Memories

Today I have posted some pics of our VINTAGE NATIVITY that came from Mr.CC's  family...I have another nativity but this one is so SPECIAL because it's the one that Mr.CC had in his childhood home...the memories are so wonderful. Since we lost both of his parents during our first year of  marriage, I try to keep some family treasures displayed around our home, so their memory stays with us every day. When my daughters get married and start their own families, I plan on passing on family heirlooms...I wonder which one will want this lovely nativity...I guess only time will tell!
                                                   Hope y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                        Linda









Just a little reminder...my Christmas Open House is Dec.9. I would love for you to post my party button on your sidebar and help me spread the word and if you post it...please let me know because this southern gal is big on THANK YOU NOTES!!!

Come join me for some fun here!!

Every family should have a nativity that they hand-down & treasure. We even have a Native-American nativity that has a teepee for the stable. On a side note - congrats on your little come back Friday night.

That is a very pretty naivety scene. I am sure your children will want it. Trust they all do not. That would be a problem. It is a truly blessed treasure.

NanceB said...

My family had one just like it -- think my mom still has it somewhere! LOVED seeing it again.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Linda, What a wonderful way to honor their memory and remind Mr CC of his childhood home.

I was wondering if you were about to have a heart attack in the first half of the Auburn/Al game yesterday. My hubby was so frustrated with Auburn. Luckily they improved in the 2nd half.
Hugs,
Sherry

That is such a great nativity set! I have a few of those pieces in mine, but it is a mixture of a few different sets. The creche is gorgeous.

I've got you added to my sidebar! :)

Shellbelle said...

Wonderful vintage nativity! This reminds me of the one we had when I was a child. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in the 1971 earthquake in California and had to be replaced. They always remind me of my mother, who always set up the nativity first every year.

Can't wait for your Open House, I'm going to add your button to my sidebar right now!

Merrie said...

That one is identical to my moms. She has had it as long as I can remember. I have such fond memories of moving all the figurines around, and finding them moved back later in the day. It was a ritual...back and forth, back and forth all December! Have a wonderful and blessed holiday!

Merrie said...

Oh yeah, and I will post the party button too.

Blue Creek Home said...

How special to have this nativity that means so much. It is lovely.
Al lost both of his parents when he was in college - about a year apart, so I never had the pleasure of meeting them. He doesn't have very many things from home, but we treasure those things.

How 'bout that game!!!!! The wildest one yet!
