My Nativity set


My nativity set. 

I've had them forever.

I have absolutely no idea where this set came from, but I call it my little mexican nativity set. 

I often wonder if I got it when I lived in Albuquerque.

Who am I kidding.  I'm clueless.





Only one of the people has their eyes open and it's this guy.  

Well, the bunny has her eyes open, but she isn't an original piece to this set.

I bet you couldn't tell, though.  Bunny fits right in :)





Every year I have re-remember that those are not pot holders on this poor girl's hands. 

Can you say baby lambs or is that redundant?  How about baby sheep?  also known as lambs. 

Anyway, she's carrying little white animals...sheepish type animals.


I'm just assuming they are babies because she's one of the smaller girls in the set and if they were sheep, I don't think they'd look like pot holders!

Oh Goodness!  I just realized something.  I have one of the little girls holding a sheep standing next to Joseph.  I have Mary standing bhind potholder girl. 

Good thing I'm not getting graded on this.

Merry Christmas.

What a great little set!

I saw Bunny RIGHT AWAY and was hoping you were giving us a TEST to see if we'd spot her!

Merry Christmas, Friend!

OMG! Sweetgreenbunny looks PERFECT in your creche (that is what I grew up calling it)! She is darling! And LOL that Mary is not next to Joseph...maybe they are fighting...she can't blame him for the pregnancy! hahahahaha

It's very sweet. I had a big laugh when I saw the bunny. That little guy is the cutest thing.

I love this nativity set .. is it wooden? I can't believe you don't remember where you got it. Little Green Bunny could do her own post on your blog of all her adventures! I think she's a she.

You're right, you only would get a B-, I think.

It is a very sweet set, though, and God loves bunnies too, I think.

My favorite set of mine, has just Joseph holding the baby Jesus, an angel, and Mary, sitting on one side of her bottom, leaning backwards on one hand---the way post-partum moms are prone to do.

Hi Kristen, I had a set just like this one when I was growing up. (1970-1990). My grandma gave it to my parents and it was the one I got to set up and play with. Recently my mom moved into a retirement center and had to downsize. The nativity set was accidentally given to Goodwill. We searched for it but we were too late. I was devastated. :( Do you know where I can find another one? I have searched the Internet but only found your picture. Are there any markings on it that indicate where it is from? Would you be willing to sell it? I appreciate your time.
Thanks,
Nancy
