With all the hustle and bustle in preparation for the holidays, I haven’t found much time to go thrifting. In addition, my ever practical hubby reminded me that I should be buying for others, not for myself. What a Scrooge!
While running errands on my lunch hour the other day, I saw a thrift shop I hadn’t noticed before. I bet you can guess what happened. My car who had not heard what
Scrooge my hubby said, automatically turned into the parking lot and what was I to do but go in and take a look.
In keeping with the spirit of the season, I bought this darling little nativity for 75 cents! I have a small collection of nativity sets, but none of them have muted colors like this one.
The nativity set did not come with a stable so it was sitting all by its lonesome on a shelf in my den. Inspiration struck as I read Linda’s post on her blog, Coastal Charm, about the cute little stable she found at Target. It looked similar to a small wooden box I already owned, so voila, I had a stable! All I did was add some moss and a star sticker.
I love my thrifty nativity. Not bad for 75 cents!
Merry Christmas my friends! I wish you the Peace, Love, and Happiness that the true meaning of Christmas brings.
