Yesterday at church we had a Thanksgiving leftovers potluck. We used to have the potlucks monthly, on the first Sunday of the month, but in the latter part of the year people started forgetting, so now we have them quarterly. Last night I put my kitty Nativity scene on the top of my dresser, with a few items I include--a cut glass perfume bottle, a candle with candy canes in it, and on the wall above I put up some pins and an ornament from years past. When I start getting Christmas cards, they'll go on the wall as well.
I bought the kitty Nativity scene years ago when I was in York, PA with mom. I went to a cat show at the York Fairgrounds, there a lady was selling it--the whole set for $65. She even threw in a tiny white Persian cat figure for free. The last time I was able to check the value, the angel figure alone was worth $65. That didn't include the cloud pillar she stands on. But earlier this year, I tried to check it out, and the company--Noah--no longer exists. There is another company of the same name that makes similar Nativity scenes, but when I asked, they said no, we're not the makers of your set; our company didn't exist when you bought it. Finally, I did a search for cat Nativity scenes, and a seller in Tennessee had one exactly like mine on Etsy. But it's been sold already. I wish I had a digital camera so I could take a picture of my set and share it with you all.
