One day while touring Epcot, I saw an artisan making these silhouettes sans the wiseman. I asked him about it and he told me that he would be adding a piece each
year. I bought the set and the following year, I emailed him about the wiseman. A few weeks later I received the wiseman in the mail free of charge. He told me that he had forgotten his intention and thanked me for reminding him by gifting the wiseman to me.
In Argentina there is a small little town not far from where we lived in San Isidro. Many weekends there was a small street fair on the riverbanks. Local artisans sold their wares as well as handcrafted items from around the country. This is a small puzzle screen of various woods.
In 2005, our family went to visit Doug's brother, Kyle and his family when they were doing an assignment for the military in Anchorage. They recommended that we spend some time fishing. We had a very rocky day at sea. I wonder that I lived to tell the tale. But, Doug pulled out enough halibut to fill the quota for himself as well as Brianna and I. Later, I found this igloo nativity in a small store on "The Spit."
Melanie started giving me the pieces to the Willow Tree nativity for my birthday when she lived in Utah. When I visited her, she showed me the stable piece that a local person had designed. The Willow Tree group ended up selling a much different kind of piece the following year, which is great, but I have always loved the one I got. It is up high on top of my television hutch, so it was hard to get a good picture of it.
On a crooked, narrow road between Burgess Hill and Brighton is the small shoppe of a potter. One day on a whim she took the handles from a pot and molded them into the Holy Family. Then she put them in her window for a holiday dressing. I stopped. And she sold them to me. Clayton, England
