A nutcracker . . . or maybe two

My one true vice . . . I stopped counting last year




I treated myself to this little fellow tonight.  I found him at Sam's for less than $5!  And he's musical and animated!




Maverick with his star




Ranger and the star from their tree




Our kitchen tree.  This is Joe's favorite.  I don't know if it's the colored lights or the matching ornaments but this one has always been his favorite




Guess what I'm doing this weekend . . . finals are over and I'm ready to bake!!

That is a LOT of nutcrackers! I like the cardinal on the top of your new one. I hope you enjoy your Christmas break and baking!

Hi Cathy, I LOVE your nutcrackers... I never collected them --but have always liked them. You have so many gorgeous ones!!!!

A Kitchen tree? How many do you have??? We only have one big tree--but there are several other tiny ones around the house...

Hope you enjoy your baking.
Hugs,
Betsy

Nice you have somewhere to display all you have.What a nice collection.Wish you were closer, I love to make goodies, and it is funner when you do it with others. I make plates for all my neighbors and some friends.

I love your collection. Glad that your finals are over - that's a great feeling, isn't it??

OMG, a friend of mine has a collection like yours but that one is much larger! :)

Sorry I'm so sporadic with comments, I'm just time crunched right now.

I love the hat on top of that tree :)
