Beautiful Nativity scenes. I especially like the one from Rome.
Enjoy them, as I am sure you will.

A wonderful collection. I like the one from Rome too!

I had a one we got as a wedding gift. As I say the word "had". A few years back in one young arm swoosh a beautiful Nativity scenes stood, seconds later pieces flying in the air scattered broken on the floor. All as my heart stopped beating I managed to still smile.

Our house is not child proof and sometime I think I should post this kind of sign at our door. Smile... xo

Wow! What a wonderful idea! I hope you display all of them or maybe you rotate them year by year.
Don't forget you could knit a set! LOL!

Love your collection!! They are all so different and all lovely!
There is wonderful store in Nyack,NY, called Hickory Dickory Dock, they sell all things Christmas and clocks! A magical place, where I often get candles and sometimes treat myself to a new ornament. The owners go every year to Germany Crafts markets to buy most beautiful pieces.
