Rick, Lizzie and I send you and yours Christmas greetings -- with a little help from Julie Andrews. (Cue the Music!)
And while you enjoy Julie's music, enjoy a look at a few of my Nativity creches.
Because, after all, the creche is really the symbol of how this holiday got started.
The one below and above was a gift from my friend Jacqie, who downsized when she moved. She remembered I liked it and I was honored and surprised when she gave it to me.
You've seen this one before -- a favorite.
Jesus seems to be missing from this one, but the decapitated shepherd's head served well enough in a pinch.
I love this small carved one I found at the East Lansing Art Festival years ago.
Here's another by the same artist.
And this one is just the three main characters but I love the rough hewn carving.
This one isn't mine (in fact, the next few aren't) -- but I wish they all were.
I love the white here. So pure looking.
And finally this one.
I leave you with Christmas greetings. And if you do not celebrate Christmas, then let me wish you a Happy Hanukkah, a Festive Festivus, a Super Solstice and MANY wishes for peace and good things during what I hope will be a Happy New Year.
