Since then I've found a few other Nativity scenes that I've added to my "collection". It's hard to find good ones that don't cost a fortune or aren't too big to display in a smallish house. This was the next one I found and I don't remember where we got it. But I like it's simplicty.
This is one of my favorites. It was made by my dear friend, Jill, and was a Christmas gift about 10 years ago.
I had another one that I loved that Jessi made out of Fimo when she was in middle school, but she's taken that with her... :)
This one is the most unique ones I've ever seen. We purchased it at an import store, it's made out of stone and I can't even imagine how the crafter managed to get so much implied detail out of such a tiny object. It measures only 1/2" by 1/2".
If I had the ability to travel, it would be fun to collect different Nativity sets from different countries because each would come with its own cultural influence! I love this season and all the varied ways we can keep in the forefront of our minds the reason for celebrating it!
