don we now our gay apparel

Yesterday I made a quick run to a thrift store to look for a particular item - well...CATEGORY of item anyway.  I have a friend who has a collection, and I hoped to find a gift for her.  I was unsuccessful...

But I DID find this great Christmas apron, a couple of books in perfect shape (including a Curious George special edition) and the three pieces below.

Some of you know my penchant for collecting stray nativity characters.  I thought  it was "out of my system", but apparently not!

Joseph, maybe?
 I'll wear this apron (which is even brighter in person)
at noon today when I serve up some soup and sandwiches at our final
Community Advent Luncheon.
See the sheep on the shelves behind me?  Another collection of mine!


  1. lovely apron dear, I collect animals porcelain figurine :P

  2. That's a sweet apron Rebecca. Nice nativity figurines too.

    Have a lovely Christmas and a great 2012.


  3. You are up early and busy today, Rebecca. Love the white pieces of Nativity you found. Yes, Advent is drawing to a close...I fear I have not kept it as I had planned.

  4. Hi Rebecca....I think you were meant to give the stray manger figures a home. Like your apron. My grandmothers always used aprons. I love them as they make me think of those dear ladies. Take care. Susan

  5. I love the new stray manger figures... they look large..

  6. Cute apron :) :) Happy CHRISTmas to you and your family :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  7. Perfectly festive apron Rebecca! Looks like your house will be wonderfully ready for Christmas!!

  8. Rebecca , if you love something it never leaves your system. Merry Christmas Sweet Lady!

  9. I always notice nativity pieces at the thrify stores. Baby Jesus is almost always missing. I ponder this.

  10. I wonder, too, why the baby Jesus is always Middle Child questioned! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on that very topic today at Jeremiah 29:11! HOPE you have a blessed CHRISTmas, Ms. Rebecca!!!
