So I will be brief and show you a few of my favorite things.
This nativity set was purchased by me. I was only 6 years old at the time. Mom said I had saved my money for this. She took me to Milo Walz hardware store. This was a family owned business on the south side of town, mostly a German community. It cost me $6.00 in 1958.
This is our rotating tree. I only wish I had taken the time to count all the ornaments on it. There are antique German ornaments bought 20 some years ago at the Blacksmith's grandmother's auction. There are new ornaments purchased from Hobby Lobby. Many are Christopher Radko's bought over the years. A lot are gifts from family and friends. None are your typical round glass ornament. Each one is individually wrapped in tissue paper when taken off of the tree.
Hope you all have a stress free week!
