away in a manger...

I was supposed to be out with the girls tonight but sadly, I'm at home fighting off a cold. I'm determined to not let it get the better of me so I'm medicating myself and resting. I'm pretty exhausted and will be heading to bed soon. But before I do, here are some pictures of the gorgeous nativity scene that Christine & Stewart gave us for Christmas.

Not being a very religious person, the nativity scene was not a part of my Christmas decor. Honestly, I find most of them rather tacky. But this one is absolutely beautiful! I don't know who the artist is, but Christine found it somewhere in Waterloo, Ontario and there are quite a few ceramic artists in that area. I love the modern feel of this set. It's almost a shame that I'll be packing it up to sit in a box for the next 11 months.

I'm off to bed. Night all.

Those are really nice. It's odd to see a nativity set that isn't completely childish or overly tacky.

We had a set over Christmas, partly due to my irish Catholic grandma visiting, and it's made of a lots of different sets. We had two Baby Jesus's...Jesi?

Elizabeth, that site rocks! I remember looking at it last Christmas and laughing my ass off. Personally, I love the ducks on the Dec 5, 2004 post.

That site is fantastic! Thanks for the link.
My fave has to be the nativity cooking timer. When it beeps your Saviour is ready!
