"Blue Monday" Nativity Set
Thank you Hostess Sally for hosting "Blue Monday" for some fabulous inspirational ideas and fun!...

Be sure and visit the other participants at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/

Since it is so close to Christmas I thought I would show my Nativity Set, because Joseph and Mary and some of the Wise Men are wearing blue cloaks and clothes.

This Nativity Set is made out of crepe paper. It is very special to me because my Mom [RIP] bought it for me a long time ago. I wanted it but was newly married and on a budget at that time so she went out of her way and purchased it for me. I always remember it when I put it out on the Holidays.
Baby Jesus.

Virgin Mary.

I love the detail and expression on Mary's face........she really looks like she is praying.

Joseph just looking on.
