Advent Calendar - December 9 - Nativity Scene

Today is Grab Bag day at (a group of worldwide genealogist writing about their family history) the prompts or suggested ideas for the month related to the Advent season. This is my fifth (hopefully not last) post using the Advent prompts.

Our prompt for today is: 
Grab Bag

I'm doing it on my beautiful Avon Nativity Scene...I started collecting these in the early 1980's.  I've got the main set but am missing some of the miscellaneous pieces.  There are a total of 23 pieces to complete the set. I've got 15 pieces. Two of my pieces have been broken over the years (the angel on the far right broke this year).  I'm missing a total of 8 pieces to compete the set.  Some day I may purchase these, one at a time.  I googled the missing pieces and it will cost me almost $550 to purchase them.

I have the main pieces of the scene...after all even if I just have Jesus that's all that counts.  He IS the reason for the season!

  1. Thanks for sharing your beautiful collection.

  2. It's a beautiful set. There must be something about Nativity sets that makes it difficult to have/keep all the pieces.
