#719 Karen Day Tea Set

Acquired 2015

Our friends, neighbors and renters, Tony and Karen Day, have become very special people to us. She helped hostess our Nativity Open House in 2013 and was planning to be on the set-up team for our 2015 Open House until a family emergency interrupted her plans. But she didn't forget me! As she was clearing out some of her own possessions to down-size an area of her house, in November 2015, she found this Nativity Tea Set that she has had and wanted to add it to my collection!The small plate depicts the Bethlehem background, and the sweet small ceramic pieces include Mary holding her Child, Joseph, an angel with a star, and a shepherd boy with two sheep. The little white sheep are cups which sit on two small hay style saucers.Thank you, Karen, for thinking of me and my collection!
