Nativity Creches from around the world

Last New Year's Eve I visited the The Washington D.C. Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They had a lovely display of nativity creches from around the world. Each set was beautiful. Many different techniques and materials were used. The contrasts were so much fun to see.
I loved the little felted people and animals
The Temple is quite impressive

Beautifully painted ceramics
The grounds of the Temple were decorated for Christmas.

The Alaskan cabin was so cute with it's moose and dog sled

This set was made of glass beads

I love this Mexican set with the colourful painting. I have a similar one.

This Mexican set was beautiful too.

This set was fun.

This sweet little needlework set caught my fancy

So beautiful
