If you haven't been to Precious Moments in Carthage you really need to go when you are in the area. Their website is good but doesn't show you the true beauty of the place. I took my friend Jessica to see it for the first time. I really wanted her to like it and was worried. Once she saw the chapel she saw why I love them. I collect Precious Moments in every way imaginable. I cross stitch them, collect every type of figurine, I just LOVE them!!! Here are some pictures to tempt you to go and see them!!!!

These are the stained glass windows that show the beatitudes.

This is one of the groups of figurines that is in the display case in the chapel.

This is the ceiling....

One of the walls in the chapel

I could have put the picture I took of the wall in the chapel but I don't want to spoil the fun of seeing it. I love this place and I have the cross stitch patterns to do the windows, the murals on the wall, all that stuff. I have tons of the figurines and get a couple a year. If anyone is looking for a last minute Christmas gift you now have been reminded of one of my favorite things!!!
Oh yeah, I really want to start building my nativity scene soooooo...... Just Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus would be wonderful!!!

This is one of my favorite places. I've only been there a few times, but it's so nice to walk into that beautiful, peace-filled chapel. And that little playhouse he built for his grandchildren? Love it.
