granada (aunt) , Bolivia (dd#1) , Mexico (f&m inlaw) and a friend in Wisconsin
Nativities from Russia (dd #2), New Mexico (son) , Lithuania(dd #3) , Costa Rica (dd#2) , glass (dd#1), the Salt Lake Airport (dd#1) and my dad. The carved one my dad put a down payment on in Sept of 1992. He passed away in March 1993. The man who made the nativity called me in September of 1993 and asked if I wanted the nativity my dad had made a payment on. He knew my dad had died and knew my dad had planned to give that to me for Christmas. Of course I did! It is a special piece that I dearly love.

So many beautiful nativity scenes. Each of them has its own charm but I'm sure they're all very special for different reasons. :)

Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much for coming by and leaving your sweet comments about my home! We both love to decorate! I love the stacking plate tree idea - I have close to a dozen tiered plates and will have to try this idea!!

Paula,
That tiered serving dish is just gorgeous. I need to go out and find one for next year and do it up right away!

Thanks for sharing your creative ways to decorate.
