This is my most treasured Christmas collection. It’s a tiny–seriously it’s only 4 inches across in this scene–pewter nativity scene that was hand-crafted in Nova Scotia. It means a lot to me, because I grew up in the United Church, and the real meaning of Christmas for me is the celebration of Jesus’ birth. Although we don’t attend church any more, it still has a place in my heart and it’s woven into my very fibre.
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and Jennifer figured, “Hey! I haven’t used my camera in a long time. Why not start blogging again?” So here I am. Back at it. Pestering you poor people of the internet with my incessant stream of photos.
I just picked up this exquisite tiny Nativity scene at one of my favourite village stores, Romancing the Home in Ocean Park. They’re handcrafted with lead-free pewter in Nova Scotia, and 10 percent of the profits go to charity. I’m madly in love with it. It’s seriously about four inches across, and I have it on my kitchen window sill so we get to see it all the time. It’s important for my family to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
