Our Nativity

Here is our beautiful Nativity set. The camels are actually made of olive wood and were purchased in Israel. I love this set and bought it piece by piece at a time in my life when money was pretty sparse for extras.

The beautiful star was purchased on a trip I took with my parents to the mountains.

This paper mache angel is the only surviving piece from my Grandmother's Nativity Set.
