Chalkware/Plaster Nativity


Look what I found at Goodwill today. I love the pieces. They are rather large and heavy chalkware or plaster. Don't have any idea of their age. Joseph had an accident at some time and lost his head. It has been glued back and you can see the breakline if you look closely. Since they are to be displayed on the front porch, I'm not worried. Both Mary and Joseph had a few chips. I repaired them with Sharpie pen. What we do without our Sharpies!

It's always nice to come across great finds. The nativity never goes out of style! I like the vintage ones, but I sure cringe when I see a blow up Nativity scene.

Hello! I found your pictures that you posted about the "Krayon Keeper" I would love to have the pattern. I am a VERY new sewing and thought this would be easy enough for me but still a very neat Christmas gift for all the kids this year. Thanks so much!

Don't you just love them ! I found a complete vintage Nativity set at a garage sale 2 years back and added it to my other bits and pieces I find. I collect them I guess, but yours now these are larger and very nice, lucky you !
