The Tucson Museum of Art is not just an art museum,theofficial name is the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block. Many people come and visit the art museum but do not include a tour of the Corbett House. “The Corbett House, an elegant two-story, stucco-covered brick structure built in the mission revival style…the house features an extensive collection of beautiful and unique decorative objects from the Arts and Crafts era.” But to me, one of the hidden treasures is the tiny diorama that retells the Christmas Story. It is called the El Nacimieto (the birth) and is open from mid-November to March. It is tucked away in the La Casa Cordava (part of the Museum’s “historic block”). Many people miss this diorama, but it is something that you can stand and view for a long time, trying to take in everything it shows. Many of the scenes are from Mexican daily life. The picture at the top is from the musuem’s webpage. It is something you have to see in person to really get the feeling of the diorama.
One of the hidden treasures for sale at LuckySammyJewelry.Com are my rosary bracelets. These are economical and truly rare. A rosary bracelet is a one-decade rosary worn on the wrist containing one Our Father bead and ten Hail Mary beads and includes a small crucifix and medal. Wearing this on your wrist provides a reminder to pray the rosary. The beads in this bracelet are similar to the fried marbles that were popular so long ago. The beads are pink, blue, yellow, green and clear. This bracelet has a magnetic clasp that makes it easy to wear. It is 8 1/2 inches long and weighs approximately 5/8 ounce.
