Vintage Nativity Scene Brings Warm Memories
This is the second of my four vintage nativity scenes. Previously, I posted my goofy but fun 1970s handmade bread dough nativity scene. Above, is a more polished hand carved nativity scene from 1960.
Made in Brazil, it is carved and smoothed all by hand and made from Jacaranda wood. Jacaranda wood has such a rich, red-chocolate brown color.
Every Christmas, my family would display this wonderful piece of art. Now, years later I continue the tradition and take it out each year to enjoy the warm memories.
As the owner of the GalleriaLinda Contemporary Handmade Beaded Jewelry Store, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas next week. Hug your loved ones and hold them close.
