Satchmo decided to make Madeleine's handmade creche scene his bed, right below the gold fimo star and the tiny angel in her pink mini-dress-- you can't see her behind the cat, but she's there in the handpainted blue sky. After a few days, we rescued Joseph, Mary and the baby, plus the fimo sheep and ironically a fimo cat (Madeleine made this scene two years ago.) When Satchmo seemed permanently installed on the bookshelf, I swapped the creche-box with a different shoe-box with a tiny bit more room, and a layer of warm wool.
He's hiding less, and is mighty playful. And very, very pretty.
