I have been on the hunt for the perfect nativity set forever.
You see, it had to be just perfect. Plain. Simple. Beautiful. And most importantly, I wanted one that I can add to, so I can collect a piece each year.
Last year, while blog hopping, I saw the Willow Tree nativity set on some ones blog. It could not have been more perfect. And even better we get Willow Tree stuff here, in South Africa. So I thought I was sorted. Not really. Every single shop I went to, did not stock it. They had every other item, just not the Nativity Set. I knew if I asked them to order it for me, it would just be too expensive. I eventually gave up and decided to look for an alternative.
Up until two weeks ago….
During our weekly family Sunday lunch, my Dad walks out with a box under each arm. You guessed it….he had ordered my sister and I a nativity set each.
I could not believe it. I literally jumped around like a five year old!
He had heard me groaning and whining about how I can never find the set, so he ordered it through a shop that he goes to often. So he does listen to me sometimes :-) or most probably just to get me to shut up.
Thanks Mom and Dad! I am so in love with it. Don't you think its beautiful?
I now just need to find the perfect spot for it.
