Can you believe it? There’s not a single Nutcracker in the ridiculous amount of Christmas decorations I own. Not one.
Oh, I’ve been tempted many times, but I have this idea that unless I own THREE of something, it’s not a collection… and if I’m going to have one nutcracker, I’d like a collection. See the problem?
And so, several years ago, I was a good little girl and decided I would not start another collection.
May I just tell you that I think nutcrackers are really amazing? They’re colorful, and stoic, and handsome… and they stand (stately, of course) in such wonderful contrast to cutesy elves and snowmen.
With nutcrackers, you just add a little greenery and a variety of ornaments, and the decorating is done. Does it get any easier? I’m thinking nutcrackers should have been my first collection…
Do you have a nutcracker collection? How do you display them?
