some Christmas favourites

I wanted to show off the creche that my husband made from cedar.  He made this when we lived in BC and cedar was readily available.  I just love the aroma that arises when I unpack it and I love the simplicity of the design.  Regrets that I can't take a better photo.

Some prims, some birds, some santas,  etc. in the basket my husband made.

 My very own mouse - can you see her tail peeking out from under her dress on the right side (facing)?

This plastic canvas Gingerbread House was made many, many years ago.  I made one for each of my children for their families and one for us.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog Kate :-) I love all your decorations and yes I can see that cute Miss Mouse's tail peeping out; she's beautifully dressed too! The creche/Nativity that your husband made is exquisite! Your gingerbread house looks so bright and cheerful and it's lovely that your family each has one too...such a nice tradition.
