Show and Tell Friday- Christmas revisited

Today is show and tell Friday. Head over to Kelli's blog, There is No Place Like Home, and see what everyone else is sharing today!
We only have a few nativities that we put out at Christmas time. The one I want to show you today is our newest one, my DH found it at a local thrift store, and it is really fun.

One of the things I like about this nativity set is the adorable faces. I don't know if these were handmade, or bought somewhere. The green-tone of the glaze is unusual, but I like it a lot.

Overall, I'd say DH did well on this purchase. This will be something we will enjoy every time we get it out for the holidays.
