Treasure Chest Thursday - 24 December 2009
In about 1939, my mother created her own Christmas cards by taking a photo of the family nativity set (placed in the fireplace that was never used for an actual fire!). I have, not only some of those original cards, but the figurines shown here (most looking nowhere near as bright and shiny after over 70 years of use). They are still treasures to me and pulled out almost every year (though I had to replace baby Jesus' head, which met an unfortunate accident ... a Lego figure head fits perfectly!).
Merry Christmas, all!
