Crackernuts...

I am feeling a little nuts today (in a good way) so I thought it was appropriate to show you my favorite Christmas collection. My nutcrackers. Lovingly referred to by my little cousin as crackernuts. I think I like that better.

I am not sure how many I have. I think my little army numbers over 50 now. I get them every year for Christmas. Most are dime store treasures and a few I brought back from Germany. No Steinbachs though, I could never afford them.

Here are my two German favorites. The Mouse Prince and Lion King...


I promise more pictures soon. My camera has once again eaten another pack of batteries and I keep forgetting to pick up more.
Merry Christmas from my Crackernuts!

Silly... use rechargeable batteries and a battery charger... it saves LOTS of money in the long run. Love the nutcrackers... I have one very large one and want lots more! The mouse one is sooooo CUTE!

Yep, the Mouse Prince is my favorite:)

What a neat collection! I'm sure your little cousin is fascinated by all of your Crackernuts!

Hey Girl! I am trying to resolve the internet issue by at least Christmas!!! I am praying super hard. I miss everyone and especially you!

What a wonderful collection of Nutcrackers! I mean, Crackernuts! I like the lion one and the mouse prince too. The Nutcracker Ballet is one of my favorite holiday traditions...watching it and it comes on PBS either tonight or tomorrow night.

I miss you and love you SOOOOOOOO much!

Love it! Like Marlene I love going to see the Nutcracker at Christmas time. Was that a wine bottle lamp in the background? Do you have a wine bottle bed? Because I might have to crawl into one of those after this morning.
