Nutcrackers


~The Nutcracker Story~

A children's story written in 1816 by E.T.A. Hoffmann in which a young Marie Stahlbaums's favourite christmas toy, the Nutcracker comes alive and after defeating an evil Mouse King in battle, whisks her away to a magical kingdom populated by dolls.

I am sharing my Nutcrackers:

Uncle Sam- I've had him over 20 yrs.
Stars and Stripes of the American Flag.



Two Canadian Hockey players:
Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadians....
