The Manger

The simplicity of my Italian terracotta figures reflects the humble Christmas story.

I like using old and earthy elements for its setting as well.

Country figures and animals play a big part of the scene, even though I didn't include them all here.

  I enjoy the traditional story read from the beauty of the King James version which many of us rehearsed as children.

Wishing you Christmas joy!
Ciao! for now!


I'm joining Debra at Common Ground
