I’ve also got quite a few nativity sets and again they don’t all come out every year. Here is a matryoshka doll also known as Russian nesting doll or babushka doll. The biggest or outside doll is all three kings in one doll, and then there are Joseph, Mary, an angel, a donkey and the Christ Child.
This is a Celtic style stone nativity set, reminiscent of the Lewis chess set.
If you read my other blog you will know that each Monday I have been writing about my Advent calendar. This will stay up until Christmas Eve when it will be replaced by a larger set which I’m not going to show you just yet but this figure of a pregnant woman is in the same range and reminds me that no matter how many decorations go up, it is still Advent.
