A Tiny Festive Matchbox

Did anyone spot this little matchbox on yesterday's post? Son 2 opened up and was determined...
... to make the very tricky little Nativity Scene stored inside it.
It tool a bit of sticky-tac but we did it!

And if you didn't see the tablecloth yesterday, you may want to know that lovely Beck sent it all the way from Australia last year...

That is the dinkiest little Nativity scene I have ever seen. I bet that required a very steady hand.

Good things come in small packages... isn't that one of those old sayings?

Cute!

That's really cute! All that in one tiny matchbox! :-)

What a sweet little creche! Nice to see kids doing something that doesn't involve electronics too.
BTW, I am looking to exchange North American mags for UK Country Living or French Marie Claire so if you might be interested, pop over and leave a comment at my http://www.quiltingwithjanet.blogspot.com

It is hard to believe that the entire scene was in that small box. Son #2 sure does have quite a bit of determination, bless his heart.

Have a nice weekend.

I absolutely adore it, and I can see it must have been fiddly on the fingers! I really enjoy nativity scenes (in any form). x
