|Claypot Nativity (on the left with the yellow star)|
|Set inherited from my grandmother. I've been told that she probably painted it herself; it was a favorite Relief Society activity several decades ago.|
|Hard to see, but ours is the 3-piece glass one in the center - a cherished gift from my in-laws.|
Here's the close-up of our clay pot nativity set for my sister. As you can see, our wise men have hands and hair (or beards), so I guess you're on your own for figuring out how to finish yours!
One of our family traditions is to have the scripture John 3:16 wrapped up and under the Christmas tree to be opened on Christmas Day. Rather than just having a piece of paper, I often attached it to a nativity set of some sort. You can imagine that we have quite a collection. Maybe one of the future posts will chronicle some more of them.
