Nativity Sets

The Missus collects and makes Nativity sets, all of which make their appearance in the Yuletide season.  Here are but a few of the collection.

This one wins for querkiest - Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus 'smores.
The first one the Missus made - fired bisque
Another of the Missus' creations - the round part in the middle is a turntable that turns on a music box mechanism, while playing Away In a Manger.  The figures around the outside of the turntable rotate around Mary, Joseph and the baby.
A Christmas present from the Eldest to her mother a few years back.  Handmade Fimo (coloured modelling clay) figurines.
