Birdman said...

Wow! Where does she store them all? Now, that's a cool kitty!

Kate said...

Collectors are people who fascinate me because I often wonder what motivates them. This creche certainly is diffferent!

She must have such fun bringing them out each year. Like Birdman, I wonder where she stores them!

Oh my is about all I can say. Althiough I would like to see more.

Regarding your graduation comment:
I went to an all girls school and we wore uniforms so it was fun dressing differently for the pictures. You should see me in my cap and gown---I look like a true Scorpio---formidable. LOL MB

I don't envy her the dusting! Who knew Jesus was such a cool cat?

Nice "post" pun on my blog, btw-- it made me smile.

I have seen mice before but never cats. It's very cute.

Jacob said...

Okay. Why? And where does she put all these and what does she do with them?

But, seeing as how I'm full of cliches, I will happily say, "It's no skin off my nose," and "To each her own."

VP said...

That's a museum-quality collection. I wonder where she keeps all that stuff...
By the way, this one is gorgeous!

It's not exactly what most people are thinking about right now, but there was an interesting story on NPR this afternoon about how the whole creche thing was invented in 1200-something by Francis of Assisi as a teaching tool. But if something is meaningful to you, enjoy it.
