~The Nutcracker Story~

A children's story written in 1816
 by E.T.A. Hoffmann in which a young
German girl, 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 unique 
collection of 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....
They were sold by Avon.

These Islamic ones are very old.
My first ones.

The smaller one on the left, is German.

A Victorian one and on the right 
from T. Eaton Co.-Montreal,
A gift from sister Joyce.

The one on the right is a gift
from my cousin Gloria.
from Campbellton, N.B.

While visiting my son Daniel in 
Vancouver,  we drove down to Seattle 
and I bought my Granddaughter a
Ballerina, Nutcracker, at Macy's.
