"The nutcracker sits under the holiday tree, a guardian of childhood stories. Feed him walnuts and he will crack open a tale..." - The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
Sometimes it's nice to see more "homey" images on the blog. Not that these homes aren't attractive...but let's be real people, how many homes are really ready for Architectural Digest every day? It's good to take a break from the Pinterest perfection every now and then :)
Take a look at some of these images to help getting you in the holiday spirit! We have a couple of nutcrackers over our mantle. Do you have any decorating your home?
During this time of the year, The Nutcracker is a popular production. I used to go to the Nutcracker Luncheon as a young girl, but it has been years since I have seen the show. I often forget the actual story of the Nutcracker (originally called The Nutcracker and the King of Mice), so I think it can be helpful to getting a little recap. See the Nutcracker Ballet summary of the story.
Wishing you Christmas Eve dreams of sugar plum fairies...
