2nd Time Around: Navtivity

Jackson 005


Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

Since I’ve opened my booth at the antique mall, I’m always seeing things I would love to have as you might suspect! This large nativity was a recent purchase from a booth next to ours. The lady that operates this booth works in the store every Monday, and often that is the day I drop by to add new things.

I’ve always wanted a big nativity and this one was 1/2 price. What is it about those words that make us think we are getting a bargain? This set was priced at $34 and I got 1/2 off-so I don’t think it was much of a bargain, but every now and then we have to splurge-right???

Here are some closeups that feature the details. This year I think it will be on the sideboard! Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning Diane. All is well today, my typepad is working. I fought with them all day yesterday. They did help me solve my problems and I finally posted in the afternoon.
We arrived home from Fl late Sun. night. The gators won their big game and are unbeaten 12/0. My gator family is very happy. Now, a try for the National Championship.

I think your nativity is wonderful. I think you did get a bargain with those lovely pieces. Enjoy them.

I hope you don't mind if I featured my sister's Christmas antiques for sale. I am running out of things to share. I need to go to Good Will soon!!!

have a great day. Find those bargains.

Love, Jeanne

Beautiful nativity. I love things with a "history," and I enjoy imagining who owned it before me, and how much they must have enjoyed it.

I hope to join in with the SECOND TIME AROUND fun next week.
