Fontanini Nativity - Carmelite Monastery

A favorite Christmas memory is browsing in the Carmelite Monastery Gift Shop, Jackson, MS. The gift shop is open year round; however, between Thanksgiving and Christmas the shop is whirl wind of activity. This is one of the most beautiful shops I can recall being in.
This next one is the Nativity contained inside a lovely tear drop glass. The ornament is meant for the year. Not this year. Cha Cha required non-breakable ornaments. Although she has done amazingly well leaving the tree standing.

Should you be in Jackson, MS make the Carmelite Monastery a must see. The nuns bake fabulous Rum Cakes. Grab a few as soon as you get to the kitchen area. The cakes will be long gone if you don't.
