Most of these Baby Jesus figures were won on ebay along with the vintage Noma Angel tree toppers except for the Angel in the middle with the flowered dress. She sat atop our tree all the years of my childhood. Somewhere along the way she lost her halo, gown, and wings, so my Mom had fashioned her a halo and wings from cardboard and covered them both with tin foil, and she made her dress from scrap material.
The Baby Jesus in the wooden manger in front of our family Angel was my grandmother's. She said it was in her family for as long as she could remember. He is a wax figure and He was made in Germany. They are two of my Christmas treasures.
The little brown Baby Jesus in front of the Angel with the blue dress to the right is one of my ebay wins. I really loved His primitive look. When my grandson Jayden picked it up he said it felt like a rock, and he asked me if I liked it because it looked like a rock and I told him yes. Later that same day Jayden came into the house with two rocks (one hollowed out and shaped much like a little bowl and the other shaped much like a babe in swaddling clothes) and he said to me, "Umma, here's another rock Baby Jesus for your collection!"
So I sit my 'rock' Baby Jesus right alongside my stone Baby Jesus each year! Another Christmas treasure!
