Day 10 in Susan’s photo challenge is “Away in a manger”.
This little manger set was in a box of odds and ends Christmas decorations I purchased at a household auction the first year we were married. I bought the box for the lights and didn’t realize it was at the bottom until I got home.
It’s a chintzy little ivory colored plastic set with gold embossing but I love it! Not because of the look but because of the memories. Since it was plastic, when the boys were little they could play with it which they did. Baby Jesus almost always turned up missing at some point during the holidays but we always found him back.
The cool thing now is to watch the Grandkids play with it. All this enjoyment for a dollar at a household auction!
