Manger from the heart Christmas

Manger from the heart  Christmas
My uncle Vinny owned a furniture business. He made this when he was in his 30's. He died an untimely death in his mid 40-s. This creche has been in my family since then and I was always in charge of decorating it. It is simple and I love the simplicity.

My mom and dad are gone and now it is in my home. I have been decorating it since I was about 11 years old or for 59 years. Every year with reverence and memories of my family and my Uncle Vinny. Some of the figurines are 50 years old like the angel with the broken wing and the little lamb and some are new - within the last 20 years. Tee hee.

Merry Christmas to all.

Oh I love these Christmas settings (creche? new word learned!) =)

My brother's Spanish wife have told me in Catalonia they add a little humour, and hide there somewhere a figurine called "caganer": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caganer

Happy holidays Coco =)
