This nativity is from Peru, the little cabinet that is displayed on was given to me at the end of my junior year of high school when I went to East. A boy in my art class had been working on it for weeks and at the end of the school year he told me I could have it. I absolutely love it and always have. It really represents the spirit of Christmas for me. I didn't really deserve the gift but he gave it to me anyway. The school mate was Monty Mealy. What great memories I have of that guy. He was always so kind and I never heard him say an unkind word.


Zulu nativity, made of fabric and seed beads.

New Mexico

I don't know why this picture is so small but anyway this an April Romo De Vivar. She is an artist from New Mexico. The set is small but not this small.

This nativity is directly from Japan. Samuel served his mission in Japan so I love everything Japanese. This set is sitting on my display table in my front room, and the other thing I love about it is the picture under the glass. It is a picture of Samuel and I the day we got married. We're doing a little kissing.

I found this carving at a flee market in San Diego. I think I paid $5.00 for it. It is absolutely beautiful. It measures about 18 inches tall and is all hand carved from Ecuador. Quite a find!
