Spread the Christmas Cheer

This weekend last year Mrs 24 and I had a stall at the art market "Art at the Hart" beside the Port River. It was a lovely day. The market is held in conjunction with the "Celtica" music festival. There is a great atmosphere and we loved it there. This year we decided not to have a stall, but thought we would go have a look. One of the stalls opposite us last year was a couple who had some really beautiful things. She had quilts and he had natural/rustic wooden items. I loved a nativity that he had made, but before I could actually decide to buy it someone else did. So this year I went to see if they were there. Obviously, from the photos here, they were! And I bought a nativity from them.

I just love this nativity. It is so sweet! This year she didn't have quilts, but some rustically framed textile pictures. They were beautiful, and I wish I had more money so I could have bought one. Maybe next year! He makes all kinds of things that would look perfect in the garden too. I've included a photo of his card incase you want to get something of his for your very own.

I have been reading Chookyblue's Christmas posts (checking to see if my SSCS has arrived in the USA! It has!) and was really impressed with this post. She says we should all spread the spirit of Christmas, because we just don't know how many people we may help. So, my next thing is to make a Christmas banner!

That is a great nativity. Every year I say I'm going to buy a "real" one, not made of plastic for the kid to play with. And every year I don't buy one.
