Small ornament

Hand made cloth

The Indian ones I have reflect part of my Hubby and Children's heritage

My dear friend made this one about 15 or so years ago

My SIL made this one

My Hubby got me this one

My SIL made this one too

This one is unique clay like look it is plastic and sweet

My SIL made this one too she is so talented

My SIL made this one too

and this one

Santa w/ Baby Jesus I used to not be sure if I liked the 2 together but I really do

The lladro my son brought from Italy

And this book w/ cookie cutters just makes me cry every time. I bought it after Christmas in 1997 to give to my sweet MIL the next Christmas but.... she died in September of 1998 and when we got out our Christmas decorations that year and I found it I sobbed. I have always just kept it in the packing boxes... I hope to get it out in the future when I have grandchildren in my family to share it with.:>

Very cool nativities!! What a neat thing. I bought this nativity from Costco for $18 and it's the whole city of Bethlehem with the Nativity as the main focus. Sits on top of my piano. I love it.
