Day 23....

Day 23...
'tis the reason for the season...
I collect Nativity Scenes and here is a sampling of my favorites from around our home.

First Nativity

Hearth Nativity

HSE Nativity

Little People Nativity

Round Nativity


 Until tomorrow....
I'll be keeping my hands to work..
my heart to God..
while treating my neighbor with kindness and respect, 
and trying to be the best me I can be.
It's hard, isn't it?
I may stumble and I may fall, but I pick myself up and I remember:
To thine own self be true...
I want to BE the change I want to SEE.
Join me!

I am blessed...

Merry Christmas,
Vonna xxxx

  12. They are wonderful, especially the Peanuts collection. A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of our favorites at Christmas. Linus explains things perfectly

  13. Such a nice variety of nativity scenes. And so many different styles. The stitched one is a real beauty.
    When I was a child my family lived in the same house as my grandparents. And my grandfather always put up a very old nativity scene which was made by one of my grandmother's ancestors, and everything was handmade. I loved watching my grandfather putting it up. It's one of my nicest childhood Christmas memories.

  14. They are all beautiful

  15. What beautiful Nativities you shared, Vonna! The Charlie Brown one made me smile. I love the one you stitched.

  16. The are wonderful. So happy to see this post. I had forgotten I have the Fisher Price one. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  17. Nice collection..Merry Christmas!

  18. What a great thing to collect!

  19. You have such beautiful decorations! Thank you so much for sharing! Also I ordered some peacemaker needles on your recommendation and I have to say you are right they are truly amazing. I can't believe how smooth they feel going through the fabric.
    Have a blessed Christmas,

  20. Hi Vonna,
    I love your Nativity scenes collection, I do mine Nativity this afternoon, it comes from my parents and grand-parents, so I love it :)

    Merry Christmas to you and all your family and friends and God bless you

  21. The nativities are lovely. I especially like the round one. I've never seen one like it before. And the Peanuts one is special...I am such a huge fan. Merry Christmas!

  22. What a great collection. I have the stable that was in my family for as long as I can remember. It means so much to me. It is always one of the first things I put up for Christmas.

  23. I also collect nativity scenes, my favorite is one from my childhood. Not expensive but priceless to me. I love the stitched nativity scene, who is it by?

  24. Nice collection. I bet you love unpacking each one and having a memory come back that's associated with it.

  25. Such a nice and varied collection of Nativities, Vonna! I only have one, but I treasure it as it was a gift from my mom... handcarved in the mountains of Italy.

  26. A beautiful collection.

    Happy Christmas to you all!

  27. I thought of collecting them, and purchased a couple of 'new' ones last year... Ended up giving one away, and using the other one. However, this year, I just wanted to go back to my original, simple, elegant one... so gave the other one away too! Sticking with what I like (today...Ha!) How many do you have in all! What you showed were just a few of your collection... yes?

  28. I collect nativities too - loved seeing yours.
