The Christmas Entryway

Good Morning!
We are really in the down swing now.
Less than 1 week until the big day!

I was thinking that I probably should have
started my Christmas tour with the entryway,
but oh well, what's done is done.

In my front entryway, 
just between my living and dining room,
stands a little bookcase.

It is here that I have nestled my one and only Nutcracker.

He is a very special Nutcracker because he was a Christmas gift from my son.
When my son was very young, my husband took him out shopping, 
and he selected this Nutcracker all by himself,
especially for me.


I have always displayed this Nutcracker here, 
but this year, I nestled him inside a vintage suitcase.


I think it shows him off quite well.

With all the Christmas decor I have, it's the pieces like
this one that mean so much to me,
and I imagine they always will.

I'm just about ready to wrap up the Christmas tour.
The kitchen is up next!

As always, thanks for joining me here @ Random Thoughts.

Sweet boy!
But then with a big heart father and great taste mother... the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree.
I love nutcrackers. And I have none. One day who knows I might convince myself I need some ahahah they're so happy and fun inducing.

Lovely Vignette Gina! What a Wonderful Welcome your family and friends receive in your sweet home.

Enjoy,
Teresa

This is a truly creative idea, Gina! I would say thinking outside of the box but it's actually inside the box! Ha ha! I love nutcrackers but my daughter was really frightened of them as a toddler. Now that I think of their mouths...

I really do love your foyer in spite of the jokes. Merry Christmas to you!
