Thomas Kinkade Crystal Nutcracker
Bringing Music & Theater to the Home
The Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas Crystal Nutcracker Figurine
In 2012 my sister's husband went home to the Lord. By the time it came to thinking about Christmas, she wasn't ready for all she needed to do. That's when she asked me if I could help her select some items for the family. One person she needed to shop for was her mother-in-law, but she had no idea what to get her. I knew a little about her background and some of her interests, but needed some more details.
My sister's in-law isn't an ordinary type lady that dotes over grandchildren or socializes in trendy circles. This lady, Aphie, is an active, vibrant 84 year old that still does about everything you can imagine including dance. One thing that stood out in my thoughts is what my sister said this Greek woman does every Christmas, and has done for the past 25 years. She participates in the local theater's community playhouse performance of The Nutcracker.
With this new information in mind I remembered that I had seen this beautiful crystal nutcracker in the Thomas Kinkade line from the Bradford Exchange. I told my sister all about it and gave her the details. Both of us felt it would be perfect for Aphie, and we were right. She absolutely loves it and shows it off to her houseguests.

Beautiful Nutcracker Centerpiece
A Christmas Surprise
Beautiful Thomas Kinkade Victorian Crystal Nutcracker Centerpiece.
On Christmas Day the crystal nutcracker figurine was unveiled and immediately placed on the family dining table. It was the perfect size and added a touch of ambiance with the LED lighting.
After Christmas the crystal nutcracker never went into storage for the next season. It is now in a prominent place in the dining room and is on display all year long.
