I think you guys have probably caught on to the fact that I’m not much for traditional Christmas decor.

And so, when it comes to tabletop accents like nutcrackers, I can’t help but put my own mod spin on tradition. Hop on over to eHow for my take on updated stained + painted wooden marching men fit for this festive and fun season!
