My Nutcracker Collection

While Crystal was at my house this past weekend helping me "wallpaper" the kitchen, I asked her to snap some photos of my Nutcracker Collection to share with you.

Look at these amaaaaaazing pictures!

All photography by Crystal Ku

I almost wept looking at these. She really captured the beauty of my collection, didn't she? Carter will attest to my complete devotion to these colorful wooden men, and truly nothing makes me happier at Christmas than setting them out on display. I will cherish these photos.

As you can see, I went with boxwood greenery around my mantel this year and I really like how it turned out. My tree is once again shining with a collection of green, ivory and metallic ornaments and topped with (faux) poinsettia stems. 

I hope you liked seeing my Nutcracker Collection as much as I like showing it!

And, if you are local to the DC area, Crystal takes some truly wonderful family photography (her specialty). Contact her if you are interested in a session!

  5. I have considered starting a Nut Cracker collection. There are so many amazing ones that I have seen over the years and currently on shelves.

    The wallpaper is fantastic.
