“Once in royal David’s city stood a lowly cattle shed . . .”
Tiny crèche scenes! I can’t resist them.
This Japanese-made wooden one might not qualify as exactly “tiny”: it’s a whopping 9 inches across.
But it has everything a proper crèche needs.
A mature-looking Joseph, with a quizzical cow.
A young Mary in a blue mantle, with a watchful donkey who doesn’t care that he’s lost a bit of one ear.
And of course the baby, who never seems to be swaddled in these things.
Don’t forget the star! This one is tattered cardboard that was heavily glittered. It’s held up by a wobbly brad on one end and one of the miniature lights on the other.
That’s all for today’s mouse-sized merriment, folks!
