I am mad about nutcrackers I think that they are so cute and festive. I really wish I was artier to make this wine goblet as it is beautiful but I dont think my skill set will stretch that far. The colours are beautiful in it as well. I just need to get my thinking cap on to who I know that is arty enough to make this for me
