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.

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.

The crystal nutcracker is current sold out!

Sed-me wishing you a happy belated birthday! They both like nutcrackers, so it was a fitting gift. Got her a mini one this year. Thanks for visiting.

Elisabeth Ellis from Nashville, TN. on December 16, 2014:

How funny. I picked this hub b/c I have always loved Thomas Kinkade. However your sis in law sounds like my mom and the nutcracker went up for sale... a year ago today, which is my birthday. :)

Sylvestermouse I'm looking for more items like this for my sister's mother-in-law. She loved her nutcracker. Thanks for visiting me. Hope you're getting some rest.

Beautiful nutcracker, wonderful story!

Ruthi on December 16, 2013:

The Kinkade Crystal Nutcracker was certainly the perfect gift choice and I can see it as a lovely year-round display. Your sister is lucky to have had you around to help her through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
