Lookie what my mom got me!!!!!!!!

So my mom texted me today while I was leaving work and said she had something for me, I figured it was just a candle or something random so I continued on my way home.. she proceeded to tell me that it was a Willow Tree nativity set, I just about slammed on the breaks and did a complete 360 in the middle of the highway to get to her house.

She said she was at the mall and saw it and had to get it for me, she didn't even know that I've been wanting it!!!!! She bought me the 6 piece main set and the 3 wisemen.

There are no words to describe how happy I am about this... Now I just need the Creche, the metal stars, and theres an ox and goat and the shepherd and stable animals also.

Onto some crappy pictures!


I put the tree behind it to take away from the all white background of the blinds, but I don't really care for it. I wanted to put it on my other stand but I had more room on this one.


the entire buffet.. I didnt want to put away my other figurines and was too lazy to move them elsewhere, so I just moved them around.
Close up.. I love it!


This nativity I figured I'd throw in there again.. It's a nativity set that my mom had for years, and I always used to LOVE ever since I was a little girl, I took it with me when I left home a couple years ago and will never EVER get rid of it, It will always go under our tree and the Willow Tree can go on the table/buffet or wherever.
Sorry for the crappy picture, sitting it like that on the ground was the only way I could get some semi-decent lighting for my crappy phone quality pictures. (I cant WAIT for my new camera!)
