I love your nutcrackers. Such an interesting Christmas tradition. We have just one, a soldier whose flossy white beard now juts out in funny directions, but the grandkids are fascinated.

My Aunt collected nutcrackers. I always smile when I see them. I loved her very much.
Merry Christmas,

What a pretty Christmas scene you have. I, too, collect Nutcrackers....however I seem to be putting out fewer and fewer of them each year. I love being able to admire yours.

A beautiful tree...and your nutcracker collection is awesome.
One Christmas, about 4 yrs ago, I joined in on a blogging Christmas swap. After browsing the blog of the lady I would swap with, I discovered she loved and collected nutcrackers. I knew then just what to buy for her. She did the same on my blog and discovered I was collecting Mark Roberts Fairies...she sent me one. Sooo, both of us was thrilled to pieces.
Have a wonderful Christmas, dear one.

Your tree is very pretty all decked out with tinsel and everything. This reflects someone's great patience. Nutcrackers are so fascinating. You have quite a variety there...Is the Cowardly Lion also a nutcracker? Pinocchio, too?

Terra said...

Vee, yes, Pinocchio and the Cowardly Lion are nutcrackers too. I chose the Lion because he reminds me of Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia.
Pinocchio was handpainted by a homebound senior citizen who I visited as a volunteer visitor. We became good friends and she gave it to me, so I treasure it.

Oh I love your nutcrackers! I just picked one up earlier this year at a thrift store that is silverplated. I had never seen one before. They make such a beautiful display. Hope your Christmas was lovely!
