Nativity Scene Drawing/Giveaway

Please take a look at http://autumnaskswhy.blogspot.com/ to enter your Comment for a chance in the drawing for a nativity scene.

Here is what I wrote in the Comments:

Sad to say, I have ZERO nativity scenes. Zip. Zilch. Nothin'. :-( It's high time I added one, right? This one would be lovely! :-)

My 6 year old daughter picked up my oldest daughter's 2000 Millinium Baby ornament as we were decorating the tree and reverently said, "Is this the baby Jesus?" So sad. She needs a real nativity set!

My favorite set was the one my mom had when I was little. The was late 50's though the 60's. The stable had real hay glued on the roof and the little figurines of the wise men, shephards, baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, et al, were made of painted chaulk! You could pick up each one and scratch a little white powder off the bottom, if you were sneaky. :-)

In the 70's, my mom and my grandmother took a ceramics class and made LOVELY (and huge) sets that are still in use in my mom and oldest sister's homes. Who knows where the humble chaulk and hay set is?

I'm off to post to my Facebook and my blog. Thanks for entering me!

All the best from Colorado.

Hi Holly and Happy New Year! I did not know where to post this so I am leaving it here and hope that you get it. It has been two years and a few days since Brainhell died. I am grateful for all the fine messages you sent to him and his family thru his blog. I’ve stayed in touch with TLW. Droid, who I met in person for the first time at BH’s service, is a really fine guy. We exchange emails fairly regularly. Anyway, thinking of you and hope all is well on your end. jansenist
