Before They Go Into Hiding....

There wasn't much Xmas decorating going on around here, but just before I left for TX these arrived and I must share them before I put them away ...
This wonderful Williraye Santa with Chickadees is my newest favorite Xmas figurine. I am all about the birds at Xmas and this one matches my other birdie things, LOL!
I also love one piece Nativity sets. This might be a bit strange to some but here's my reasoning. One piece, one hand. You can dust under them with one hand, you can pick them up with one hand, you can wrap them in one paper, get it? Practicality, LOL! They also fit in small places and my house is defined by its itty-bitty size. Thank God for vertical space! This cutie replaces one I had but didn't love. This one is sooo cute. Love the sheep! B=)

Oh Brenda sweetie...
These are just precious. It is ashame that you are already going to have to put them up when you just got them? I guess next year you will have to get them out a little early, so they get their fare share of the year hu?

I too like the idea of all three being connected as one. Love it.
The detail is exquisite, and what a great choice in the two pieces.

Thanks for sharing. I so love it when you do. Stop by and say hi, I would so love the company.

Country hugs...Sherry

Am loving the concept of single figurine nativities. This may well have sparked something off .....

It will be GORGEOUS...someday! I am the QUEEN of unfinished! Thanks for stopping over and saying Hi...I look forward to watching your blog...it's wonderful.

Hi Brenda,
If the nativity scene is put together as well as yours, its so much nicer and handier (and you won't lose bits).
Its truly lovely
Hugs,
Sharon

I have a santa similar to that, but from debbie mumm, found it in a thrift for 75 cents, lol. I do love nativities too and that is a unique one.

I know what you mean bout the dusting and that does make it nice. Just pick it up and swish.. I would love to have a place to leave my santa's out all year..
