    :holly: Nutcrackers

    Does anyone here collect xmas nutcrackers? I do. I have since I was 11 or so, and I've accumulated nearly 20 to date. Some fit in the palm of my hand and others stand nearly 3.5 feet tall. My favourite one is a German nutcracker my mom bought for me a few years back. Maybe I'll post some pics of my collection one of these days.

    I do not collect too, I wish I did!!

    How funny, a close friend of mine sent me 3 days ago, a dvd with the Nutcracker + Xmas Carol, in one ballet performance..
    I loved the combination of those two stories, can you imagine Scrooge and Clara dancing together?

    Anyway, we are awaiting for your photos, as, Nutracker is one of my fav Christmas stories, too..

    I do have a small collection of nutcrackers - 9 or 10 of them. Most of them represent a country - 2 Irish, 1 American, i British, 1 Italian, 2 Russian etc. They range in size from 2 inches to 18 inches and are inexpensive.

    I used to collect them but I don't know what I did with them, but I would like to start collecting them again. I do however have a tiny one and a few ornaments.

    My Mom collects nutcrackers, only started a couple years ago, she has about 20-30 or so, ranging in sizes. I thought I had a photo on this site with them, but maybe not. I'll definitly be sharing more photos this year!

    Nutcracker Dinerware

    I came across this Christmas dinnerware called "GRENADIERS". It's expensive but to use a piece or two for decoration would not be so bad.
