Of course, all this preparing has me thinking of the Christ child, the infant. Although it's impossible to understand fully the mystery of Christ's coming, that he chose to begin his journey as an infant completely reliant on humans is an enigma that I find fascinating and beautiful.
As such, I love nativity sets. My family has one, of course, and it's a huge part of our holiday tradition, but I love to look at the artistry of other (much more extravagant) sets. So I thought I'd share some pins with you. Some are elaborate and expensive; some are simple and handmade, some are somewhere in the middle. But they are all beautiful, and my thoughts are that you can also look at how they are supported with unusual or everyday pieces that work as bases and backgrounds.
