2006 Fontanini Nativity

When we were married June 24, 1995 we received a gorgeous Fontanini Nativity set. The set included the Holy Family, Kings, shepherd and a few other items. I have since added to the set each year with a piece of two. This year we added the Inn and Inn Keeper and I could resist the little duck family.

Grandma Maher gave each of the children a piece to add for this year too plus a few extras including the grand pond and palm tree. We were tickled to have a pond for our little duck family!

For Advent we add a piece each day until Christmas. The only ones missing in this picture are the Kings of course, they (and their camel) will arrive on the Feast of Epiphany.

  1. I love Fontanni!
    I've been wanting to start collecting for years.

    This is a lovely traditional set. Your children will enjoy it for years and years to come.
