My daughter loves the Nutcracker Ballet. She has always wanted a nutcracker. She was at Lowe's with her dad and asked him to buy this nutcracker. As you can see, he didn't say "no." I like nutcrackers, but he just didn't seem to go anywhere in my kitchen which is where she wanted him to be. Then I had a light bulb moment. I took the old clear glass bottles that I had gotten long ago from my grandmother's junk pile. I used food coloring and water to give them a festive look. I stuck the Nutcracker in between the bottles. I was pleased with our kitchen window decoration. It cost us about $8 for the Nutcracker and the food coloring. The bottles of colored water act like sun catchers and are truly bright and beautiful. I did have to warn my children NOT to drink the colored water. My teenagers were just sure I had come up with some great concoction!!
grace and peace,
