the nativity + serrv.org

i am not a particularly religious person, but i have always been drawn to the nativity scene. some of it may be nostalgia, as my grandmother had a beautiful nativity scene complete with wooden crèche that i found facsinating as a child. i don't have one myself, but i decided this year i am going to purchase one for next season. and that leads me to serrv.org--a nonprofit organization with a mission to eradicate poverty wherever it resides by providing opportunity and support to artisans and farmers worldwide. their catalog/website has some of the most beautiful and affordable handcrafts. among these treasures is the most amazing selection of nativities. i've highlighted a few of my favorites here but be sure to check out serrv.org for yourself. there is something for every style made from every material you can imagine. you won't want to miss it!
